Cell Phones and Selfies

Ok,  this is very embarrassing for me but I’ll come clean and confess: “I have used a Selfie Stick”. “There, I said it, are you happy?”  If you are like me, you will probably have to take a few moments to Google “Selfie Stick” to make sure you know what I’m talking about.  For those not…

Re-gifting Etiquette

Dear Mr Miller, My husband thinks it would be okay to re-gift an item we received from my great-aunt Ruth.  I, on the other-hand, feel it would be improper and cause some alarm to the recipient of the gift.  Could you please settle this argument for us? PS, if it’s not too much trouble, I would like…

Sick…

I glance over my shoulder and can just make out my base camp in the gloom.  I gauge the distance I have come and compare it with the distance to my objective.  Almost halfway.  I had started out on foot when I had left but after some time deduced that with the strong headwind I…

Just Wondering…

The kids are watching a movie, my wife has retired to our bedroom with complaints of a migraine (possibly brought on by the aforementioned kids), and I am left sitting alone in the living room on my favorite chair to contemplate some of life’s greatest and most elusive questions.  As I consider some of these…

Holiday Horrors

It has happened.  I am referring to the unnatural way that my household appliances have united in accordance with the calendar in order to sabotage my well being.      It happens every year around the holidays, the bathroom scales somehow gets in contact with our washer, (which is odd since I don’t even remember…

Changes and Themes

What is a pulse? acording to my site (or as my little 4 year old calls it: zanga zite.) I have no pulse. As I sit here typing, I can distinctly feel my internal pump doing its thing. I think I would know immediately if it wasn’t. But really, what is the big deal with…
