What Happened to ‘You’re In, You’re Out’?

I was driving my car the other day and heard a rumbling noise when I used the brakes.  It soon was time for an oil change and some other general maintenance so I scheduled a service appointment to get everything taken care of in one appointment. Usually, getting serviced is a ‘you’re in, you’re out’…

Reuben-the-Mail-Man

I was in the market for some quality tools to send as a gift to a family member on his birthday.  I found everything I needed online, added them to my shopping cart, and proceeded to complete the order.  Much to my chagrin I had to pay for shipping because the free version would have…

Did You Get Clipsy?

Did you get a little clipsy yesterday?  I didn’t; I paced myself. I first learned about totality, umbra, and diamonds in the sky a few months ago.  Oh, I guess I’ve heard something about Lucy being in the sky with diamonds but unfortunately, John Lennon isn’t part of this story.  Anyway, I have to give…

I’ve noticed that a lot of this chatter is of the ‘talk about myself’ variety. I was taught it was impolite to talk about yourself. Today, the backdoor brag, humblebrag, and…

Well, I Waited

I went to the doctor’s office the other day. I try to avoid them as much as possible because it usually involves a huge chunk of time, money, and a lot of hassle, but I had no choice.  I needed someone to look in my ear and the doctor’s office was the only place with…
