If I only had a penis, I'd be funnier
I'm listening to the PG Comedy channel on Pandora (kids in the room, got to limit their vocabulary to "aw, shucks!"). I'm on the tenth comedy track and I've heard some great bits, but not one of them by a woman. I heard a man make a joke about never thinkin...

The Parent Bus
There's magic in that big yellow bus. The most powerful of which is that I don't have to drive the big yellow bus. When it pulls up to the curb, my kids stand in line until the doors whoosh open, and poof, like Cinderella off to the ball, they are whisked a...

They are not lies so much as a half-truths. Ones in which I tell the untrue half. Me on Lifetime Moms.
As if the pediatrician believes 100% of her patients “love broccoli” and “prefer to be outdoors instead of in front of a screen.”

Poetry: How poets have been getting lucky since forever
There comes a time in every marriage, long-term living arrangement with a lover, and romantic written correspondence with a death row inmate, when epic professions of love no longer get your motor running.  When you've been listening to the same man snore f...

If you're racist and you know it, clap your hands
Clap. Clap. If you're reading this, even if you're a good and kind and loving person, chances are you're a racist.  I am.  I'm not a hooded member of the KKK. I'm not pouring poison into my children's ears about the nature of some people predicated on the c...

What to do if your turkey is jacked up on Thanksgiving
I give you this advice under duress. I, like so many patriots, want to perfect the one thing that will make me, without contest, the Greatest American. I want to make a juicy and flavorful Thanksgiving turkey that also has a uniformly crispy skin. It's how ...

The next book you won't be able to put down, The Unraveling of Mercy Louis
I'm reviewing the novel The Unraveling of Mercy Louis by Keija Parssinen. You should read the review, but if you don't, let me tell you in plain English. This book is probably the best novel I've read in years. Buy it.  * When I finally got around to watc...

I'll say this, no one ever worries about getting a Christmas present wrapped in birthday paper. Like many December babies I worry that my birthday is marginalized by Christ's birthday. I put on a brave face, but for a guy who was all about humility, he sure...
