Ping Pong Balls
“Tell them you had a bad dream,”
he said when I began to cry.  But I was taught never to tell lies. 
So I told the truth. She picked me up and laughed. “There’s something funny
outside,” she said, distracting me from my tears but only enough that I knew

Ping Pong Balls
“Tell them you had a bad dream,” he said. But I
never told lies. So I told the truth. She picked me up and laughed. “Let’s go
see his new car,” she said, distracting me from my tears but only enough that I
knew what she was doing. I was four. “You told them...

Best Christmas Present Ever
“He sure does have some stinky toots,” my husband
said while we played cards with friends. We all wrinkled our noses in agreement

Brody, The Big White Dog
We’ve had Brody, the Big White Dog, living at our
house for three weeks . . . today. It’s been a learning curve. But we expected

to Jesus in February. It was time. It was painful—for us. S...

Christmas Collision
We have a beautiful Christmas tree next to our new
fireplace, both of them all lit up with lights and flames and sparkles. The
tree is fake, the lights and fireplace are electric, and the ornaments are made
of plastic. It’s all about safety around here. We ...

We The People
I got depressed today. Actually, I got depressed two weeks ago when we
filled out our early ballots. I just got re-depressed when I realized they’re
going to count them today. I know it’s not polite to discuss religion or
politics here, not unless it’s a Su...

Living Dangerously
Grocery shopping is dangerous. I’m no newby at it, either. I’ve been navigating
produce aisles for forty years and, while I consider myself an expert, don’t be
fooled. I make this look easy. Retail therapy is not for the faint of heart. I
deserve a purple h...
