The One Where I Fear My Family

My phone began to violently vibrate, startling me out of my comatose state. I was staring at the TV, but wasn’t really watching it. I was defeated and weary after an arduous battle with Baby C over his afternoon nap. The display on my Android phone told me my father was calling. I didn’t really feel like … Continue reading

That’s My Girl!!!

Whenever my daughter hears, or sees, something new, she gets a particular look on her face. It’s half confusion (because she doesn’t know what she just heard or saw) and half excitement (at discovering something new). Since she’s at an age where most things are still new to her, she gets her “new thing” look … Continue reading

You Won’t Like Me When I’m Angry

I realize that this will be my third post today and that is completely abnormal for me, but I need to unload. I know I’m stressing the belt around your email account’s waste, but I don’t care. As most of you deduced from a poem I published last week, Superbitch moved out. Despite both of our … Continue reading

Rough Couple of Weeks

It all started two weeks ago today. It was a normal Saturday. My wife and I ran some errands, caught up on some missed TV shows, and played around with our daughter. Then, just as we were starting to get Baby E settled down to go to sleep, it happened. She got sick. Vomiting is … Continue reading

What We Have Here Is A Failure To Communicate

I’m sure none of you actually noticed, but it has been a little over a week since my last post. Things have been crazy at work. Baby E has been sick (She’s doing better now, but it’s been a rough week). So, I thought I’d start back off with something that happened at work yesterday. … Continue reading

Filter Adjustment

During the summer months, because it gets so hot in the warehouse, I’m allowed to wear shorts. However, if I have to go into the tech room for some reason, I’m not allowed to wear shorts. You have to wear pants in there. So, I keep a pair of pants in my locker at work. … Continue reading

When I Was 21

The very gifted and wonderful Elyse published a thought-provoking (as usual) piece the other day about dreams and aspirations at the age of 21. This was prompted by her friend’s 21-year-old daughter who must have surgery soon that might render her unable to have children, something she has already decided against. Elyse began her post … Continue reading

No Title Fits

“You can’t stay here.” One minute before, you called me to confirm that I’d still be coming home this weekend.  I smiled and responded in the affirmative.  Last weekend, we made progress and I couldn’t wait to resume. You asked if I heard your message from Wednesday and I responded that I was ill.  Then you spoke … Continue reading

An Evening With Baby C

“Hi, Daddy” Baby C shrieked excitedly as I entered my mother’s house. He was, as usual, parked in front of her computer playing games on the Nick Jr. website. I stole some love from my niece (hey, she’s stingy with it) before sitting down on the couch to let Baby C play for a few … Continue reading

The Fish In The Pants

In the summer of 1985, I went on my first real vacation. By real, I mean my family and I didn’t sleep in the spare room at a relative’s house for a week. We piled in to the family station wagon and made the 12-hour trek from da ‘Nati to Sunset Beach, North Carolina. I … Continue reading
