Neighbor, This Isn’t Okay Either

I live in an ignoble community of townhouses. Row after disheveled row of buildings huddled together for a quarter-mile, filling both sides of the street on which I reside. Each building contains 6 or 7 units. This means that I see and learn a lot more about my neighbors than I care to. For instance, … Continue reading

Can A Prank Go Too Far?

Surely you’ve all seen the old show Punk’d where Ashton Kutcher plays elaborate pranks on fellow celebrities. You’d laugh along while the looks on those being Punk’d would say, “Is this shit really happening to me?” At the end of the episode the prank would be revealed and everyone would have a hardy laugh. And possibly utter … Continue reading

Blaming and Punishing The Victim

According to Wikipedia, victim blaming happens when “the victim of a crime or any wrongful act is held entirely or partially responsible for the harm that befell them,” and that is the most apt definition I can think of.

Sweet, Sweet Validation

Since I began blogging over three years ago, I’ve read a handful of posts from mothers who chose to formula feed their children, and they spoke about the backlash they received for that decision. They were shamed. Their commitment to raising a healthy child was questioned. They were told they were horrible parents. They were … Continue reading

For reasons unbeknownst to me, the following video showed up in my recommended viewing list. Why … Continue reading

Never Say Always

Twice in my life I have stood in front of family and friends and made very public promises that I would love and cherish another person for the rest of my life. Twice in my life I have had another person stand in front of their family and friends and promise to be there with … Continue reading

They Don’t Like Me

I know I haven’t been on here very much lately, but I have a good excuse: I think the machines are out to get me. For the past few weeks, it seems like everything that has wiring in it has either worked against me, or broken down. In the case of the radios I deal … Continue reading

A&E, Phil Robertson, and Unpopular Opinions

Duck Dynasty. We’ve all heard of it. Sadly. It is A&E’s popular show about a wealthy family who owns a company called Duck Commander, which is famous for its duck calls. I have seen only a few minutes of the show when I was forced by my boss to watch it as he laughed about something … Continue reading

Judge Not Lest Ye Be Judged

Judgement is a natural reaction to discovering almost any piece of information. We all judge. We don’t do it consciously, though. It’s innate. It’s human nature.
