The Hard Side I Don’t Show You from the Wrong Numbers Posts

The truth. "Wrong Numbers" (where I send positive texts to random numbers) has its hard side and its dark side. This is what actually happens when I send those.

My Insanity, I Fear, I May Demonstrate

I didn't get a blog post written today because I became absorbed in this text conversation which hilariously got a little bit out of control...

Vicious Nurses and Saintly Lawyers

I went on dates with four different nurses and four different lawyers, and after the way I was treated, I can tell you that I have learned something about both.

Dear Noah, My Son, Now That You’re Eight

All the sudden Noah is eight years old. What the. How the. Who the. When the. Where the heck did the time go?! Haha. This is a poem I wrote him on his birthday.

This is Beautiful {Humaning} You

On Sundays (starting today) I'm going to bring my favorite responses from Friday's post asking readers to share a snapshot of that very moment in time...

Not to Brag, But…

Yeah. In 1995, on a day just like any other day for this 15 year old, I picked up a pencil and I amazingly drew... THIS. You can say it. Wow.

Eight Glorious Hours and Then Boom

It has been a heck of a few weeks around these parts. The thought of typing anything for a blog post right now is... Eh. Just watch this video. It says it all.

2010 – 2015: Amazing How Time Changes… Everything

Today I had to go back to the very first SDL post for some reason, and I couldn't believe the first pics I ever shared of Noah and of me compared to now...

“You Can Find a Better Word Than That”

While talking to a beautiful woman before we met for a first date, I used a phrase I've used all my life. Except, she shut me down. And she was right to do it.

Down to the Last Desperate Penny

The story of when everything had been put on the table. And the house had been turned upside down to find what we could. Somehow, we came up one penny short...

Not to Brag, But…

Today I found my old keepsake box, and look what I found. Not to brag or anything, but I (and my dog with the racist name) had some big things going in 1993.

The Border Collie & the Blogger

When things for me were just... stressful, this Border Collie in the car in front of me did something so unexpected and so hilarious that it changed everything...

I do it because… It is the only way I can do this at all.

Yesterday I embarrassed myself by completely losing it at the end of a very long rope which had finally run out. This is my response to one reader's email.

I Really Need a Hug Right Now. Badly.

I am in an Apple Store as I write this, horribly embarrassed and feeling like the worst human in all of history. Surely I am better than what I just barely did.

The Banter Killer

There are three kinds of people in this world. Those who get witty banter and jokes. Those who don’t. And the worst kind of people (at social events, anyway)…

The Picture They Didn’t Think I’d Have the Guts to Share

When a friend finds something special on my phone and thinks I don't have the guts to share it with the public... well... You know I'm gonna.

Tiny Fist in the Wind

I wrote this for a close friend. It was about becoming trapped in a bad decision for life, and the strength and battle it takes to get out of it.

My KID said that?!

Either Get Beside Me or Get Run Over!

There are these people in your life who are more or less *ruining* your life. Problem is, you don't know it because they have a smile on their faces...

Scrooge You!
