“Well, son… That was… Testosterone.”

New to the city, my scared (and now awake) child asked what had just shaken the entire house. Rather annoyed by it myself, I decided to tell him... the truth.

The Google Translate Telephone Game

What would happen if you put a phrase into Google Translate, then pass the translation from language to language to language? Well, let's find out, shall we?

[doun-sahyz-ing] & [moov-ing]

There is the dictionary definition of "to downsize" and "to move," and then there is my definition, after having just done it for a week straight.

“You want to save your son?”

It was one of those desperate and impossible moments that as a dad, I've hoped my entire life to never find myself in...


What was quickly becoming one of the hardest nights I've ever had as a parent took a course all its own after these words were involuntarily shouted by my kid.

Promoting the Destruction of Marriage and the Nuclear Family Since 2010

It never fails. Any time I discuss why I got divorced and why others may or may not want to, the extremists show up. This is my reply to one of them.
