Ever since my kid has been big enough to tie quintuple-knots in my shoelaces, I’ve kept a list of my casual observations of life and the people in it. This is the first half of that list.
It was me. I was responsible for burning down my parents' basement. Well, almost. This is the story, and what I learned about parenting from it...
This is the story of the time I had my wrist broken, how my mom made one big mistake, and how that has caused her a life of (what I consider) silly regret about it.
I once got my bare ass stuck to a log in the woods. Literally. I couldn't pry myself off. And I learned some things from that experience...
This is the very unfortunate story of the time I accidentally got my nipple ripped off at Scout camp, how it made me a celebrity, and what I learned from all of it.
You all shared your most embarrassing stories. This is one of mine... The time they organized a giant search party for me after I pooped my pants on a Boy Scout hike.
I’m telling you right now, I don’t care how much you love your dog, there are some things you don't want right in your face. Ever. Or maybe you do, weirdo.
This is one account from my hundreds of experiences being severely bullied. And also how I happened upon my bullies so many years later, when we were all adults.
This. *This* is an example one of the something that can really mess-up your kid. It certainly messed me up. But I also learned some very valuable lessons.
We’re going to talk about this whether it’s awkward or not...
Once upon a time, I fell in love for the very first time. This girl was something else. But... I had a bit of a giant problem that messed it all up.
This is the story of the time my dad gave me and my brother our first "sex talk," and how we learned something *very* different than he was trying to tell us...
I almost died as a child. It happened before my memories started, and the stories were told so often they became real. But that doesn't do me much good when it comes to learning lessons, does it...
When I get into a lull or a rut, and when nothing on my to-do lists is getting done, there is one tool I use that works wonders. I call it my "NOT to-do" list.
Remember. We're all fighting our own great battles. These are the secrets you've never told anyone. And what everyone else believes is the truth. All new.
This is the short video from when I went to China and ordered pizza, and the top was moving when it came out. It's also the story of how this was the most disliked thing I've ever shared.
