Think about all the things wind does to you: makes you cold, blocks your movement, messes up your hair, makes noise, etc.

0 Comments · Wednesday, March 27, 2013
There’s one reason I’d really like to have children someday and one reason I want to get my tubes tied the next chance I get, and they both happen to be the same thing. I don’t want to stop being a kid myself.  

I Never Learned How to Make Friends

The neighbors I have now are no doubt the friendliest, most interesting and, well, neighborly street-mates I’ve ever encountered. So why do I sometimes find myself avoiding them, or any potential friends for that matter? The concept of neighborhood etiquette (and previously, dorm life) is totally lost on me.  

That's What Craigslist Is For

0 Comments · Tuesday, March 12, 2013
If there’s one thing that Facebook is good for, it’s learning about stuff that’s happening on the Internet. My colleague Mike Breen recently posted a humorous comment along with a story he shared titled, “Mother Tried to Sell Her Kids on Facebook for $4,000.” Mike’s take: “What an idiot! That’s what Craigslist is for!”  

I Have a Gambling Problem: I Don't Enjoy Playing Poker

0 Comments · Wednesday, March 6, 2013
 Most people who play poker know more terminology than applicable math, which you might be surprised to learn is essential to the game. But because anyone at the table can win any hand at any time, there’s a misleading allure to the contest. People who play badly sometimes beat people who play well.  

The F-word

1 Comment · Wednesday, February 27, 2013
When I think of prejudiced people, I envision ignorant, ultra-conservative, hateful people out of touch with modern reality. But fat-shaming comes from all types of people — including educated, progressive, alternative folks that one wouldn’t tend to pigeonhole as discriminatory.   

Fake IDs

1 Comment · Wednesday, February 20, 2013
Though we’re only about seven weeks into 2013, many of this year’s top stories (or, rather, the stories the media has made into “top stories”) share a common thread — often, people are not what they seem.
  

On My Marriage, Divorce and Christian Outlook

I did truly love the man I thought I was marrying. I don’t, however, think I would have married him if I were raised differently. What I mean is: I’m a Christian.
  

Call Me Just to Talk

0 Comments · Wednesday, February 6, 2013
The other day, you called me just to talk, and it scared the shit out of me. You sat down, somewhere quiet and alone, gambling a little bit of your evening hoping I’d pick up and gamble a little bit of mine on you, too.
  

The Real History of #yeswecanseco

Jose Canseco owes my friend Jarrett an apology and an audiobook.  The former Major League Baseball player/steroid user/reality TV weirdo last March posted a series of tweets aimed at schooli  

It's Really Scary to Be a Writer

1 Comment · Thursday, January 3, 2013
It’s pretty widely accepted that creative types — the kind whose work is meant to disseminated — share a common trait: swollen, bulging egos that must constantly be nursed with attention, positive or otherwise. The writer writes, of course, because he likes the sound of his own voice. 
  

Family Tree

I remember riding to Corsi Tree Farm way out in Hamersville, Ohio, in those seats and stretching my short, stubby legs. Today, the ride to Corsi makes me claustrophobic.

Toys have been swapped out for smartphones, which keep us preoccupied on the long, coiling drive there.    

Just Drive

One of the main things that holds our society together is trusting one another. We, as humans, rely on other humans to follow established rules and do their “jobs,” whether it’s a surgeon, a pilot, a cop or a politician (go ahead, giggle).   

Yes We Can (But We Already Knew That)

0 Comments · Wednesday, November 28, 2012
 Can women be funny? It’s a question so brain-numbingly idiotic that it’s best left ignored, but that’s difficult when multiple facets of the media — from pop culture bloggers to comedians on Twitter — recycle the “debate” over and over again.    

Six Ways to Fight the Fiscal Cliff with Holiday Spirit

0 Comments · Tuesday, November 20, 2012
With tax hikes and spending cuts known as the “fiscal cliff” on the horizon and a Congress that has been unwilling to meet under the mistletoe to decide how they will rear the 2013 New Year’s Budget-Baby, it seems that we as citizens need to provide our elected officials an example of how to kiss and make up this holiday season.
