Is Evility a Word?

Basically, I’m an evil person.  I have no doubt. Somewhere in my chromosomic configuration, I have the evil gene.  Or genes.  And how can one live in denial of his genetic structure? I realize that some of my friends and … Continue reading

The Worst Day of My Life

It was a day like any other.  There wasn’t anything unique about it.  It was so nondescript, in fact, that I recall nothing else about the day except that moment.  Of course, everything else in my life pales in comparison … Continue reading

Dreaming my Life Lesson

Horrible.  That’s the word for it.  Horrible.  It was the most horrible dream I’d ever had.  I woke up in a cold sweat.  I believe I was actually shuddering with fear.  What I saw or, more accurately, what I heard … Continue reading

My Misfortune with Cookies

What’s the deal with fortune cookies?! They’re not even fortunes anymore. You used to open them up and they’d tell you that you were going to be a millionaire or famous or something. They never came true; even if you … Continue reading

Keeping My Cool (?)

I try to maintain my temper… to “keep my cool,” as it were.  And I’ve gotten much better at it as I’ve mellowed into old age.  Perhaps mellowed and old age are not an accurate description of the process.  It … Continue reading

I’ve Always Had Trouble Keeping My Mouth Shut

Recalling the Places I’ve Done It

As I recall the many places I’ve done it, I have to fight the urge to do it right now.  I’ve done it quite often in the afternoon.  For me, afternoons are the best time but I’ve also done it … Continue reading

More Than I Need to Know

At one time, my youngest, Cameron, and I had annual passes to Disneyland.  We visited often on the weekends I spent with him. Going to Disneyland with Cameron is like visiting with my own personal Disney Talking Encyclopedia.  Everything you … Continue reading
