I’ve got some chemistry

It only took me about 19 years to finish college.  Surprisingly, I did take some courses in most of those years.  I’d enroll, go awhile, and then take some time off.  I’d finish a class or two, drop a class or two, or even just not finish without dropping out.  That...

My children have this look

My children have this look.  It involves cocking the head just a bit to the side, squinting the eyes slightly, and seemingly saying to themselves “he has spent most of his life in the past century”.  I can earn this look by coming out with some old saying they’ve...

Molly’s dog is a Chihuaha…

It had started innocently enough.  At summer camp in Florida, a couple other counselors and I took some of the younger campers for an evening canoe ride along the shores and passageways of the lake.  While paddling single file through a narrow passageway, one the...

Oh gross, don’t drink that!

I look sideways at my daughter and say “Two questions:  What do you think is wrong with this milk, and if it’s bad, why didn’t you throw it away?”.  Of course, I know better than to do this.  Never ask a child two questions at once and expect two answers.  Confirming...

When is a label not a label?

I bought a label printer, and it prints, but it doesn’t print labels.  Oh, I do take what it prints out, peel it off the backing, and stick the adhesive side onto my box, but it’s still not a label.  It’s just a sticker, a sticker with markings on it. Long ago I...

Have you ever seen a Purple Hurricane?

When I was but a wee lad my dad decided to initiate me to the delights of watching football.  So, we went to the only public high school in town, the G.H.S. Purple Hurricanes, and I saw my first football game ever.  And so, early in my life I learned that G.H.S. meant...

I talked to one of them

Yeah, I admit it. They’re not so bad after all. As long as we’re not discussing an action against one of my clients, I’ve even enjoyed talking with a variety of different transportation Enforcement officers. Occasionally, I learn something new, and often, we find that...

Daddy Knows Best

I may be old, but I’m not old enough to have watched the television show, Daddy Knows Best. However, as a father, I’d sure like it to be true about me.  Unfortunately, there’re several children that could testify eloquently about the number and severity of my...

Did You Have a Good Day?

At some time each evening, by telephone if not in person, my wife asks me if I’ve had a good day. And I’m usually baffled about how to answer. I’m sure this will bring me an accusation of over-thinking a simple question but, please consider the following, even if you...

I dare you to cross that line

Sigh. Those words were often the prelude to a butt-kicking. Although now I am a fairly large man with a shaved head, and no one seems to want to mess with me, as a child I was scrawny, weak, and uncoordinated, so the butt about to be kicked was usually mine. It was...
