Ode to Nothingness

Oh, the thought of Doing Nothing. The very idea brings a tear of joy. If there was nothing to do, What wouldn’t I do? I think I wouldn’t go out in the car. I’m sure I wouldn’t go out in the rain. I wouldn’t fetch or carry or drop off a child. I simply would […]

Weird Hair

So I was talking with a person lately. (This is news, right?) And the person has, well, really weird hair. I can’t describe it to you, because I’m not that good a writer. Just kidding. Because I don’t want to offend any more people this week. It’s a goal. Let us just leave it at […]
