Ten year HS reunion with my best pals. As I arrive at my friend’s house, the first “casual” get together night, I notice her mom’s neighbor has a racist lawn jockey in their front yard. I am incensed. We proceed to the bar and get all kinds of messed up, having a great time, but still stewing. At about midnight, I Read more

But the idea was planted in my head from an early age that sometimes my emotions lie to me.” This is very much what I felt like when I came through active addiction. I had a realization that my brain lied to me; told me I could use “just once”. It was devastating knowing I couldn’t trust the voice in my head. Read more

I’m so sorry those things happened to you. My dad is a first generation Mexican-American and I worry something like this could happen to him. People are garbage.

I find myself referring to Black Twitter fairly regularly. Seriously, some of the sharpest, funniest, most decisive comments ever. And insights that so many people need to hear, just to provide an alternative to their own view.

I agreed to do a “working” interview, the second candidate that week . The first thing my boo ever said to me was, “Oh! You must be the employee du jour!” and I laughed and laughed. A few months later, we were having sex all over that office. Oh, and got married. Nineteen years ago.

I understand Pissing Contests; I don’t understand cruelty for cruelty’s sake. It also strikes me as misogynist-did she do the same things to her boyfriend? Why did the friend get the brunt of her cruelty? Why is the woman somehow more to blame?

It doesn’t matter she “didn’t mean it that way”! It’s racist. It is literally part of her job to think about “intent vs. impact”. Fuck this, fire her.

One of the most beautifully written books is “Wait Till Next Year” by Doris Kearns Goodwin. Baseball is lovely.

The dealer probably 1) purchased them not knowing they contained Fentanyl and 2) is an addict himself, trying to support his habit. And doesn’t deserve to be in prison the rest of his life. Let’s begin treating addiction like the disease it is. Jesuchristo. Yes, it’s a difficult, complicated disease but let’s work Read more

Uggggh. I found a piece of a tattered material in his bed. Turns out it was the remnant of his baby blankie and he slept with it over his eyes. So, ya, gross.

My older brother told me two things I completely believed for years. 1) “Lord of the Flies” was about garbagemen and, because he had serious allergies before the introduction of Claritin, et al, that 2) mucus or “snot” was a by-product of brain use. If one had a lot of mucus production, they were using the hell outta Read more

I was once addicted to Rx drugs and this is ALMOST the worst thing I did during that time. I had decided I was sick of myself so went cold turkey off benzos. I then took my 14 yr-old niece on a trip to the zoo because I was trying to be a decent person again. I woke up in an ambulance after a seizure with my poor Read more
