Breakfast Every Day

I feel like I’ve mentioned before that I don’t like to listen to the radio. Mostly, I think it’s because I’m unhappy with today’s style of music that seems to be popular with the kids. If it’s not the stuff I grew up on in the 80s and 90s, I’m likely to turn it off. … Continue reading Breakfast Every Day

The Free Bagel

Are you familiar with the SNL Digital Short/Lonely Island tune "Threw It On the Ground"? You probably should be in order to understand the humor of this post. Look it up on the YouTube and then come back. Are you back? Good... Each Wednesday morning, I meet with a small discipleship group at Panera. And … Continue reading The Free Bagel

What I Learned from Whole30

First of all, I think I'm well within my rights and privileges as a human being to stop and take a sigh of relief at having completed such an ordeal. *sigh* *relief* Okay, let's continue. Y'all, 30 days ago, I somehow got roped into participating in the Whole30 with a group of coworkers and friends. … Continue reading What I Learned from Whole30

4 Things You Shouldn’t Do at the Drive-Thru

The drive-thru lane is something that, I'm fairly confident, I can speak about with some authority. After all, I did spend four years of my adult life working as a drive-thru bank teller. There are just certain things that a person who is taking the drive-thru lane should not do. But this isn't about the … Continue reading 4 Things You Shouldn’t Do at the Drive-Thru

The Apology

It was a beautiful afternoon. The kind of day that kids daydream about when they're stuck inside a school listening to their teachers drone on and on about World War II or the Pythagorean Theorem. Christopher had been waiting all week for Saturday to get here and he had been praying just as long for … Continue reading The Apology

So Many Questions, Part V

Last one, I promise... 81. Have you ever risked a friendship by telling someone you liked them? So many times. And, as you can tell, it worked out great. Each and every time. 82. Would you rather be alone doing something you enjoy or doing something you don't like with your best friends? Doing something … Continue reading So Many Questions, Part V

An Open Letter to the Pop-Tart People

I eat more Pop-Tarts than I should probably admit to. I could say I only reach for the name brand toaster pastry when I'm running late and need a quick breakfast on the go. Sadly, that's what a lot of my mornings become.Despite my long-standing relationship with the Kellogg's company and the Pop-Tarts brand, I … Continue reading An Open Letter to the Pop-Tart People

Life Story: Chapter Sixteen

Welcome to a series of stories that basically make up my autobiography. It’s not entirely thorough, but I’ll do the best I can with the memories locked away inside my head. Could be therapeutic for me. Could be humorous for you. Either way, enjoy… Previously on Life Story... I wished for a bike and the … Continue reading Life Story: Chapter Sixteen

Omelet Shoppe Confessions: Fight Club

My memory of this particular Omelet Shoppe trip is sketchy. Not because I received any sort of brain damage. And not because there was any wrong doing on my part. But because the night has since reached legendary status. It started out like any other late night OS visit. A somewhat large group of us … Continue reading Omelet Shoppe Confessions: Fight Club

Omelet Shoppe Confessions: The Proposal

One fateful post-Spring Formal evening, a large group of us decided to make a run to the Omelet Shoppe, as we often did after gala events. Because after a formal dance, nothing says "classy" like a greasy, smoke-filled diner. That night, there were enough of us to have to spread out and sit at several … Continue reading Omelet Shoppe Confessions: The Proposal
