#122 Using nature as a fridge or freezer

There were once no fridges. Rooting beyond the purple stuff for Sunny D, popping open last night’s salty leftovers, and fishing out oily salad dressing that expired two years ago were dreams, dreams, they were all just dreams. Back then We The People stored food with uncold techniques...

#123 When someone in the movies gets hit in the crotch

Did you grow up with funny home video clips on TV? I remember lying on my stomach in front of the TV with my face in my hands laughing out loud at Bob Saget’s fuzzy scenes and high-pitched voiceovers. My cousins and I would start rolling till tears streamed down our cheeks as cats fell...

#124 Your first job

I used to run a sandwich shop. Yes, I was a rootin’, tootin’, mayo-squirting king in the dirty mustard-smeared sandwich underbelly. I helped manage about a dozen high school kids and together we fired sandwiches down an assembly line, into paper bags, and right on out the door. I...

#127 Little kids riding bikes

Babies stay put. Set a newborn on a couch cushion, kitchen table, or pull-out bed and it just lies around making spit bubbles. And sure, baby grows older, starts crawling, starts bashing into walls, but it isn’t until she begins riding a bike that everything really opens up. Yes, this is...

#128 Whispering movie reviews with your friends while the trailers roll at the movie theater

Making movies ain’t easy. Script ideas are batted around in basements, screenplays are slaved over under dim desk lamps, edits are massaged for months in coffee shop corners, ideas are pitched in glassy boardrooms, storyboards are drawn in dusty studios, phone calls are made and meetings...

#129 Making sure you have clean teeth at all costs

I stayed at my parent’s place last week. Now, I don’t know about you, but my parents go to bed about four hours earlier than I do. Pajamas and dental floss come out around eight o’clock and a late-night mug of warm milk and some idle newspaper flipping fills the family room...
