Don’t Believe Me…

January 1, 2013


(It’s been several months, so I’m rusty… I hope you don’t mind that I’m writing again… and if you do, well, I’ll let you deal with that.) Please don’t believe me. Or even listen to me as if I know anything about anything. I’m just guessing here, making various choices based on my own experiences […]

Why Teach? or Why Do That Voodoo That You Do?

August 12, 2012


Here’s a joke: Q: What are the three best reasons to teach? A: June, July and August! Hahahahahahahha… uhmm.. no, wait… That’s not really that funny… As a teacher (particularly as a extracurricular teacher, and most particularly as a high school Theatre teacher) I always love the inevitable question once my chosen profession has been […]

On A Tuesday…

February 13, 2012


Tuesdays are strangely special in my world. I blame it on The Wife. How she became The Wife depends on which one of us you ask, but my version is (of course) very accurate. I was in my later 30’s and living with my mother. Don’t judge me. It’s just a starting place for the […]

The Mouse is Growing Up…

February 6, 2012


The Mouse is growing up. And I’m not sure I like it. Now, don’t get me wrong. I am NOT one of those “Oh, I wish she could just stay this age FOREVER!” kind of people. I have fond memories from her birth (see How The Mouse Got Her Name) to the occurrences of this […]
