Drought? What Drought?

Drought? What Drought?

Pasadena encourages us to save water. Good god, I can’t water my lawn more than 3 times a week. If I can’t grow grass what am I going to eat? What will I drink? And what will I do a year from now when we don’t have any water anymore? I’ve been pouring my coffeepot […]

This is What 60 Looks Like

This is What 60 Looks Like

I’ve never been one to lie about my age. I’m beginning to consider it, but I don’t think I’m fooling anybody. It’s hard to get used to how I look as I get older. I think we all feel this way, at least around a milestone birthday. Maybe when I turn 61 it won’t hit […]

Ceci n’est pas une cheinne sur un divan

A cold is like a mosquito. It’s not the worst thing in the world but it’s an annoyance, and it usually comes along with a lot of other mosquitos to bite your friends and family. If a normal mosquito bites you it raises an itchy bump. If a bad mosquito gets you, you’ve got malaria. […]

Better than a Kegger

Better than a Kegger

Back when I was in college, when you wanted to have a party you purchased a keg of beer and some plastic cups, then played LPs until everyone passed out on the sofa. That was fun, but I wanted to host a more grown-up party for the official launch of my book, Act As If: Stumbling Through […]

Best Laid Plans

Best Laid Plans

When Birthday Month began I made a pledge: “I’m going to have a minimum of one adventure each week,” I said, “and I’ll tell you about my adventures here…an adventure is something I haven’t done before.” Today’s post is about best laid plans. For Birthday Week, and I mean for my actual birthday, John had […]

Friends (Birthday Month Adventure #3)

Friends (Birthday Month Adventure #3)

When I decided to have an adventure each week during birthday month, I hadn’t realized how hard it would be to include adventures in my schedule. I defined an adventure as something I hadn’t done before, which alleviates the pressure somewhat. All I had to do was go to a library branch I hadn’t visited […]

Wilma: the Report

Wilma: the Report

Wilma has been living with us for 9 months. We’re a family. I remember this with Boz, the feeling that his presence transformed us from a couple into a family. But we’re a different family with Wilma because Wilma is a different person. She’s more rambunctious (gross understatement), though only a few months younger than […]
