Originally appeared on Have A Little Humor on February 20, 2016: What are we humans here for? Why do you think we were plopped onto this giant rock and left to our own (maybe mobile) devices? It’s a fun thing to contemplate, but it can also drive you mad. Or madder, depending on your baseline sanity.

It’s true – just five days after our first Valentine’s Day together (wait, no, I don’t work on Sundays…), Work and I are raising our glasses and getting ready for a fun night (I do work nights) to celebrate our seemingly irreversible commitment to one … Continue reading HALH: Happy One Month, Babe
Originally appeared on Have A Little Humor on January 24, 2016: Maybe my goal to write every day was “unrealistic.” I am always writing in my head, whether I’m at work, in the grocery store, jabbing my foot into my break pedal while stopping and going for miles on the highway, talking to my mother about dinner plans, talking to my doctor about lack of … Continue reading HALH: Curse You, Biology

But because of the time commitment I structure around my writing … Continue reading HALH: It Begins Now, Kids

Originally appeared on Have A Little Humor on November 12, 2015: Warning: this blog post addresses the racially-motivated death threats against University of Missouri’s black community… and I should not have to say this, but the post itself IS NOT a death threat. It DOES, however, include a fictional obituary for someone who is still alive, and whom I know nothing more about than what a few online articles told … Continue reading HALH: Hunting the Hunter
