Friendship Road

Once in a while, a missed turn can create a new adventure. My best friend and I were once driving home from an excursion (probably from our single local book store) and had to take a detour. Afterward, a miscommunication resulted in us missing not only one, but two turns that would keep us on... Continue Reading →

I am, of course, talking about my thumbs. I am the unfortunate bearer of what some may... Continue Reading →

Bizarre School Memories

1.) Bag milk. Until second or third grade, my elementary school served individual milk bags during lunch. Which was fine, unless you stabbed them the wrong way. Then they exploded.

But after assuring her that it was a harmless activity (and that Dante was best read by candlelight next to a tombstone), she... Continue Reading →

Me

Meant to Be

Last Wednesday night, shortly after 10PM, I was forced to take a detour on my way home from work due to the endless amount of construction that swarms my pocket of PA this time of year. So, I turned off of my usual route and embarked upon the back way home. I made a turn... Continue Reading →
