We were having our weekly marketing meeting over Teams last week and my boss said I was being sassy. (He wasn’t mad or anything. He laughed when he said it.) This followed my comment in which I told D, my supervisor, "Sure, I'll have that assignment done before noon. As long as you don't drone … Continue reading Mr. Sassypants Strikes Again
You ever have one of those days when you’re so engrossed in what you’re doing at work, you glance at the clock—are surprised to see it’s only a few minutes before quittin’ time—and grumble a little bit, because by god, you’re on a roll and having so much fun you don’t want to go home just yet? … Continue reading I Can Do Funny
Recently, a fellow blogger asked her readers to play a game. You’ve just died, her post read. The sixth picture in your phone gallery is what killed you. Normally I avoid engaging in this sort of frivolity, even though I enjoy these types of posts.

I would have been rich and famous already, because I gotta tell ya, my dad has come up with some real gems over the years. “I love your parents,” Tara says. … Continue reading Shit MY Dad Says
I wake up this morning at 6:00 sharp, the predawn darkness enveloping me in a cocoon, thick and heavy. My stomach gives a little lurch as I realize that today is The Day. 6 years, 4 months, and 22 days ago I walked through the front doors of KNA as an employee. Today, I will … Continue reading The Perfect Sayonara
I have a sinking feeling that I might be a fame whore. First off, there’s the whole writing thing. I’d like to have a book published so my words live on long after I’m gone. What better way to achieve immortality? It would also be cool to have either a periodic element named after me … Continue reading OLFR
