I Chewed Slowly for 6 Weeks. What Happened!?

I tried everything else. But the time came to take things to a whole new level. A scary level for me. After a lifetime of throwing food down my face like it was drugs I was trying to hide from an imminent police invasion, I needed to learn to slow things down. How Slowly, You […]

Damage Deeper than Anyone Could Imagine

Sometimes the smallest interactions can have the greatest impact. I needed to bring something to the dry cleaners the other day. When I went to pick up our item, I made some polite conversation with the really sweet guy in charge of the place. I asked him how business was going. And his answer made […]

Cancel, Boycott, Dislike, or None of the Above?

I need your help, loyal readers. I’m confused, and I’m once again trying to figure out how my mind works. The Folly of Cancel Culture I hate cancel culture.

Eating Slowly… the Hardest Test Yet

5 New Websites I Tried in 2020

2020 was absolute crap… but as I’ve written before, it wasn’t all bad. No major crisis ever is, really.

So somehow or other, in every crap situation a bit of positive leaps […]

Score Another Point for the Google Doctor Warrior

Score another point for a Google warrior who will do anything to avoid a doctor’s office. It is well documented how much I hate going to the doctor. No, I’m not afraid of shots. I don’t love them. I’m not a psychopath. My aversion to the medical world has nothing to do with fears of […]
