Tim’s Poo Poo List

Image by: N14219 – Flickr – skinnylawyer (1).jpg Today I’m traveling. I was seated, waiting for my flight to board, when emergency services wheeled a man by on a stretcher. I’m not making this up. It really happened. So, naturally, I immediately thought he was a passenger who had been ejected from a United Airlines flight. I’m serious. This was… Continue reading

Join Us for a Lunchtime Debacle in 360º

My sister couldn’t get the relish out of the container; so, like any good brother, I assisted… This is a 360º video. Use your mouse or trackpad to look at everyone’s reaction when the relish finally made its appearance. (The 360 interactive experience does not work on iOS devices. I’m not sure if it works on Android devices or not.)… Continue reading

I Believe in Synchronicity…

They proudly wear the derision of the sane… Continue reading

A Personal Problem

I suspect that most people have to get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom—at least on occasion. Granted, this is not something we talk about in polite conversation. However, it’s one of the more basic characteristics of the human experience. But I suffer from a unique personal problem. I fall asleep easily, very easily—often… Continue reading

Anxiety Medication

I have found the past several elections very, very stressful. (The change process is excruciatingly slow.) This election cycle is the worst of them all! My anxiety level has been through the roof. I’m already sweating, breathing heavily, and pacing the house! As a result, I will up my anxiety medication dosing on Tuesday, the day the election results begin… Continue reading
