The Greatest Casualty

It’s 10:00 PM and I’m sitting in the day room of the psych unit writing my patient notes. Because the hospital’s somewhat antediluvian, I have to scribble them out by hand. Unfortunately a Medicare auditor recently complained she couldn’t read … Continue reading ?

Nobody Fucks With Us

It’s twenty-four hours after my daughter was born and our hospital room is filled with balloons, stuffed animals and well wishers coming to see that yes, I had finally managed to reproduce. As Annie basks in her new mother glory … Continue reading ?

For our last “free” Christmas, my wife and I are going to the movies and having Chinese food! Happy Holidays!

Copyright of the Soul

In addition to buying car seats, bassinets, clothes, carriages, thermometers, infant tubs, diapers, mobiles, blankets, toys; thinking of names, going to birthing classes, finding pediatricians and gaming daycare scenarios, another issue is pressing on my harried consciousness – will I … Continue reading ?

This Is News?

These texts greeted me when I checked my cell-phone this morning. “You’re all on the internet!! For your Biden’s blunder about the Superbowl! Caught it on Fox News last night!”  “Way to make the VP look stupid, bro. LOL!!!” Groaning … Continue reading ?

Ten Thousand Shaves

It’s late Monday morning when I finally hit the shower. After the usual battle of soap versus stink, I towel off and start shaving. Ever since I switched to an old-fashioned double edged razor, I’ve developed a bit of a … Continue reading ?

Big Data?

My driver’s license is about to expire so I grudgingly head over to the most feared bureaucracy in New Jersey – the Department of Motor Vehicles. The DMV. When I get there, I discover the line just to get into … Continue reading ?
