I was inexperienced, naïve, scared, and totally grossed out with the thought of exchanging bodily fluids of any kind. He was tall, blonde, ripped, and more than willing to usher me into what would hopefully be a joyous celebration of my sexuality. I remember him fondly…a man who took his time…and promised to tell his fraternity brothers the next morning that he fell asleep in the car, instead of stuck to the wet spot of my 100 count cottons.

It seems to be a fad of late to revisit our 16-year-old pubescent selves, and with the benefit of hindsight offer up words of wisdom to reassure... Read More

While some people spend St. Patrick’s Day clad in green, doused in Guinness, and channeling Riverdance, twenty-one years ago on that blessed day I was dilating 10cm pushing the reluctant youngest of my three daughters into this crazy world.

From that moment on, she became an Irish girl. It hardly mattered we came from hearty Norwegian and English stock, because when her head crowned at the onset of the beloved Saint Paddy’s parade, we were immediately hurled into a foreign land of green food coloring, shamrocks, leprechauns, and drunks hell-bent on puking corn beef chunks.

Remember all those animal tales and fables about the battle between the farmer and cute little characters such as Peter Rabbit? Well they are not so adorable in reality. In fact these local herbivores are a menace that threaten to strip country gardens bare if left unchecked.

For example, it was a mystery when our carrots kept disappearing one year at an alarming rate. Every morning there were a few neat, long holes left in the clay soil where our carrots had been. They were disappearing without a trace. Slowly a long worn down pathway appeared that ran from our back vegetable patch,... Read More

Dear Ely,

I exist in a den of iniquity, amidst the most perilous scoundrels this city has seen. I’m a single woman who, through unfortunate life circumstances, has been forced to move to the slums. Just outside my door I find gang members, drug dealers, hookers, and pimps. The only “legitimate” businesses in the area are seedy bars – the haunts of murderers and rapists. Needless to say, I do not feel safe. I’m afraid to leave my apartment, and when I’m here I fear that some thug will break in and murder me. How can I feel safe in my own home?

Sincerely,

Lady... Read More

I am fairly certain that I don't suffer from multiple personalities, but I do hold court with some wild voices in my head. It's not that I believe they are part of me, nor do they possess my thoughts, but they are definitely looking for an outlet. One such character plagues me.

This is the voice of Mama...who is giving words of advice to her young son. I am told that people don't always heed good advice. More often than not they see it pass by and wave. I suspect this is what's happening here. A little counseling about the birds...the bees...the wasps...the hornets...and everything else... Read More

GERM N' WARFARE. riginal.

"I'm as madly unaffected as Hell!" NO! I'm not going to hitch a ride/bash on that same old worn- out tattered pugilistical punching bag of Peter Finch's fist-rammed verbalibrium expose imploring the downtrodden populace to "throw open your windows and rant out, I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore!" The American film afishy n' nardo can can-can. The Chinese film- going public can't. IE: Chan (the actor) is not going to chant out "Jack of" anything as the process of "opening the window" and saying ANYTHING coherent could or would be met with... Read More

It occurred to me in high school that some kids were already jockeying for positions in life—posturing themselves for a grand entry into a world they instinctively understood. I could only imagine these same individuals lulled by a Bach sonata in the womb…their parents calmly reciting Shakespeare during the crowning moment, and when those determined bundles of joy appeared, they were off to the races in the Nobel Prize fast lane.

I just didn’t understand the rush, particularly since during the teen years the mere task of arranging colored beads on my Campfire Girl vest presented a challenge.
