No, Last Month’s Eclipse Was Not the Most Spectacular Display of Celestial Pageantry

Okay, I admit it. I was one of the millions of mesmerized viewers of the Great American Eclipse last month.  I was decked out with a camera, phone apps, and dopey-looking sunglasses.  I stood out on my driveway eagerly awaiting zero hour, alone, looking up. The celestial phenomenon did not disappoint.  We weren’t in the path of totality but it was jaw-droppingly good, spell-binding, mind-blowing, and otherworldly.  The excitement was...

3 Secrets to Sabotage Worry

Let me guess…you worry. You worry about how to pay your bills, you worry if someone at work is going to throw you under the bus, you worry about a loved one’s health issue, and you worry about your children regardless of their age.  I presume this is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg for you in the worry domain.

Why Selfies are Scarier than Freddy Krueger

Freddy Krueger was scary.  I mean really s-c-a-r-y! He was the central character in the 1980’s Nightmare on Elm Street film series and he scared the living daylights out of me.  Images of his scarred skin, clawed glove, and dark brown fedora hat still evoke hair-raising sensations.  The dude was frightening.  The most spine-chilling image I had seen. At least he was until I started looking at “selfies.” Oh, I’m not talking about our...

Why You’re Not Marathon Training (And what you should do about it)

Marathons are challenging but who amongst us enjoys running for running’s sake? I know there are joggers in the audience and I applaud you.  However,  even when I was younger and, in much better shape than I am now, I didn’t like to run unless it was while playing baseball, tag, or football with the neighborhood gang.   We didn’t run just to run…there had to be an end goal in mind. Marathon training is a BIG deal.  I googled it and...

How to Stymie the Annoying Ringy Dingy

Ring. Ring. Ring. You’ve reached the offices of We Can’t Be Bothered to Pick Up the Phone.  If this is a life-threatening emergency, please hang up and call 9-1-1.  Press 1 for an appointment.  Press 2 for prescription refills.  Press 3 to speak with a nurse.  Press 4 for directions to our office.  Press 5, 6, 7, or 8 for anything else you may think of. Geez, remind me again why I was calling. Trying to get through to...

One New Year’s Resolution I Really Want to Keep

Just like you, I made a New Year’s resolution. And, just like you, I’ve already blown it. New years seem to bring our best intentions to the forefront.  It’s a worthy endeavor and this year I wanted my resolution to carry some real weight; something that I truly want to see to fruition during the next 365 days and beyond. What is it, you ask?  I want to spend more time knowing God. This statement may seem a bit odd for someone who...
