Had other societies done this? Oddly enough, he could not clearly remember.
Decided to snooze political posts for a while. The bad news is, now all I see are ads for MasterClass...
The biblical books of Kings are rich, but can be challenging to read for many reasons, not least of which is the fact that many of the names are very similar to each other. (King Jehoiachin and King Jehoiakim, anyone?) It's like reading a novel with a couple who’s names are Bobbi and Bobby: "Why … Continue reading There’s a good chance we know the killer’s name
I present herein some actual examples, where words in simple, everyday sentences have been replaced with synonyms. Be advised/warned/informed/apprised.
As you can see, I'm not a poet. I just liked these words, together. A NOTE ABOUT TIME It's October. It's December. It's May again? And I'm not sure of the year. Time and time and time. A nickel buys bread, but there is no medicine to stop … Continue reading A Note About Time
It's not untrue, as this blog did ALMOST hit a record number of views yesterday! However, that number was 76, which is admittedly low compared to other sites and blogs.

In which an excerpt from my “forthcoming” common-sense, “instant-classic” parenting “book” is shared, one which highlights common flawed thinking as it pertains to being a parent AND being on time. Or something.
In which one of the “hardships” of being a popular author is laid bare in pure assumption. Or something.

And if I ever resume posting "fictional" chapters, then the "asides" will cease to be nonsense, and will be once again be high art indeed! (Or something.) I don't necessarily believe … Continue reading Gym-splaining
I listened to a Hemingway book during our drive down to Florida, so tonight's post, which is meant to relate a fairly common parental culinary struggle, is written (in a very poor imitation) in his honor. The waves were tall and dark green. There was much foam. The flag flying above the distant estación de … Continue reading Aside – Road Trip 2018
