Eleven Days

When I say things like, oh 11 days isn't very long, in my head, it makes sense. Because 11 days isn't very long.  It's not even two weeks. I've been constipated and on crash diets that have lasted longer than that. But when I pulled up to the departures terminal, and he got out of the car and opened the back gate to grab his bag, it felt like forever. I met him on the sidewalk in tears and hugged him so tight, I thought if maybe I could just latch on to him hard enough, he wouldn't … [Continue reading...]

Brittany Learns to Share.

Andy Logo

The year they launched gmail, I bought Brittany an invite off ebay for $5.  Since then, she has taken great joy in emailing me her streams of consciousness multiple times a day while I am at work and unable to field her constant phone calls.

When I first started dating my husband in high school, we were rarely at his house.  His room was impeccably clean and done up in some kitschy Oakland Raiders motif, and I couldn't even mock it because, at the time, I had no idea the Oakland Raiders sucked, and I just assumed it was totally normal for high school boys to have poofy window valances featuring their favorite football teams. His family eventually moved 20 minutes away his senior year of high school, and he was put it what he … [Continue reading...]
