Sometimes my Irish heritage makes me a perfect target for teasing. For example, if I were to wear all white out to public places, there’s a very good chance people would arrest me for public nudity. When I got out in the sun, people ask if I’m a vampire with chicken pox. We went to […]

I don’t know what to do. Ground him? Staple his pant legs to a chair? Stop time? How do we prevent our children from growing up too fast without stunting everything that makes them fun to watch grow up? I guess we can’t have it both ways, so we just get to cling to the […]

On Independence Day, of all days, we declare our dependence on things like scales and Apple watches and Fitbits to help keep us in check. I know weighing yourself isn’t the end-all of health, but we’ve hit a new low (or high) of health unconsciousness. So to celebrate, we’re eating barbecue and chips! – More […]

I can’t really contradict her. Not when I have days where my zipper was down more than it was up. And, it’s true, there’s also my lovely fart-singing voice. We live in a world where adulthood isn’t the pressed slacks and wingtip shoes it used to be. For a lot of us, now it’s a […]

My wife is an evil genius. She thinks of things before anyone else and catches tiny inconsistencies immediately. So, of course, she would say something like this. I mean, she’s asking for a friend, obviously, but I just love the way her mind works. And if I’m found at the scene of a crime, I […]

Pull up a seat, boys and girls. You see, after you have kids, hell even before that, there’s a period of time where you may eat a bit more than you used to or is even reasonable. For me, I gained weight at every step while my wife was pregnant. Both times. But here we […]

“Cuddles. Get ’em when you can.❤” –Avara   The older your kids get, the faster and more painfully distant they can become. I know I’m whiling away the hours and days before my sons push off into the vast seas of young adulthood. They will never know what it’s like to have a father who couldn’t […]

“Pretty sure the pharmacist just called me “sir”. Not really sure how to feel about this.” –Avara   As a kid, lots of people on the phone called me ma’am. No idea why, and it was very frustrating, though I can’t even describe why. Gender identification is a hot-button issue right now. I guess we all […]

“I’m so out of shape, I’m pretty sure the strongest muscles in my body are my kegels.” –Avara   My wife is a very strong person. She is stronger, in moments, than I am. She doesn’t stop. It takes a lot to piss her off and sometimes that strength clouds her ability to take compliments from […]

“Recorded my husband snoring last night. Plan to use it to wake him up. This is how you can tell we’ve been together 16 years.” –Avara   My wife and I have been together for a long time. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t a game still afoot. We still make fun of each other. And […]
