I’ve been writing ever since childhood, pretty much as far back as I can remember. The history of my mouth goes back even further. It’s been smarter than my brain since I first learned to talk. I write serious things for a living, but that’s the other half of my site, and I promise not to bore you with that kind of nonsense over here. On this side we’re all about fun, silliness, and tongue-in-cheek smarm.

I’m making all of this up as I go. I hope you’ll enjoy hanging with me. I have a lot of ideas that I don’t really have any other creative outlet for,* so I guess that’s what I’ll be sharing.

I’ve been married to the brilliant and beautiful Kendra since May 28, 1991. It’s my intention to be married to her until she inevitably cuts the brake lines on my car. We have three children. We’re also currently foster parents to two mostly delightful little girls. (I’ll let you know how that pans out.)

I’m glad you’re here. If you enjoy the things I write about, please join us in conversation and add your comments. If you don’t like the things I write, please read this before you comment. (Yeah, like you’re gonna do that.) And if you’re a spammer, well then please repent of your sins and get a decent life-giving job before it’s too late for you.


*Did you notice how I ended that sentence up above with a preposition? And did that bother you? Then I’d like to ask you to embrace the you that you really want to be, and release your elementary school English teacher’s demanding voice from your psyche once and for all. It’s better for everybody if you do. I’m gonna use words like gonna, and I’m gonna end sentences with prepositions. And I’m gonna start sentences with connecting words like “and” and “but.”

Churchill is credited with saying, “Ending a sentence with a preposition is something up with which we simply will not put.” I don’t know if he really said that. But it makes a good point, nonetheless.

P.S. I love you. Would you like a hug?
