Bogarting the coffee

364606038_80_80

I had an epiphany this morning. I realized that I drink coffee … especially the 1st cup in the morning … the way many people smoke weed. I hold each sip in my mouth for several seconds (sometimes much longer) before swallowing it. Seems I’ve been doing it for years and just never gave it …

Romancing Taylor Schilling

Shazzer: I had a really weird dream this morning. Dr. Darling: Was I in it? Shazzer: Yes. But you were being played by Taylor Schilling.   Dr. Darling: Who’s Taylor Schilling? Shazzer: Piper from “Orange is the New Black.” Dr. Darling: I thought you were into Alex. Shazzer: It wasn’t THAT kind of dream. In fact, the whole thing centered …

Not making my case for fish or left-overs

noimg_94_80_805

Like many long-term couples, Dr. Darling and I have a number running jokes between us, one of which centers around my years-long campaign to try to get her to eat fish … specifically salmon. Swedes are a seriously fish-eating people … they serve 8 different kinds of pickled herring for every holiday, I kid you …

Sometimes klutziness is convenient

Titanium wedding rings have been in the news lately, and based on the image that NPR chose to use with their article (click the photo read it), I’m guessing there has been a surge in their popularity connected to same-sex marriage. And if this is indeed the case, it means that for once in our lives, Dr. …

Imaginary hospitality

noimg_20_80_80

Dr. Darling and I have a long-running joke between us in which we both casually make references to (what I HOPE is) her imaginary girlfriend. The idea is to out-cheek each other, and we’ve gotten pretty good at it over the years if today’s round is any indication. It started when the Swede won her office’s “there-are-too-many-people-on-the-schedule” lottery this …

So much for my imperviousness to cold & flu season

noimg_97_80_80

As a general rule, I’m a really healthy person. I rarely catch whatever bug is going around, even when Dr. Darling brings it home. In fact, it’s kind of a running joke between us that contagious diseases only travel one-way in our house. Not too long ago, I was bragging to some colleagues about how I had not …
