What to Say about Your Valentine

When I was in grade school, I always hoped a certain blonde haired girl would drop a Valentine in my box. Each year from first through fourth grade I held my breath.

I never got the Valentine.

I used to think it scarred me for life, that Valentine’s Day would always be a day of dread and regret.

Then, one Sunday, I had lunch at someone’s house and I knew the rest of my life would be different.

I had found my Valentine, even if she didn’t know it.


3 Reasons Your Life Can Be a Comedy

Recently my son was asking questions about how my wife and I met. We were lab rats for a writing project in one of his classes.

Since I was out of town for the weekend my wife and I both wrote up our versions and emailed them to him separately. He enjoyed reading of our first meeting.

He thinks how are relationship started is comedic. Little does he know, our whole relationship has been a comedy.


I Think You’re an Autumn Chicken

The other day my wife and I were driving home from work and talking about the day. She works in HR and, since it was the beginning of a new semester with a number of new faculty and adjuncts starting work, she had a very busy day. After listing all the things she had to do during the day, she sighed and said, “I guess I’m no spring chicken any more.”

A thought came to mind and I couldn’t resist.

“Honey,” I said, “I think you’re an autumn chicken, now.”
