11/23/2018 Joshua Walker 0

I may have been born in Lawrenceville, but another city holds the title of “home” in my heart. Monroe, Georgia has been my hometown for the past twelve years, and its riveting culture and diverse […]


Ode to Flannel Sheets

Ode to Flannel Sheets “Beauty is truth, truth beauty,” And beauty occureth not without a good night’s sleep. Therefore without sleep, there is no truth, Only a jumble of undercaffeinated syllables.   Percale will do, […]


U.S.S. Nightmare

10/28/2018 Lori Duff 0

I’m not a huge fan of scary things.  Probably because my day to day life is scary enough.  As a lawyer, I’m one of the first people that gets a call when someone dies, I’m […]


My Superpower

“If you could have any superpower, what would it be?” Of course, I’m not going to get a superpower any time soon, but it’s an interesting question to contemplate. My first thought when presented with […]


Cleanliness is Next to Impossible

The biggest problem with cleaning your house beyond a swipe with a paper towel is that you realize the level of filth you’ve been living in. There was a stain on my carpet.  The stain […]


Mean Spirited Jerk Faces

If you’ve been watching the news lately, or even been trying to avoid it, or occasionally taking a gander at Facebook or Twitter or your social media of choice, or at the very least been […]


Hangin’ with the Cool Kids

09/01/2018 Lori Duff 0

I have absolutely no idea how I birthed a girl who is so cool that, while she might have asked me what the homework was or to borrow a pencil in high school, she would […]


30 Years Later

08/18/2018 Lori Duff 0

It had to be 1982, which would have made me 12, when my parents went off, perfumed, cologned, and dressed up, to their 20th high school reunion.  They came back later that evening in a […]


You Can Go Home Again

08/04/2018 Lori Duff 0

I got off the plane, and the smell hit me in the face with the force of a Mike Tyson punch. There was garlic there in large measure, and jet fuel – sure, it was […]


Pleasures of the Flesh

07/22/2018 Lori Duff 0

Being in possession of a human-type body like I am, there is some routine maintenance that needs to be done.  Most of that maintenance is not particularly pleasant.  It can be invasive, uncomfortable, or downright […]


To Yap or Not To Yap

07/08/2018 Lori Duff 0

For reasons I do not care to get into right now (though trust me, everyone is fine now) I have spent a lot of time in hospital waiting rooms lately. These are odd little microcosms […]


I Think I’m Funny

06/25/2018 Lori Duff 0

I have this absolutely non-humorous, borderline boring, slightly academic theory on humor, which is that laughter is the pinnacle of mindfulness. That is, when you are laughing, you are entirely in the moment in which […]


Ode to a Varsity Chili Dog

05/27/2018 Lori Duff 0

If you find yourself heading to Atlanta and you post something on social media like, “Going to the ATL – where should I eat?”  9,999 out of 10,000 people who reply will tell you to […]


For the Love of Worry

05/12/2018 Lori Duff 0

My Dad is in the hospital.  This, naturally, is cause for alarm, and I worry.  My parents live 600 miles away from me, so it isn’t so easy for me to just go and check […]


Pollen season

I have a superpower. I can take ordinary grocery items, like lettuce and milk and Little Debbie Snack Cakes, and turn them into pounds and pounds of pollen-induced mucus. I can do this without, apparently, […]


Golden Anniversary and Advice

04/01/2018 Lori Duff 0

On April 6, 2018, just a few days from when I am typing this, my parents will have been married for fifty years. Yup, their golden anniversary has arrived. There are a number of miracles […]


Sleep Training my Teenager

03/03/2018 Lori Duff 0

I’m having to sleep train my teenage daughter.  You remember sleep training, don’t you?  When your sweet precious angel baby was six months old and you thought if you didn’t get three whole hours of […]
