Where’s My Brunch? – The Great Father’s Day Scam

Father's Day

Every May the refrain is familiar. Every year it’s the same. Every commercial on T.V. perpetuates it. Every ad on the radio hammers it home. They lay the guilt on thicker than the artisanal bacon at that new hip pop-up butcher. Don’t forget Mom. Make sure Mom knows how special she is. Take Mom to …

The clock on the top right corner of the screen read 5:45 A.M.  The same as it had each of the last five mornings. I stood in my basement office half awake. My eyes half-open and trying desperately to stay that way. My brain only half engaged and burning what little fuel it had on …

A Philosophy on Fear

“I’ve been reading a ton of ancient philosophy lately…” (buzz) “What are Common Lies Found on an E-Harmony Profile, Alex?” (ding) Yeah, that was my first reaction when I wrote it. “The Wife” is in the homestretch of advancing her degree with nothing but a couple of requisite Nurse Management classes, Organic Chemistry and one …

Race Recap: Detroit Marathon 2013

So often when I’m working through an idea for a post here, I lock into a concept and then try to find clever ways to slowly unwrap it for you.  Kind of a verbal striptease with my excessive use of ellipses being the grammatical pasties that cover up my real intentions.  It’s a little verbal …

Eight Is Enough?: Field Testing The 8 Hour Diet — Week 1

8 Hour Diet

Most accepted statistics show that approximately 50 million people each year go on a diet.

No Competition

I’m a competitive guy. Though I like to use a gaggle of different adjectives to describe myself, when you strip it down to its most basic components, the one attribute that seems to trump most others is my natural competitive instincts.  For better or worse, that gene seems to dominate my personality.  I’m kind of a …
