Flying Pizza

Posted Apr 30 2010

Matt usually pops out to pick up lunch for everyone, but today I had a bank deposit to make, so I offered to do the honors. We took everyone’s order and called it in: 2 salads, a 17″ pizza, an 11″ pizza, a 2-liter of Sprite and a 2-liter of Coke. I gathered up the […]

The Stuff That Life Is Made Of

Posted Apr 26 2010

Last week I got into a conversation with the volunteer who handles inventory control of the donated samples we receive in our Charitable Pharmacy.

Hoping to try another career where skillful hands would be beneficial, he decided to become a mechanic.

What Not to Wear

Posted Apr 12 2010

When I was a teenager, I once came downstairs dressed in a body-hugging t-shirt, bellbottom jeans that revealed pelvic bones in the front and butt cleavage in the back, a woven Mexican vest to hide that décolletage (at least until I was out of the house) and a pair of fringed leather moccasins that were […]

Thank Chef E for this one! A Texan is drinking in a Colorado bar when he gets a call on his cell phone. When he hangs up, he orders drinks for everybody in the bar because his wife has just given birth to a baby boy weighing 25 pounds. Nobody can believe that any new […]

Healthcare LTD: An Alternative Proposal

Posted Apr 5 2010

Thursday night I attended a rally in Columbus to celebrate the passage of the healthcare overhaul bill. Spirits were running high, but beneath all the exaltation there was an undercurrent of worry that the Orangemen* will succeed at either repealing or overturning the bill. I spoke with Senator Sherrod Brown, who openly admitted that the […]

A man gets sent to prison, and he’s put into a cell with a bunch of lifers who’ve all been there for quite some time. As they’re sitting around in the evening, one of the guys says “Eight,” and the others all burst out laughing. Then another guy says “Fourteen,” and again they’re all laughing. […]
