I was thinking…

Sometimes my friends brace themselves when I say, “I was thinking…” They know thinking is a dangerous activity, unlike eating and gossiping, which most people seem to prefer.

What the Heck is “Civilization?”

We use the word all the time, but what the heck is “civilization” anyway? “Oh, it’s like the opposite of savagery, or barbarism, you know.” Then why do civilizations act so uncivilized?

No excuse for violence from professional law enforcement

I paid close attention because I was either going to de-escalate a tense situation or run … Continue reading

How to Pass a Test from Hell

A young friend sought me out, crying, because she had just failed an online test. “I’m a failure! I’m doomed! I’m going to be thrown out of college!” “Whoa, calm down, what’s going on? You’re smart, something’s going on here. We’ll figure it out.” I was an adjunct professor for two colleges and designed  a … Continue reading

True story from my brother who lives in New England: I was talking to a Muslim man behind the counter at the Rockfall store and I told him I had to go shopping for groceries because when I have money I buy food for poor people, that Jesus tells me to do that, and we … Continue reading

Hey! How have you been? My computer is kapoot and I broke down and ordered a new one. I felt sure it must be in by now, but they haven’t shipped it yet! Me: what? Not shipped yet? Mica: It ‘s only been 2 days. Me: No, it must be a whole week! Mica: No, … Continue reading
