I believe we’ve all had this situation: 

We’re in bed with our loved one, looking at our phones, and we come across a meme we find applicable to our lives. We tap our partner on the shoulder, show them the meme, they shake their head and laugh, and then we go back to do...

On Sunday when my buddy texted me that Kobe Bryant had died, I almost started to cry. 

And I am not one who cries. I wish I did. Damn it feels good. But for some reason whenever I get to the verge, whenever I feel the tears start to well up inside me, something stops it...

Tomorrow I’ll write about Kobe. 

Today, I’m writing about nipple tape. 

That is a not a phrase I type often. I don’t particularly like the word nipple. Or the word tape. And no this blog has not taken a turn for the erotic. It hasn’t gone from an in depth look at the hop...

My parents’ live in Pebble Creek. It’s a subdivision in the northern part of Greenville County. They’ve lived there for almo...

Blog change coming up!
At the end of this month, I'm taking my back catalog off line. I'll have two weeks worth up at a time, and if you are a Patreon you'll have access to the entire bunch. So I'm going to be re-posting some favorites. Today's is from last summer. It'...

I taught at 8am this morning. 

Yesterday was fourth graders. Today it’s 8am. I know what some of you are thinking: Davey- when did you anger the Gods? 

I didn’t anger the Gods. In fact these lovely humans are the students of my dear friend Anne, and I am covering for her...

I always expect that we’re going to have a good time. Maybe that’s my problem. 

This week I had treatment down in Atlanta. Before I got it, however, I had to get an echocardiogram. 

You see, while the treatment might save my life, it could also screw up my heart. So ever...

“Schadenfreude is the death of karma”

-Something I heard somewhere once

_______

I watched the National Championship game last night. 

Well, most of it. 

I turned it off after they took a touchdown away from Clemson on a weak offensive pass interference call. At that point I...

Jaimie and I saw a play over the weekend. We saw The Heath at the Warehouse Theatre. It was about the life and death of playwright Lauren Gunderson’s grandfather, and the effect he had on her life. The role of Lauren was played (and originated) by my high school friend...
