Month: December 2017

When I was a kid, I was quite a nerd. (Cue people who know me personally: “What do you mean, ‘was’?”) I used to watch baseball games on TV and keep statistics in my own little scorebook. And for a lot of years before I was old enough to do anything else on New Year’s […]

Some Christmases really hold up to the test of time. Back in the day, all my in-laws and I would celebrate the day by first going bowling. There were 20 of us taking over the lanes. They were all good bowlers, but if I broke 100, I was thrilled. It didn’t matter, though. I got […]

Those three words can string together a sentence or they can be three separate words having nothing to do with each other—it’s totally […]
