New Couch, Was Just a New Couch

March 31, 2014


The New Couch...

  It was February when I bought the couch. In the showroom I had imagined parties at my house, the couch, wrapped in an ‘ethnic blue’ upholstery, holding guests firmly and elegantly; the guests, friends who drank dirty martinis while wearing high heels. I have not a single friend who does those activities simultaneously, but [...]

heathers the musical

My mom and I wanted to go into the city and see a play. It was last minute and my mom had this tanning appointment, but Wednesday worked for her. The description read: “Nice high school girl plots revenge against her popular best friends.” I remember when I was in high school which wasn’t too [...]

      Guest Post by Suzanne Hegland   The other day on my morning commute I glanced at my reflection in the rearview mirror and discovered a hole in my head that I had forgotten all about. Well, ok. Not my head. My ear. The left ear to be exact, because back in 1983 [...]

The Icky Truth Of Talking To Your Kids About Online Porn

teen porn addiction

Guest Post by Maggie May Ethridge I asked her, sure of the answer: “Have you seen porn online?” One of the hardest things for me to admit in life is a failure of imagination–being a writer, it’s a point of pride. But here, in the bright-eyed, pony-tailed, American Girl doll-loving face of my 11-year-old daughter [...]

No Sugar, No Flour, Bye, Bye Esmeralda

February 18, 2014


My muffin top, another problem of privilege...

    I’ve named her Esmeralda. I’ve named her, because she’s cute. She warm, she’s soft and she knows how to have fun and eat like a barbarian. She didn’t bother me much until she bothered my doctor. My blood pressure was so high I was put in a dark room to relax. I had just [...]

A Woody Allen 12-Step

February 6, 2014


Manhattan Woody Allen

**Trigger warnings about sexual abuse.** 1. Your first Woody Allen movie was probably Zelig. You were fascinated by the charm of the grainy 1920′s footage shown in the film. You were obsessed with old movies like Citizen Kane–particularly movies about men who claim to be someone they’re not. You were amused by Zelig’s chameleon-like ability [...]
