Hey! That’s My Job

Print Friendly

 I recently saw a man giving a manicure to a woman. Then as I was driving down a street I saw a woman mowing a lawn in front of a business. What was wrong with these two things?                   I know what you are thinking, but you wouldn’t be … [Read more...]

The Follower

There is something following me around inside of my house. It’s my stationary bike.                   I leave it in a room where I think it will be the perfect place for me to ride my uh, you-know-what into tiny-hood. Then after some time that … [Read more...]

  Niche is one of those words that, to my liking, is spelled wrong. Shouldn’t it be “nitch?” Like stitch or switch or, well you get the idea. But no, it is niche. It means a little something that enhances a bigger something. Or something like … [Read more...]

   I notice smiles. It is just a thing I do. I’ve done it all my life. But bigger and better smiles became easier for me to show ever since I was in my last years of being a teenager when I had my first “real” job with benefits and went into a … [Read more...]
