Eh, change your outlook.

TRIGGER: SUICIDE (discussed in the context of a tragic news story.) Dear Annie: My ex and I got married when I was 19. We stayed together for 10 years, during which I was dealing with untreated depression. That did not make life easy for either of us. Eventually, he left, leaving me to care for theContinue reading “Eh, change your outlook.”

Killing it! (Or: a very good day.)

That’s what I’m talking about! Heck yes. I went back to the gym this evening and burned 300 more calories at the treadmill. I got a second wind! Who knew that would happen? Go me! It’s been a great day. I got an email stating that there would be no contest results until this timeContinue reading “Killing it! (Or: a very good day.)”

There’s a reason we call them “private parts”.

Dear Amy: My wife’s best friend recently went through a period where she was unhappy in her marriage. She began sexting with willing male partners and then sharing some of the pictures she had received with my wife. I know about this because my wife asked me to fix the WiFi on her phone. WhileContinue reading “There’s a reason we call them “private parts”.”

Oh, Annie Lane!

I really feel sorry for Annie Lane. Her advice column is sort of… horrible. This is what she’s been doing lately: she’ll have a letter that seems to deal with deep issues, but then at the last minute, the question asked is a commonsense question that anyone could answer. Here’s an example I made up:Continue reading “Oh, Annie Lane!”

Medic, we have incoming!

Dear Annie: I found out a month ago that my wife has been sleeping with a plethora of men that she’s met on a dating app. Her profile says she’s single and that she also has a college degree, neither of which is true. She told me she is in love with another man. AfterContinue reading “Medic, we have incoming!”

What’s in a name? That which we call a rose…

DEAR MISS MANNERS: How does one deal with false modesty? I found myself caught flat-footed when chatting with a textile artist. I joked that he could be the one to help me with my blanket stitch, and he responded that his handwork wasn’t very good. Fine; I’d been mostly kidding anyway. But then he wentContinue reading “What’s in a name? That which we call a rose…”

Meg’s mom tries to talk to her about sex: another piece of the puzzle.

DEAR ABBY: I am an out-and-proud lesbian who recently celebrated 10 years as a couple and three years of marriage to my wife. I worked as a professional nanny for many years, and I’m still extremely close to the first family I worked for. Although we have known each other for years, they still askContinue reading “Meg’s mom tries to talk to her about sex: another piece of the puzzle.”

An Anne Shirley style overreaction.

DEAR HARRIETTE: My ex-husband’s new wife completely crossed the line with me the other day. She took my daughter to get her hair “trimmed” and brought her back with about 4 inches of her real, natural hair cut off. My daughter insists that she wanted her hair short, but as you can imagine, I wasContinue reading “An Anne Shirley style overreaction.”

The ghosts of friends past.

Dear Amy: I really identified with the letter from “Ghosted by a Friend,” in fact, I thought that letter could be about me, because I’m the one who does this to others. I can cut people out of my life, (work or personal), in a heartbeat. It’s a learned behavior from my parents. My siblingContinue reading “The ghosts of friends past.”

Naughty!

I can’t tell you all how much I’ve enjoyed writing my new series, Naughty Isle. I’m on volume 2, and I’ve written 5,000+ words for it since I started the doc three days ago. It’s total fantasy fulfillment. Naughty fiction… who knew? But it’s just so loving, ya know? It’s adult, consensual (in a heavilyContinue reading “Naughty!”
