After spending five minutes yanking white hairs out of my head, I’m starting to think my window for having kids has closed. It’s not so much that I’m old; it’s just that if I can spend that long staring at myself in the mirror, I’m certainly too self-absorbed to pay attention to another person 24 … Continue reading
Gold medal: Rummaging through your rag bin and finding a perfectly good shirt that you tossed in there two years ago because you decided it looked bad on you. The good news: you were wrong.

Gene: “I want to make those chicken things for dinner tonight.” Kris: “Wait, the ones that were frozen and then thawed and then you put them back in the freezer?
