I Was the Victim of a Crime, Sort of, Not Really, It’s Mostly True

So, weird stuff always happens to me. As an introvert, private rule follower, and overall quiet person you would think it would be just the opposite…a quiet life. It was high noon on a crisp fall day a couple of short years ago. I decided to drive through McDonald’s for a health drink (Large DDP) on my way back to the office. However, at the ripe old’ age of 32, I felt the urge to visit the little boy’s room....

Is the Easter Bunny Real?

Two Easter mornings ago I was thrown into an extremely tense situation… We cranked off the morning with Easter baskets, pastels, and sugar free candy (that’s a lie, there was tons of sugar). Things got real right out of the gate…. Davis: Is the Easter Bunny real? Me: Ask your mother? Just kidding, just kidding. Me: (Really, after a telepathic conversation with Amanda): Well…these are from Mommy and Daddy and… Davis interrupts: Good, that would be weird. Me (thinking): That...

Let’s Play Some NintendOLD!

Davis, Clara, and I got out my original Nintendo over the weekend and hooked it up. Davis saw it in a drawer and has wanted to give it a whirl for a while now. What could go wrong? Nothing, that’s what. Davis gets to play video games every now and then and is really good, like excessively good, especially at Mariokart. He’s good enough that I have had to use alternative means to secure victory for myself a few times...

A Not So Simple Act Of Kindness

This morning on my way to work I stopped for a delicious breakfast sandwich at the local health food drive-thru. After pulling up to window number one with my money ready for payment, the smiling cashier informed me that my meal was paid for by the kind woman two cars ahead. But, why? What was her angle? Was she just nice? No one is nice anymore, right? So, not to be “out-niced” by this generous person I quickly and way...

The Perfect Diet…er.

I have been eating pretty well over the last couple of months. This week I decided it was time to take things up a notch. I have had some success losing weight, but have plateaued a bit. I feel like if I really lock in, I will look like a svelte young Danny Devito in no time. That said, I have some observations from the past two days of following the “Super Awesome Clean Healthy Eating Plan to Have a...

It’s Monday and I Smell Grilled Cheese

I am at work waiting for a large file to upload. I was flipping through my phone to pass the time and saw a video on social media of someone making a grilled cheese. I “accidentally” clicked on it and watched the short video. Moments later…back at work in my office, which has no stove or pans or cheese or bread…I began to smell a freshly made grilled cheese. This isn’t a joke, people. This is my life. I don’t...

I was a Runner – A Three Week Anthology

A Plea for Running Advice All great things start with a step. And when you decide to take a step, whether it be small or large, it’s always smart to lean on those who have taken that step before you. Not long ago I developed a small interest in becoming a runner. I know…I know…”But Adam, you are already a finely tuned machine and SO in shape”. My question was very simple. Is there any beginner tips I should be...
