I’m Totally Coming Back As A Man In My Next Life

I have a sad story to tell. I don’t know the statistics, but I’m guessing just about every woman with a vagina will suffer from the ailment of which I am about to speak of.

I received a comment from an older woman. Her name is Marcie. She told me about her friend. Her name is Bonnie.

They are both on the other side of menopause. Which means they are dryer than a prune on the equator. READ MORE

  • Crap Jobs and Big Girl Pants

    In my 27+ years of living, I have had my fair share of crap jobs… At the ripe age of 15, I was a roller girl at Sonic Drive-In. The entire 2 months I held this job, I was scared for my life. I would strap on my roller skates each day ...

    Other Than THAT, I Had A Really Nice Time

    Tomorrow, someone will ask me about the recent trip I took to visit my sister and her six-month-old twin boys in Houston, and I will say, “Oh my god, what a nightmare,” and I will proceed to explain in excruciating and somewhat exaggerated detail how I was forced to check my carry-on bag on the first leg of the flight, thus losing critical access to a sweater and a pair of old sneakers, (albeit briefly) and how the airline then lost my luggage (also briefly) upon arrival. I’ll lament how I was without my toiletry bag for most of the evening and compelled to use my sister’s face wash, which upon inspection, contained ingredients that may or may not have had the potential to irritate my skin.

    An Open Letter To The Creators Of Frozen

    Dear Frozen,

    My daughter can’t quit you and that’s a big problem for me. You see, ever since you came out, all she wants to do is dress up in princess attire, watch your movie, and talk about Elsa and Anna. My sister even bought her this Anna doll that is motion activated. It comes on whenever anyone is within 96 miles. Our cats set it off nightly and not even locking it inside a trunk is enough to keep it quiet. It’s like a less psychotic but somehow more annoying version of Chucky. On a completely related note, my sister and I are now estranged. READ MORE

    Breast Is Best… But What About The Rest?

    I’ve hated my boobs since 5th grade, when they made a most unwelcome appearance. Backyard football with the boys became awkward. So did locker room changes. As they became a focal point of my high school figure, I despised them even more. My back hurt when I ran. Forget horsing around in a bathing suit. Rude and humiliating jokes from teenage boys.

    Hated. Them. READ MORE
