FRRRRRRRRRR ew ra ho ba. (<—no idea.) I’ve been saying “crud” a lot lately. CRUD. Like when a coupon expires or when you run out of Metamucil. “Well crud!” Actually, it started a good bit before Corona. Back in February. Who says crud, though? I mean, my mom says crud. She says dern, too. “Well […]

Frrrrrrrrroodoo. WEEK TWO. We’ve been home for two weeks. (sans two grocery store runs dressed in hazmat suits.) And you know, I think I’m starting to adjust. Everywhere I look lately I read the words “new normal” – and that’s just it. It’s a new normal, and in that there’s this odd sense of peace […]

Between school closures (for the rest of the year, omg), restaurants reduced to curbside only, and the news becoming grimmer and grimmer by the hour, the whole world just bottomed out, didn’t it? You know this already, I’m not here to magnify the negative. But I DID want to check […]

Fri….day. Hey. Well, it’s just impossible for me to sit here at my laptop on this eerie Friday morning and pretend to churn out goofy stories about ankle socks or nose hair clippers when the whole world is being flipped upside down like it is.

Have you ever noticed how any business offices you call – no matter if it’s the doctor’s office, home improvement store, toenail repair shop – EVERYONE’S MENU HAS CHANGED? “Please listen carefully, as our menu has changed.” Why did […]

Fralemtime’s Fray! (just kidding don’t delete me from your life.) OKAY. (you’re like, oh no.) I want to ask you something serious, and I need to you mentally and emotionally prepare yourself for it.

FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFrooloobooboo. Who came up with “selling like hotcakes?” And what exactly are hotcakes? Are we talking about pancakes here? Like a pancake breakfast? Like a Saturday morning pancake breakfast at the high school gym? I realize I could look this up, but you’re cuter. Well I’ve got some thoughts on this. (shocker, I know.) Why […]
