Hot off the success of my Chipotle rant (which became the second most viewed essay after only twenty-four hours; it’s actually the *most* read essay if we toss out the porn clickbait from April Fool’s/Fools’ Day), I've decided to do my best 10,000 Maniacs impersonation and “give ‘em what they want.” And folks, I'm rubbing … Continue reading Number Thirty-Two: The McDonald’s Drive-Thru (aka Fifty Feet of Hell)

However, you may not hear me speak them unless I know you well and feel comfortable in your presence, and … Continue reading Number Twenty-Three: I Am Introvert, Hear Me Mumble
