Married Life Has Been Hard. Oh, And I Have Cancer.

Hey. It's been a while. That's the thing about a humour blog. It takes a really long time to find a clever, witty line to put after I have cancer and it's one of the worst possible kinds. And boy, are my arms tired! See what I mean? But here I am just the same, even if I haven't … Continue reading Married Life Has Been Hard. Oh, And I Have Cancer.

To Kane, Always

When you were little, you told me you wanted to be an astronaut and an architect when you grew up. I asked why two careers, and you explained that you really wanted to go to the moon but after you got there, you wanted to be able to build us each a home so we would always … Continue reading To Kane, Always

5 Reasons You Haven’t Seen Me In A While

You may be wondering why, after all our years of virtual friendship, I suddenly disappeared for over two months - no blogging, no visiting, no commenting and barely a Facebook status to be seen.

The need for physical contact was a constant presence; he would find himself searching out her hand as they walked or shifting his legs when they sat so that they mingled with hers. It seemed to him that her … Continue reading Evolution

For The Win

It took me a minute to realize my cell phone was ringing. I was enthusiastically crunching the results of some market research I’d been working on, turning them into pretty pie charts and listening to the story they tell about the great big world out there. And it is a fascinating story, full of twists … Continue reading For The Win

The Interrogation

How long had it been? He had tried to keep track in the beginning, counting the minutes, the hours, the days. But each time the cell door opened and the sessions began, the very nature of time mutated – minutes indistinguishable from hours, hours indistinguishable from days. Pain drove off coherent thought. The searing, unrelenting … Continue reading The Interrogation
