Whoever Invented Underwire Hated Women…And I Had The Rash To Prove It

If you peeked into my underwear drawer you would find exactly one wired bra, but it’s the one bra I refuse to wear. The only time I put that thing on is in the case of an end-of-the-world emergency, like when all my other bras are in the laundry and I don’t want to venture outside …

Why I’m Afraid Of Donating Blood (And It’s Not Because Of The Needles!)

The last time I stepped onto a blood donation bus, I thought I was going to have a panic attack. My heart was pounding. I started hyperventilating. My palms were sweating. I just couldn’t go through with it. I gave the lady my forms, told her I had changed my mind and left. I felt …

That Time A Mosquito Made My Ear Look Like Quasimodo

I had no idea that mosquitoes were back. I never got that newsletter, that email, that breaking news alert that they had returned, apparently in droves, to Central Florida. I wish I had known that they were back, because then I never would have gone outside at dusk. I have my mother to thank for …

Three Times That Prove Gravity Is Out To Get Me

Gravity and I aren’t on the best of terms. We’ve had an ongoing battle for most of my life. And just when I think I’ve got the upper hand, gravity makes an appearance. Usually this happens at the worst possible moment – like the time I face-planted (totally not my fault!) onto the pavement in …
