These days, it’s easy enough for me to fry up, boil, or even poach an egg. I can’t be doing much else, mind you, while I’m making breakfast because I have trouble managing multiple tasks simultaneously. This results in poor timing and cold toast.
One-million-year-old teeth were found in Siberia. They are from a mammoth who, presumably, didn’t floss daily or visit a dentist even once in its life. To suggest that any animal from the Pleistocene epoch had any sort of dental hygiene regiment is laughable. But, still, their teeth survived. Whenever I go to a dentist’s office,… Continue reading An Unexpectedly Exciting Visit to the Dentist
I recently picked up a copy of Sketch for a Theory of the Emotions by Jean-Paul Sartre, a book I’ve been meaning to read for a while. Reading philosophy is a lot harder than I remember it being.

Eventually, the water level gets high enough to spill over the little inset portion of the sink. Whenever that happens, I take a minute to… Continue reading Filling the Sink with Water
It happens nearly every time I sit down at my desk to do some work. It won’t take five minutes for Riel to jump up on my desk, take a quick scan, and then lay down directly on top of whatever I’m working on. Even if I’m sitting on my recliner staring at my iPad… Continue reading Riel is Teaching Me About Work-Life Balance
