The largest collection of people with questionable parking skills clearly held a convention in Houston this week. The worst of the worst collectively gathered in the parking garage at St Luke’s Hospital. Chels and I took zero pleasure in seeing them receive parking citations. (I’m totally lying. Those asshats deserved it!) Houston lacks drainage. Drainage wouldn’t help fix the larger problem of crappy drivers. Traffic … Continue reading Tales From The Road
Two days ago I flew to New York. This is nothing new. I don’t live here, but I visit. It’s my happy place. I was happy that I had enough points to book a flight.

I admitted that I had not. “Oh my God, you HAVE to watch it! It … Continue reading More Than
We take off in the pouring rain. Northern remnants of a tropical depression that flooded Houston just yesterday. I silently curse the clouds. Lifting above the storm, my mind wanders back to when I first met you. I think I was at my most damaged. Even though there was plenty of harm yet to be done, I was already a mess. Am I better now? … Continue reading Untitled
