Dr Phil is kinda cool (don’t walk away yet) ;)

Confession time! I watch Dr Phil. There.  I said it. And I’m not ashamed. He’s not that bad! I know what most of you are thinking: “OMG.” I know.  I thought so, too.  I thought, ugh, daytime TV.  Talk about lowest common denominator and all that!  Never.  Ever.  Just–no. I assumed that it was for … More Dr Phil is kinda cool (don’t walk away yet) 😉

I wrote this on my cell phone (in the iPhone’s Notes app) while dozing off on the plane ride home on Saturday night.  I thought it was kinda funny and maybe even a little interesting, so I’ll share it with y’all… 😉 So I’m buzzed on Benadryl on a plane.   It’s an awesome way … More Comfortably numb [this is my child-free brain on Benadryl; any questions?]
