Standing Up Before Settling Down

I was a female Woody Allen -- self-deprecating, with mismatched features and glasses. So I couldn’t believe it when Andy, the 6’2", aqua-eyed comic in my stand-up class, flirted with me at a party. I’d only dreamed of him folding his large body over mine, like origami.“Want a smoke?” A dazzling smile lit his face.“Sure.”“I don’t smoke.”“Me neither.”...more

Finding love on the job

My son often tells me that when he grows up he wants to come and work at my job. He has plans to sit in the cube next to mine and be on my team. He also wants to help distribute candy when the team needs a little pick-me-up on rough days and have lunch with me every day....more

Procrastination Isn't All Bad

I've put off writing this post as long as I can.(1)The truth is, I've been a procrastinator all my life. The number of library books I've returned past their due date adds up to quite a sum in fines. I always tell myself that this isn't a character flaw, it's just a way of supporting the library with my funds as well as with my votes.(2)The one thing that I haven't been able to procrastinate about is worrying. As soon as worry niggles its way into my mind, there it is, taking up residence, and threatening to stay for the duration....more

The Courage to Call Off the Wedding

I met Ellen on a flight to New York. She had just called off her wedding, scheduled for Valentine’s Day. Ellen was in her late thirties. This would have been her second marriage.“It’s almost as complicated to call off the wedding as it is to put it together,” she said. “Strange how everyone seems to take my decision personally. My parents, my daughter, my friends and co-workers, all  trying to reassure me that it’s natural to feel nervous before your wedding. I wasn’t nervous. There were red flags, and I paid attention to them."...more

Love: If you're happy and you know it

“Aren’t you happy that I’m happy you’re home?”“Oh yeah. I’m happy,” Mr. T deadpans, without looking away from his computer screen.A few seconds go by.I watch as he then claps twice and gives me a curious little side-eye.A beat passes before I burst into laughter.Image used with permission....more

5 Tips for an Earth-Shattering Orgasm You HAVEN'T Already Tried

My mother used to say, “In a world that is largely focused on male pleasure — the female orgasm is an act of revolution.”Her words have even more resonance in today’s on-demand culture where porn (largely produced, directed, and watched by men) is sometimes the only sex education young men get....more

Dating God and Drinking Pretty Coffee

"I mean... God and I, we hang out all the time but we've never dated before." I uttered this comment in all seriousness but my sister-friend Yvette burst into girlish laughter, tickled by the thought of "dating God." It was an exciting but peculiar thought. I had only twice heard the mention of dating God....more
