Lacking Creativity

I don’t really know what to write about today. I promised myself I’d write a blog post once a week, just to get the creative juices flowing, but I feel like I’ve hit a wall. I’m only two sentences into this post and I already have no idea what to put next! I could talk …

Always Arguing

I feel like I get into the weirdest arguments with people, for some reason. Is it my personality? Is it my face? Something about me just begs people to walk up to me and give their strong opinion on something. For example, this morning I was leaving my hotel on Middle Street when a bald …

Natural Chef

Do you enjoy cooking, or would you prefer someone else to do it for you? I’m asking around about this because I have a theory I’d like to conduct an amateur survey on. Don’t worry, it’s not one of those ‘two types of people’ concepts… well, not exactly, anyway. It’s a bit hard to explain …

Distance makes the heart grow fonder, right? So maybe that distance between property ownership and the status quo somehow makes the whole …

Frustrated Chamberlain

I can’t believe that King Josiah approved this project without consulting me first. I’m his chamberlain, his majordomo, his go-to for all household needs! I’ve been serving in his position for twenty years now and I still get no respect. If King Josiah had bothered to check with me I could have told him that …

Butter Not Go There

My brother, Ted, won’t shut up about his latest obsession: ketogenic eating. I’ve told him numerous times that I don’t want to hear about his nutritional exploits, especially if they’re informed by something he heard on a podcast. It’s not that I flat-out don’t care; it’s just that I don’t have time to be regaled …
