Stories without recipes

Feelin' Itchy

To find out about the book I'm writing for Algonquin Books, go here.

If you'd like to receive (infrequent and very short) e-mails when I have pieces on npr.org, sign up here.

New post up every Wednesday. Recipes coming soon (been a little busy this week). Thanks for stopping by.




When the good news is, Its only dandruff;

When you realize you actually are descended from apes;

When the broken finger is all but forgotten;

When no ones allowed to sit on the couch;

When you have 25 people coming over for dinner the next day;

When OCD seems like a sign of good character;

When you start cursing as you approach your childrens deceptively innocent elementary school;

When your husband wants to document the three of you looking like that;

Youve got lice!
