The Art of Dating – Finding a Wingman

If you like someone, how do you drop the hint? In the Bible, God calls men to pursue and women to sit and wait to be traded for livestock. In today’s day and age, livestock can be hard to come by, so women are basically stuck waiting. According to Proverbs

Scars From Our Unwelcome Loss

Why haven’t I been actively blogging the last few months? I could go with the I-have-a-full-time-job excuse or I could say I haven’t had a crazy life experience to share worth writing about. While those excuses may be true, they aren’t the real reason behind my lack of blogs. The

The Impatient Stranger at Fry’s Owes Me $6
