I Am A Trovert

I recently sat next to someone in a group that was NOT Introverts Anonymous who introduced herself like this: “Hi, I am Sally and I’m an introvert.” Her name isn’t Sally, I made that up.  Also, that turned out not to be the most interesting thing about her. There has been a lot of buzz on […]

We’re Like Family

16 Jul

I mustache you a question… [Photo: barnorama.com] One of the things I always told clients I like about the large company I (sort of technically don’t) work for is that our meetings always feel like a big family reunion.  In a big room, you might not know everyone, but you know someone who brought them […]

Back to School

mommies

I signed up for a local early childhood and family ed program today.  I’ve had one experience, so far, with meeting some “other mommies.”  There was crafting.  It made me want to stick a pair of pliers into my left eye.  And then the right one. Their outfits were not this cute. So I have […]

I Have A Disability

facepalm

Everything is a disability these days, amirite? I get it, life is hard.  I have volunteered with the Special Olympics, and those are some amazing folks.  But all the disabilities?  It’s like saying everyone is unique.  Or everyone is a winner.  At a certain point, we are ALL disabled and it all sort of loses its […]

Directions?

29 Mar

lost

As long as I’m not going to be late for something, I kind of like getting lost.  You get to see new things, and you get to figure your way out of whatever you’ve gotten into.  It’s fun!  Try it sometime! I have a general disregard for “directions” and “instructions” and “other people’s ideas.”  Okay, […]

Do You Think You Can Handle This?

As I mentioned, I managed to do all our weekly budgeted grocery shopping at fancy pants places last weekend.  One of the things I bought was a chicken.  A whole one.  I’ve never cooked one before.  It seems like a good thing to cook for supper, you know, for your family.  Warm.  Wholesome.  Made with […]

Getting Carded and Traveling Mit Bebe

14 Jan

Who would be offended?? I didn’t realize that I had hit the age where there were men for whom I am too old.  There was a new bartender at my regular bar (which I’m hardly ever inside of anymore, which could possibly have been my first clue) and I asked one of the guys how […]

How This Blog Got Its Name

28 Nov

Maladroit is one of the best words ever invented.  It means unskillful, awkward, bungling, tactless.  I think the bungling is my favorite part.  It’s also the name of a Weezer album, but I’m not really into them. My mom and I are in the habit of video chatting via my love, the gmail.  We are […]

Help… I’ve Fallen and I Can’t Get Up…

23 Aug

help

I never thought this lady was that convincing… nevermind that she’s barely 60.  Anyway… I’m not big into new year’s resolutions, but every year I usually have some kind of vague goal.  There has been “The Year of Fitness.”  More than a few times, I’ve celebrated “The Year of the Dollar.”  In my later 20s […]
