The other day my son jumped off a play structure and hit himself in his own face with his knee. It hurt and he was upset. When he recovered and stopped crying a few minutes later I decided to tell him a story that might cheer him up. I told him the tale of how […]

Film Nerdiness: Mirrors

This post has nothing to do with writing. I am just indulging my inner film nerd with a random post about scenes in movies that involve mirrors. I watched Wanderlust the other day and one of the best scenes involves Paul Rudd going off the deep end talking about his dick. It’s a scene that […]
