This is the best freshly pressed post I’ve read. Your post brightened my day and made me laugh.

Thank you for daring to say what so many of us are thinking . . .

Kristen, enough of this . . . write a book on it, get on talk shows and especially, “O’Reilly. You can make a mint and then you can go back to Starbucks….”

This college student read, laughed, and followed.

I laughed. I cried. Thank you for sharing your touching story.

This is so freaking funny. Had to close my office door midway, so people would not see me laughing like crazy. Very good!

I loved your Washington Post op-ed … and I’m picking it up to run it in Newsday tomorrow. Thanks!
-Alleen Barber, Deputy Editorial Page Editor, Newsday
Your article not only made me laugh, but it probably saved my hair – and my sanity.

I always wait with great anticipation for your closing line. I am always so tempted to quickly scroll to the end, but I know I will enjoy it even more by taking in all the nuances along the way – you know, I need to relax and “just enjoy it.” You are ever hilarious!

. . . thanks for differentiating between the writers strike and the AMPTP’s refusal to negotiate. . . coming from you, and in the pages of a respected paper like The Washington Post, it seems to carry more credibility.
-Bill Fordes, Co-Executive Producer, LAW&ORDER
I read your article and I have only one question to ask you: Don’t you have cable? Or are you another one of those idiotic dumbasses living in a time warp and still watching T.V. with an antenna?

…my backstabbing cousin Jennifer – that made me giggle audibly! Well done.

Outrageous! If this fruit is available anywhere near Marin County, I will pick it up with pleasure. What a crime to let it go to waste!

. . . maybe Ms. Hansen Brakeman is the problem and not the multitude of contractors.

Hilarious and so true!
I usually don’t post in Blogs but your blog forced me to, amazing work.. beautiful …
Your blog is truly refreshing! Enjoying it very much! Very creative thoughts here. Thank you!
Found you through Freshing Pressed, you are a breath of fresh air 🙂
Thanks so much!
your article on the “economic slowdown” ( Have a belt during belt- tightening) had me in stitches. 😀
Although the article was tongue in cheek its ending, concluding that it is our duty to spend to keep our economies afloat is a sound one. NOT ON CREDIT THOUGH!!! 🙂
Thanks Mick – we’ve done our part that’s for sure – slurp, hiccup!
Thanks for the brilliantly incisive and timely perspective. You’ve nailed it – with one important and glaring error: your take on men being addressed as “Sir” as a form of “respect” for men. Nonsense! We males of the species empathize with your pain completely and for the exact same reasons! Our transition from youth to decrepitude is just as sudden, unexpected and degrading as yours. I am not your father, young checkout person, nor am I your commanding officer, your superior, or knight-of-the-realm Paul McCartney! In fact, this country was established precisely to protest the trappings of royalty. Don’t call me “Sir”… M’Lady!
Hah! I wouldn’t dare! Thank you . . . dude!
Poor Chopper… He died among strangers with no family around….. You and your family suck…..
