dude Tale – What a man

There is one very important man in my life these days. Mr. Boscorelli. For those of you whom don’t know him personally, he usually goes by Bocso for short. While he is generally a very good companion, he does have some, shall we say, distasteful habits. I mean he really can be a Rude Dude. For one thing, he kisses …

no apology Tale – RSVP

After remaining with my Dr. for 12 years, being loyal despite distance, despite her transition to a new office where I faced crappy service, not to mention torture by Chewbacca the oh-so-hairy-scary Medical Assistant, I finally had to move on after my LAB results were LOST after more than 10 days of being sick. I was actually feeling …

drug Tale – I’m not Normal, so What?

“I’m not normal.” I actually used this line when trying to dissuade a man who was very actively pursuing me while I was 9 months pregnant with my ex’s baby. It didn’t work. He responded, “That’s ok, because I’m not normal either.” I ended up marrying him a year and a half later. Alas, another Tale for another time. …

Well, last year I finally decided to get myself a DVR,  then during my four weeks of Medical Leave …

sisterly Tale – The Princess and her lady-in-waiting

As I’ve mentioned before, my daughters are three years and two months apart to the day. Impeccable timing on my part so I’ve been told. While they were inseparable as small children, my older daughter now 20, grew to a become Princess (yes somehow I managed to do so without the Castle) and my younger daughter, well, became her lady-in-waiting.  In fact, my …

short patience Tale – Approach with caution

Typically before I go to bed at night I reflect upon my day. Hey I know I am not perfect, and it’s definitely no cake-walk being Mom to very busy children while juggling a career. Yet I do try my very best to model my most revered super-hero… Wonder Woman. So at the end of each day, I don’t usually feel too bad about myself. Not last night though. Before I lay …
