Mommy Loves Best — Humor Therapy

To Hell and Back

Humor Therapy — My Dating Life is Disabled

Humor Therapy — Calling Them Out

I’m really starting to believe I’m a very popular person. I must get twenty calls a day. My phone has never rung so much in my life. I used to get excited when the phone rang. Maybe it was an old friend I hadn’t talked to in years; or an ex-girlfriend realizing her mistake ... Read more

Humor Therapy — Who Needs People?

We are quickly becoming an anti-socializing world. Talking to each other has now become a major burden. I don’t believe it’s because we have become boring, people have always been boring.

Humor Therapy — Plane Sick

Well, it has happened again. Every year I get a head cold that lasts for, maybe, a week or so. It usually occurs when I travel for the holidays. It could be stress related, but I think the culprit is being cooped up in a plane with a bunch of germ-infested human beings. Aren’t ... Read more

Camelrot — King Artie and the Legend: Finally the End

Humor — Maybe You Can Talk to Me

Dinner Time
