Love in the Time of Corona: Night Terror

Yesterday was not a good day. I thought that being able smell new things would be good for my appetite, but it had the opposite effect. I made chicken thighs in a ginger, honey, soy marinade with rice and bok choy but the smell of it completely turned me off. Add to it some bullshit […]

COVID Update: One Week

It has been one week since I suspected I was sick with COVID, a relevant distinction given that “onset of symptoms” dictates my isolation period. That means I have three more days. I have questions, though. Questions I will ask of my caseworker at the Boulder Heath Department, a very nice lady. How am I […]

Love in the Time of Corona: Literally

So the other day I was hanging out on the couch with Chief and, as I like to do, I grabbed his paw and took a whiff. I happen to love the way his paws smell, like corn chips. I was feeling a little under the weather and thought that would cheer me up. Oddly […]

2020: The Year of Camping

I have been camping more this year than any I can remember, not because I love it so much but because it seems to be the only thing to do these days. And because Casey is so into it right now. I wouldn’t need a job if I had a dollar for every time I’ve […]
