Featured community question wherein Jon makes his mother proud

Today’s featured question comes from user dirtdiva321: I figured this was an appropriate question given that Jon and I eloped on a cliff at Yosemite eight years ago this week, and that Monday morning we were sitting together on a couch across from our therapist. I like to compare her to a chiropractor: we see [...]

Instant understanding

In addition to what seems like a hundred million unforeseen costs of moving into this house, we had to buy a new dishwasher this week. The original one was very picky about which dishes it wanted to clean, and sometimes it wouldn’t choose any. Like that one time we had 35 family members over for [...]

Risky business

Jon: Do you know how badly I’d love to buy your stepfather’s motorcycle? Me: No. Never. Not gonna happen. NUH. UH. Jon: But I’d just use it for fun— Me: Jon, you know I love you, right? Jon: Of course. Me: That’s first on the list. Second, you’re my soul mate. Jon: What has this [...]

Featured community question that my father should just go ahead and skip

Today’s featured question comes yet again from user Brookelyn Bridge, mainly because it is so timely for me: I’ve mentioned my friend Kate before (and no, this is not going to be a post about my lesbian fantasies, I gave those up when I realized that I really, really like penises), and she has this [...]

Observations on in-laws

Me: I thought you understood going into this that we’re a glass half empty kind of family. Jon. No, no, no, no, no. Me: Why are you shaking your head like that? Jon: Because I did think you guys were glass half empty people, when in reality all of you are THE GLASS IS TOTALLY [...]

When anything bad happens, I blame Apple

It’s no surprise to anyone that Jon pre-ordered an iPad the moment it was announced that they would be available. Last week it arrived, and I haven’t seen him since. I am not kidding. You think I am exaggerating. I do that a lot, yes, I will admit to dabbling in that practice from time [...]

After waking up to eight inches of snow on the ground

Jon: This had better be the last storm of the season, so help me God. Me: Did you really just say that out loud? Way to tempt the Universe, JON. Jon: Heather, it’s all about creating the outcome we want by putting the right energy out there. You watch Oprah. You know this. That’s what [...]

Just another beautiful day

So last week we took a quick trip to LA to get some business done, and I know that sounds vague, come on, what is up? It’s not something I can talk about just yet, although we did tell Leta that we were going to see the leprechauns. And we were going to ask them [...]

Exhibit A

I just want to point out that I’m paying attention, UNIVERSE. And that by stubbing my foot on one of Marlo’s more hefty toys last night and breaking the third toe on my right foot was your way of saying WOMAN. WAS YOUR TAILBONE NOT LOUD ENOUGH. So what you’re saying is that I have [...]

Featured community question with yet another reason for couple’s therapy

Today’s featured question comes from user KA (yes, I know one of this member’s questions has been featured before, but I happened to read this one right after a certain encounter, and hell, this member asks great questions): We’ll get to that certain encounter, but first, no matter what my mood, no matter if the [...]
