About Me

Who am I?  I’m just another writer.  I write how I speak.  Even though I have a BA in English, and even though I’ve been a teacher, and can red pen with the best of em, I don’t shrink from verbing my nouns, using a run-on for effect, or lettin it all slang out.
I’m a mother, but not your mother.  So when I judge you harshly, I won’t say it to your face, because I was not raised by wolves, nor has anyone died and made me queen.  Oh, but there’s time still!
I have fallen off my high horse a time or two, but it’s never stopped me from gettin right back up on it.

    Writing that is brutally truthful and yet still amusing. Hard to pull that one off…

    Hi ! I’m flattered that you visited, and that you’ll return to anecdotes from the overly sensitive nurse! When I grow up, I want to blog with the abandon that you do – love your site!

    What a delightful about me section! The “disgustingly blissful” phrase is bound to stick with me the next time someone asks about my marriage 😀

  16. I was a loud complainer when verb-ing nouns gained popularity. But I do it often, now! I justify it by showing my poetic license
