Please no sorries, just give me your dopamine.
First you cry, then you gulp down a valium, and then you say fuck you to the Parkinson’s Disease you’ve been handed. And then you keep crying at any moment. Cooking, driving and food shopping, and when you’re trying to deci… Read full post »

A Facebook friend accused me of panhandling because I kept reposting my GoFundMe.com plea seeking financial help for my sick dog. Upset at the accusation from a man I had an interest in, I couldn’t stop staring at his words. The paragraph became a humiliating mess in front of me for… Read full post »

My dog had a seizure, and his heart stopped for a couple of seconds. It happened, tonight, as we were preparing to leave the Kingston Emergency Animal… Read full post »
December 25 update. Ferrell at doggie Er for the night. His calcium levels are dangerously low. He needs a miracle. And I need a miracle. My boy. And gofundme.com thank you everyone.
A plea for your help...

I sold ammo for Walmart, all along thinking “Bonnie, it’s just a paycheck.” I’m such a pathetic liar. But I needed that piece of paper to survive past due to paster due. As a forty something divorced mother with a college education and a thin res… Read full post »

I never understood why when I was growing up we didn’t hang Christmas lights outside our home. It wasn’t like we were the only Jews not doing it. There were plenty of us. When I was six years old, my mother married a Lutheran man who was the superintendent of a… Read full post »
The Vegetarian and the Deer Hunters, orginally, appeared on ModernLoveRejects.com. Hunting season will be starting soon up in these areas. I, a vegetarian, forgot "Trucks" had steak and ketchup breath when we kissed. How could I answer to Bambi? What would you have done?
Chocoholic update: This writer wins the stupid award for driving through downed trees she never saw during nature's horror show to get some chocolate.
