Ok, I admit it. I perjured in a court of law. It was after I ran over a guy. It was in 1985 or 86. I forget. I was 17 or 18. I remember it was raining. I remember the car spinning. I remember I went through a windshield. Supposedly when you go through a… Continue Reading

Then they told me I had to either take a 50% pay cut or I would be fired. If I was fired they would give me severance. I didn’t like either choice. I had responsibilities. I was counting on the money. I was scared. I wasn’t expecting this. HR said, “I have to legally tell… Continue Reading

Have you ever tried to achieve a Buddha like level of enlightenment? I tried once and lasted less than 24 hours. Too many other distractions were getting in the way, like my work commitments and a real estate purchase I was trying to close. Unfortunately, a true state of enlightenment requires a level of concentration… Continue Reading

After my dad went into a permanent coma I had to take his car back to the dealership and hand them the keys. They wanted to know what happened and I couldn’t talk. I couldn’t sign papers. I was shaking. I held out the keys and they took them. I walked out. My dad was… Continue Reading

When I was ten I wanted to be an astronaut, a writer, a spy, a superhero, and an advice columnist. I wrote a play. I did spy on people. But I couldn’t figure out how to be a superhero. I read collected columns of “Dear Abby” (an advice columnist) every day. The only advice I… Continue Reading

I used to love my job. Love it. I worked for my favorite entertainment company in the world. I would’ve paid to work there. I made friends at work. And on weekends we’d even get together and play poker. Sometimes we’d even travel on vacations together. My boss would yell at me but I could… Continue Reading

Pierre Levegh killed 88 people in a car race. Even I am not that bad a driver. I’ve only almost killed one person. Maybe two. Pierre tried to get ahead of the Aston Martin in front of his Mercedes, made a sharp turn, flew into a wall, exploded, pieces flying everywhere, his skull crushed on… Continue Reading

I can’t believe how I’ve gotten away with what I’ve gotten away with even though I’m so stupid. I was having a weird argument yesterday with my ex-wife. I was trying to say, “I’m stupid” so she was disagreeing and accusing me of lying. So I kept insisting. “I got bad grades all through high… Continue Reading

“I hate everyone I work with,” I told my astrologer / therapist. “I feel like everything I say is fake just so people can like me.” I had clients calling me at 4 in the morning asking for advice. Then they would forget to pay their bills. Years later I was calling new clients in… Continue Reading

I feel I need to make a post about this. Tell a story. Make it poignant. But it’s really all I want to say: Get. Keep. Grow. It’s really hard to do those three things. It’s three different skills. Like with money. Getting it. Keeping it. Growing it. I’ve succeeded and failed at all three.… Continue Reading
