Week in Review (February 12, 2016)


I had originally written an 800 word rant about Valentine’s Day that transitioned into a minor thinkpiece on weddings and marriage that was supposed to go here, but when I read it a second time, it was so preachy and defensive and just plain awful. I couldn’t delete it fast enough.

So, I’ll just say that I hope your V-Day is happy and fulfilling, regardless of what you do, whether it’s getting a table at the toughest reservation in America or ordering Chinese takeout and watching a Kevin Smith film (which is what we’ll be doing, just like we did our first year together).

Here’s what I wrote this week:




We are most alive when we’re in love.

– John Updike

Happy Valentines Day!
