Car Toon

As busy as my staff is here at MidWeek, I always try to find ways to lighten things up. One way is to feed them. The other week, one of my editors was doing a story on a new ice cream shop. It’s located in Kakaako near our offices, and they make their ice cream […]

Of Mice And Men

So the other morning I was going to blend myself a protein shake for breakfast. One of the ingredients I throw in is a banana. I went to grab one from the bunch in a bowl on our kitchen table. That’s when I noticed that one of the bananas looked as though something had gnawed […]

Drop In The Bucket

Although the weather really sucked with the passing of Hurricane Ana, the good news is no one was seriously hurt. Still, there was a lot of rain and flooding, so no one really came away from it unscathed. I know my family didn’t, and let me tell you why. No question that, in my house, […]

Hello Dolly!

I may have mentioned that several weeks ago my wife’s family was in town. That included her 7-year-old niece. For the most part, she hung out with our 17-year-old daughter, who is really great with kids. Our daughter brought out her old dolls for her to play with, including a collectible American Girl doll. The […]

Wet Blanket

The other evening, as my wife and I headed for bed, she paused and asked me where Buddy’s blanket was. First of all, with the hot and humid weather we’ve been having, like, forever, the word blanket doesn’t exist in my vocabulary. I asked, “What?” She replied, “What did you do with Buddy’s blanket?” This […]

In The Moment

I would like to commission some doctors and scientists to do a study on the way my wife thinks. The problem with that is I don’t have a billion dollars to pay for it. I mean, the way my wife thinks is so complex that it might be easier and cheaper to build a time […]

Breakfast Of Champions

I have to say that perhaps my most-favorite meal of the day is breakfast. Maybe because it is a meal that celebrates that I’m still alive another day or the fact that I’m hungry, since my last meal was at least 12 hours before I arose from sleep. Everything I’ve seen and read lately says […]

Special Delivery

People who read my column often ask me if I have to get permission before I write things. The answer is yes, I have to get permission from my boss — not my boss here at work, but my boss at home. You’d think that would be my wife, but lately my boss has been […]

Sweat Shop

I recently celebrated my 56th birthday. Right, I celebrate fiber. Seriously, lately I’ve really been feeling older than my age although my body feels like that of a teenager. In other words, it doesn’t do what I tell it to do. One morning, I looked in a mirror and decided I needed to slow down […]

All Washed Up

Man, I had a pretty busy weekend the other week. And by busy, I mean I was inundated with chores that had to do with washing stuff. Not talking about washing clothes, as my wife really doesn’t like me messing with the laundry. I get out of that because the few times when I have […]
