How’s your skin?

Without a doubt, conversations with both my mother and grandmother include these three questions: 1. How’s Mike? 2. How’s work? 3. How’s your skin?

Aren’t you hot?

Aren’t you hot?

In a moment of pure craziness in May, I joined the company volleyball team. I was new, I was excited, I wanted to meet people in the company. Bad idea. Playing on the 8th grade team does not make me a good volleyball player. But to be fair to myself, my clients and my workload … Continue reading
