Everyone, well a lot of people, think their life is an epic story or a fairytale, one that needs to be told about. Especially nowadays, people want to share their life in glossy detail with everyone around them. I think of myself a little differently. I don’t want to tell this “epic life story.” But I feel a need, an instinct, a desire, to share my plain old stories – the moments that we don’t talk about because well…they aren’t always glamorous, or transforming, or heart wrenching. Not to say those stories don’t need to be told or that my stories won’t have hints of these things. Hopefully some of what I write will speak to you, make you laugh, make you cringe, make you roll your eyes, and make you realize the truth – that all we humans are just trying to camouflage our awkward attempts to lead comfortable lives. Let’s just say some of us are better at hiding it than others.
