A cut above

Let’s be honest – when you have a bandage anywhere on your head, people REALLY want to ask you what it’s about.

Bandages other places? Usually, no big deal. One on your knee? Obviously just a scuff from a fall. Back of the heel? Duh, blister. But prominently on your ear? Yeah, curiosity is coming out on that one.


Along came a spider

My wife is a very patient person. Exhibit A: She has been married to me for more than two decades.

Generally, if you present my wife with a challenge, she will tackle it in a cool and calm approach. That said, put her in a car and have a spider appear on her head, and cool and calm quickly leave town.
