jbo_photo All easy, comfortable blood-donation conversation comes to a screeching halt when the male technician has to interrupt you as he is removing the needle with, "Oh! Sorry! I just squirted blood on your...crotch. Area. Shorts."
So you did, fella. So you did.

jbo_photo So often, I think of how much technology is interfering with our normal human interactions. It's truly a shame.
And then sometimes, my mom and aunt text me selfies wearing lampshades and plastic rain bonnets on their heads as they clean out my grandmother's storage unit...and I know in my guts that technology is GOOD.

jbo_photo "Mom...Mom!" Parker whispered urgently in my ear as we waited for the fireworks to begin. "I think someone put BEER in my Coke float!"
A quick taste test confirmed that, yes, my son's dessert confection had been spiked...with Gentleman Jack Daniels.
Meanwhile, a few chairs down, my stepmother sipped a notably virgin Coca-Cola.
It was a blue cup mix-up at its finest! Thanks for the laughs, America.

jbo_photo Thunderstorm and firework hysteria brought this terrified, muddy, shivering creature into my front yard.
Trying to find the owner, but enjoying the excuse to snuggle something indoors and escape the auditory assault.

"Why?"
