Episode 6: Ricky Tango, Jr. Becomes a Man
I was ten years old the day I became a man. I was out under the pecan tree eating porridge from my favorite armadillo shell when I heard Momma scream. I ran as fast as my 8-year-old legs could carry me (my legs have always been late bloomers) and came upon a horrific sight. Momma had been sucked into the combine. Poppa was there trying to pull her out, but ended up ripping the scalp right off her head. I don’t know why he was pulling her by the hair instead of her arms. Grown-ups can be peculiar I learned that day.

Episode 5: I’m a Real Stand Up Employee with My New Standing Desk
I recently purchased a standing desk for my home office so I can stand up while working. No, I’m not a self-loathing masochist, I just got tired of sitting on my ass all day. You see, I sit while at work, then when I need a break I go out to the living room to watch TV while sitting. Sometimes I want some fresh air, so I’ll take a stroll out to our pond where I have a nice comfy chair to sit in and read. Then when the work day is all done I get to reward myself with a few hours of sitting on my ass until I go to bed where I do a form of extreme sitting called lying down!

Episode 1: Food Amazes Me
Food amazes me. I’m not talking about the kind of naturally occurring food you can just yank off a tree or run down on the highway, I’m talking about the kind of food people make by mixing things together in a test kitchen or laboratory.
