It sucks to be black around some of y’all.

Being a smooth caramel Werthers Original amongst a bunch of tic tacs fucking sucks. I’ve said a million times that I grew up in a white suburban community, always the only one.  Sometimes I liked it, I like being the only one, chosen, unique, rare. I hated it for the same reason. Imagine being followed…

My Barbie Dolls were You

Have you ever played Barbies with me? If you knew me before and after eighteen, you have. It blows my mind that she isn’t as popular now, especially because she’s got a brand-new wardrobe. Ol girl finally can be anything she wants, with a bit of a tummy, shorter legs, thinner body; she looks like…

Unpopular Opinions!

Unpopular Opinion Game!😏 Name 10 things that you DO like that most everyone else does NOT…here are mine. They are in no particular order. 1. Eating butter 2. The smell of my own armpits 3.

Corona Virus Serves Fort Smith Woman an Entire Humble Pie

Let me go back, I promise I’ll do better! I’ll pay attention in batting practice, I’ll clean my room. I’ll stop making my brothers cry.  I’ll feed the dogs every day.  I’ll iron your jeans and put that crease in that you like!!

You can’t touch me cause I’m on Quarantine.

Quarantine, Quarantine! You can’t touch me cause I’m on Quarantine! Quarantine, Quarantine, Don’t touch your hands, don’t touch your feet, Wash those hands Cause we on Quarantine! We already have a song to commemorate our nationally-forced banishment to our homes, and I think it’s great. We are having trouble enforcing a lot of the touch…

Thank YOU!

Crazy weekend, but we survived it! I want to thank everyone who listened, read and shared my story. I’ve been advised by so many people to seek legal action, and the climate seems like it would make things worse for me and my boys. The town is small, and my oldest son is in Fort…

The day before Friday the 13th

Below is my account of what happened Thursday, March 12, 2020 I substitute taught for Coach Lee with Coach Newhart in Spradling and Bonneville’s PE Classes. We started our day in Spradling, then left for lunch and finished the day at Bonneville. Between that time, I shared lunch with a friend who arrived that morning…

That time a school principal told everyone I had the Coronavirus.

So and so eats their boogers! So and so has a crush on so and so! Shannon Hensley has the coronavirus! Thanks to the principal of Spradling Elementary,  I am on the receiving end of Coronavirus  2020 hysteria, and it cost my financial stability. With the help of another staff member, she emailed her staff…

We get it, Brock. You hate periods.

My biggest share wasn’t even created by me.   Let me just pile that onto my crippling imposter syndrome.   But It sparked a “heavy flow” of emotion from our male counterparts. In the words of the mighty Janet Jackson, it was   Heavy like a first day period.   So real quick I would…

This is how you live? A short story

  “You really wanna come in here?” I hold your hand, gazing into your eyes. I’m daring you to be terrified and enamored all at once and I know it isn’t fair.  I never said I played fair. In fact, you think I’m great right now but soon you will likely change your mind. “You…
