Far be it from me to criticize those who get away with something they shouldn’t for a meager gain—like pretending it’s your birthday to score a free cupcake or whatever from a restaurant. It’s even a little funny when your friends pull this prank on you, but only if it’s done rarely; not only is birthday song…Read more...

Back in the spring, it didn’t take long for my 9-year-old son to develop a condition I’ve come to think of as Zoom Fatigue. He didn’t mind completing his classwork online and he didn’t mind the academic schedule I put together for him. But when came time to Zoom with his class? Dude was not interested.Read more...
