I have a chair. When I first saw the chair, I knew I had to have it. It was different, it was unlike any chair I’d had before, so I went all in and invested in it.
I love my wife. I love my family. But do I love them as much as I love my boss. I scoffed and said of course I love my family more than my boss or my job, but then I thought about it a little. And you know what? It now appears as though I love my boss more than I love my wife. Here is the evidence.
I’ve seen quite a few of these ‘free pass’ lists, or for my American friends ‘hall pass’ lists. You know the ones; you and your spouse agree on a list of celebrities, that if the chance ever arose, they wouldn’t mind you shacking up with.
The problem I find with these lists are that they’re too predictable; they’re always filled with the Megan Foxes and Jennifer Anistons of the world. They really aren’t my cup of tea.

Are online relationships real? Are the friends you have online real friends, or are they simply an escape from your lack of “real” friends.
When is an internet troll not a troll? Here I outline why the common uses of the word troll are simply not true, and to encourage you to be more robust when considering people who have openly contradicted or questioned their outlook.
Saying goodbye is a big part of military life, but no matter how many times we do it, it never gets easier to say goodbye to friends and family.
