Slugs in Vagary

Stew in Vagary

Sometimes you have to add all the ingredients, stir it well, and let it simmer. A few hours and all the juices have mixed together, the scent fills the house, and you’re ready for your meal.

March? in Vagary

I’ve been putting off looking back to figure out the date. No conscious reason, just procrastinating. I thought I had more time. Didn’t remember how incredibly fast everything moved. I just check...

In Absentia in Vagary

My indifference is significantly more ominous than my anger.

If you’re looking for an update on current political events, I have to recommend the Z Man. He’s an intelligent, interesting, entertaining read, but without the typical shrill hysteria. Level hea...

Siren in Vagary

It isn’t even a whisper. It’s a peremptory command, complete with hands on hips in dollbaby lace, wearing bows in its hair. And tapping it’s foot. Humorous? Of course. Dangerous? How about honest...

Unmasked in Vagary

Suddenly and inexplicably all of the flirtaciousness is gone. You’ve stopped with the falsely nice behavior and the constant patronizing manipulation. You barely even acknowledge me. (Not a comp...

That's....Sad in Vagary

I don’t mean like boo-hoo sad. I mean like just… sad. That moment when you’re so ideologically driven, you can’t disagree with the sentiment behind a quasi-humorous anecdote without taking your b...

Sycophant in Vagary

It took me a while to figure out, but I’m pretty sure you told that completely irrelevant, sad song story just to ingratiate yourself to your boss. That’s pathetic. I don’t come to work to be bur...

She Said in Vagary

I am sick of love.

I wish I was joking. It’s never, ever your fault. It’s all just a giant, super-secret conspiracy of the patriarchy to give you STDs. Fortunately you’re smart enough to figure that out. Even if y...

In the Dark in Vagary

As the door creaked open, he paused at the top of the steps. A breeze blew past him, uncomfortably damp and smelling of must and mildew. He stared downward into the darkness, hesitant to begin hi...

If you support Trump… Good on you. He’s doing exactly what he promised to do. For once a politician works to keep his campaign promises. And just because some government employee is crying about ...

Just Teen Vogue, pushing communist propaganda. NBD. Let me save you some clicks. Communism has failed every time it was tried. (And it’s been tried a lot.) Your bearded, big mouthed, hipster pr...
