  • I suppose every day is potentially skunk season, but right about now things start to heat up.

  • There’s this woman.
    I’ve only met her in person two or three times, but she and I belong to the same professional organization of women authors and speakers, so I see her name continually.
    About 10 or so years ago she did something that I thought was reprehensible and I took great pleasure in knowing it’s one of God’s top 10 “thou shalt nots” and that she would one day reap what she had sown.
    That’s not just karma; that’s biblical — a double whammy.
