Parenthood: How Coffee Keeps Me Out of Jail

Parenthood. A difficult journey, of which there are many maps available to guide you down various paths. The hard part, however, is finding the right one to use. 

My path involves a lot of humor. And coffee. 

Parenthood: How Coffee Keeps Me Out of Jail ​details a hilariously raw view on how I am surviving my journey of being a stay-at-home dad. The reason for this odyssey is my adorable little son, who at times can also be a terrifying leprechaun. 

Series ingredients: Stay-at-home dad, humor, sarcasm, and real-life. No sugarcoating used. WARNING:​ Manufactured in a place that processes nuts. 

 

 

Uncharted

The world can be funny or terrifying depending on your outlook. Join our hero as he navigates the daily grind, experiencing life so you don't have to.

Hamster Stew and Other Stories

Hamster Stew is a diary-style comedy serial about the adventures of an Irish mom, Trish McTaggart, struggling with her teenage son, a scary ten year old daughter, and an out of control life which lurches from disaster to chaos. All she wants is a part-time job, more passion with her Scottish husband, and a hands-off mother-in-law but life, and her daughter, are conspiring against her dreams.

Perhaps the lessons her friend is giving her in "how to say no" will help?

But Wait There's More...

A heartsick and hysterical autobiographical account of events; that as peculiar as they sound, have occurred. 

Self-deprecating humor, that allows me to cope with the bewilderment that ended up being my life.

 

No Vacancy

No Vacancy is a collection of humorous personal essays. Each essay is independent of each other, but together the collection weaves an autobiographical tapestry, at times sad, bizarre, and deeply personal. No skeleton in her closet is safe.

Lisa tackles subjects including grand conspiracies, generation gaps, memory loss, aging, nostalgia, modern technology, Corporate America, airline industry, affairs, addiction, unorthodox relationships, male species, and female anatomy, to name just a few.

Sunny Side Up

A light hearted alternative to the darker Enter My Darkness series I began with.  This is to be a collection of cup half full entries.  

Known as an empathic introvert, I have been sadly compared to a doormat in that I appear to not stick up for myself and have loving been told only I can feel sorry for someone who has treated me poorly.

I see the world through a piscean set of rose colored glaases tinted in my favourite color blue adorned with the symbols of my faith. 

Come and share my point of view - see it through my eyes!

A young and bright programmer experiences the stresses of American acculturation on his first day in the States.

the robot & Roy: and the Big, Kosher, Dinner: Chapter One

If you have to know more than the title tells...

Let's just say the dinner isn't so much 'Kosher;' by either definition, as it is... not really a part of Chapter One anyway... directly, anyhow.

It's really more about an arcane relationship in a world not necessarily too far away from our own and the philosophical minutia that lies therein, ‘Pseudo-(Philia)sophically speaking;’ if you were worried the kids would be getting into some sort of romp through a Robo-Socratic-love based story.

Which they won’t.

There’s like- Blade Runner and Japanese Anime for that.

So, I guess you could say, it's the human conception of mundane science fiction at it's most mundane. So, you probably won't like it.

I know Roy isn't too 'the human conception of' keen on what he gets put through.

It'll Feel Better when it Quits Hurting

Many years ago my friends and I would sit around and play what we called "Jerry Springer: the Home Game". The object of the game was to see how many upcoming shows we qualified for, with the story to support our claim, and whoever had the most at the end of the program won. I was the reigning champion. This book started off as just a lighthearted collection of anecdotes, stories shared with friends over the years to both the horror and delight of my audience. But as I began to write I realized that the humor of my life comes not from the light moments, but the dark, and without those moments being included much of the humor would be lost without that context. This book is a bit darker than I initially intended, but I hope that while reading this I can make you smile, even on occasion laugh out loud at the ridiculousness of the situations I have found myself in over the years, and that you, like me, can find the humor in all the dark places. I do not believe I have any wisdom to share in this telling, nor is it even an inspirational tale of achievement by overcoming adversity, it is simply my life that I have survived. For better or for worse, this is the mostly true, fairly accurate, and almost completely factual account of my life. Some liberties have been taken to protect the somewhat innocent and a few small embellishments were made for the sake of a good story.

Grandmas Gone Wild

When first hired as the property manager of Sunny Harbor Retirement Village*, I mistakenly assumed I'd work with sweet little grannies who crocheted blankets and played shuffleboard for excitement. That stereotype vanished the second Florence walked into my office complaining about her former boyfriend’s new girlfriend’s “collection.” This place was Grace and Frankie meets Melrose Place meets Animal House and forever changed my perception of aging.

 

 

* This series recounts events as they happened, however, names, locations, and other identifiers have been changed. The residents portrayed in the essays are no longer with us.

Hellbound

"I will execute great vengeance on them with wrathful rebukes. Then they will know that I am the Lord, when I lay my vengeance upon them.” -Ezekiel 25:17

Little does anyone know, the end of the world is about to begin in a small town in southern Indiana, and a sarcastic diner-owner named John may be the world’s only hope to keep from being sucked into Hell…

After a large sinkhole devours Ezekiel, Indiana’s historic gazebo in the middle of the night, John awakens to discover that nearly all the citizens of his small town have begun acting out their most prominent of the seven deadly sins, while those not affected have packed up and abandoned the town with little to no notice at all. Over the next few days, John and his best friend navigate their way through people they once knew acting in unimaginable ways, a group of Bible-thumping citizens convinced the sinners of Ezekiel must pay the ultimate price, and a TV evangelist offering his expertise as a way to cleanse the town of evil… for a price, all while realizing John may be the only person on the planet with the ability to stop the town, and eventually the rest of the world, from going straight to Hell.

The Flexibilizer

A novella. Based on a true story.


I read your story holding my breath. It's beautiful. Very different. - Theo Horsten (author)

The feeling of isolation is palpable. I admire the way you employ time in the story. By not giving exact dates and jumping to unspecified periods in time creates in the reader's mind a continuum that matches the state of mind of the main character. - Bart Besamusca (linguist)

Each essay will explore a different topic but usually adhering to the author’s general theme of “how did I get here and why am I drinking so much wine?”  Hopefully he’ll change some attitudes and maybe some latitudes and have fun all the way.

Wine Comes in Six-Packs

“Looking back at the wreckage of my relationships, they have one common denominator… me.”

Mistakes were made.

A lot of mistakes.

Head shaking, stomach clenching, eye-rolling, awe-inspiring mistakes were made.

What could possibly have made you think this relationship was a good idea???

Mistakes.

Stop the Truck, I See a Picture

Most Americans think of two things when they hear Nebraska: corn and cows. I want to be offended, but both corn and cows outnumber Nebraskans, so you win; however, I think there is more to Nebraska than our main exports. This series will explore a favorite pastime of rural Nebraskans, which is dirt-road driving. What is it? What’s the thinking behind it? What exactly does one do on a dirt-road drive? Of course, it’s just driving on dirt roads, but digging deeper, this series will examine the philosophy behind the drives. I’ve laughed until my stomach’s hurt. I’ve cried until my checks were chapped. I’ve yelled until my lungs were sore. These rides are full of deep conversations and earnest introspection. We rednecks ponder the same questions you do. Why are we here? Why does God let bad things happen to good people? Is God real? We do all of this while eating Slim Jims, drinking sodas, and listening to sport’s games.

The everyday stories of Baggy Body and her gang.

Most of us have had "that moment" when everything in our world seems to change. The axis of our life shifts. Sometimes it's temporary. Sometimes it's forever. But at "that moment" you don't know which it will be. Baggy's most recent such moment was when she discovered a mass in her stomach. A mass she named Lawrence. This is her journey from Lawrence's discovery, through treatment, recovery and beyond. Laugh along with her as she finds out about Lawrence and gets her life back on its correct axis.

Left Socks Fabells N' Tells

I am Left Sock, I hail from ancient Greece, and for years my cousin, Aesop, has overshadowed me. Since we were mere babes, we wrote stories together, and while my Mother has told him how life changing and fantastical his were, she'd look at mine and say "who are you again?" Oh Mother, she was always a funny one. 

Today, I share my stories, and hope to enlighten others with my tale and lessons. Please tell me you like them, I worked hard on these.

Join Left Sock in his tales, and learn a thing or two.

"Can't lie, I didn't expect any of what happened in the stories to...happen?" - the Athens Review

"Some of these lessons were either really obvious or just depressing" - Thebes Columns 

"Please leave me alone I don't know how to read" - my neighbor

Riding in the Car With Children and Other Travesties of Adulting.

As a father of four children ranging in ages from 12 years to 21 months, Christopher Stanley is....tired. Riding in the Car with Children and Other Travesties of Adulting is a collection of short stories detailing the awful, stressful - and humorous - trials and tribulations in which parents and caregivers find themselves at the end of each day as they tenuously cling to their last bits of sanity. 

Exasperating as these situations can be, these stories also convey a tender overarching message to enjoy these days while we can, as they will surely be gone in the blink of an eye. Sit back and enjoy one family's chaotic tale of life, love and despair. Welcome to adulting. 

Humor the Antidepressant

A humorous barreling toward sarcastic take on people, events, and life in general. 

Fractured Fairy Tales

Fairy tales, that staple of childhood imagination, have always been filled with excess – fairy godmothers, magical pumpkins, talking mirrors, and the usual assortment of woodland creatures that tend to follow princesses about.

In Fractured Fairy Tales magical excess is pushed right over the edge – with often darkly humorous results.

In Cinderella and the Probate Will, plain and simple Cinderella earns the equivalent of a law degree, reclaims her family estate, and then deals with her ‘Sweet Prince’ in a truly twisted manner.

And Snow White and the Miner’s Union end up restructuring the entire economy of ‘a land far away’ while finally resolving unhealthy stepmother-stepdaughter relationships – all with a bang.

And in Little Red Riding Hood, well, you don’t want to know what happened to that wolf.

Enjoy these, and other short stories, in the series Fractured Fairy Tales.
