Slowly But Shively: Grateful for Mean

A recent guilty pleasure of mine has been investing in ABC’s “The Bachelor” series. I’m not proud of enjoying a show that does not pass the Bechdel test, but at the end of a long Monday, it can be fun to set my own worries aside and indulge in some catty drama with a side of hunky tennis player.

Slowly But Shively: Amends

Recently, I found myself in a situation where I had an opportunity to apologize to someone for a mistake I had made.
