Welcome to Seattle, Mom & Dad

Within hours of my parents arriving in Seattle, my parents witnessed a pimp making a deal with a john by shouting a phone number and instructions out of his car while stuck in traffic on Broadway on Capitol Hill. Me: …I swear that’s the first time I’ve seen that happen. What else will they see …

I love my Dad

Here’s his reaction to finding out the city council where he and my mom live are praying to Jesus: It has come to my attention that the Constitution is being threatened in Lady Lake, Florida. For you who have never heard of Lady Lake, it is part of a retirement development known as The Villages. …

Hey Dad…

Did you know your city council is unconstitutionally supporting Jebus and wasting taxpayer’s time with prayer? I know how much you like writing letters to the editor – now may be a good time. At the very least, Bill Calhoun may be a godless golfing buddy for you. Well, that’s assuming everyone in Lady Lake, …

How my Grandma packs for road trips

True story.I’m going to assume this is a universal Grandma trait, not something limited to Greek Grandmas. As much as I do love her avgolemono soup, not so easy to eat in the car… Anyway, thanks, Yia yia! Now back to packing!

I’ve made a horrible mistake

…I helped my dad set up a blog. It was sort of inevitable, really. One, he’s retired – what else does he have to do? And two, he’s opinionated – I know it’s hard to believe, but McCreights tend to be. What more do you need to blog? At least he’s better with computers than …

Sometimes I forget that not everyone is a nerd

Mom: What do you imagine your wedding being like?Me: …I kind of need someone to get married to first.Mom: No, I mean, what would your dream wedding be like?Me: I don’t really fantasize about my wedding. I don’t know, cheap.Dad: Good, I raised you right. Now you won’t be the type who gets married too …

“You’re a biologist…”

I’ve learned to dread questions starting with that statement, especially from my mother. Apparently getting my bachelor’s degree in genetics and evolution makes me the Leading Expert on anything having to do with biology. For example, over the last couple of days I have fielded questions on: The best way to keep plants from drying …
