    boggle (verb): to be astonished or overwhelmed when trying to imagine something My mind is so easily boggled. It only takes one thought, popping in from God-knows where for absolutely no determinable reason, to set me off. I had decided—tryi... more

  • "He Had a Hat!" by Dorien Grey 3/26/2015 2:55:39 AM
    Coca Cola, Colonel Sanders' "seventeen herbs and spices," and my Aunt Thyra's angel food cake all share one thing in common: no one else in the world knows its secret or can exactly duplicate it. The same is true with humor: each of us has our own re... more

  • Marshmallow Man by Dorien Grey 3/23/2015 3:38:32 AM

  • Spam and "Jabberwocky" by Dorien Grey 3/16/2015 2:54:33 AM

  • "This, too...." by Dorien Grey 2/26/2015 3:55:50 AM
    One of the wonders of being human is that while we, among all living creatures on earth, are aware of the concepts of future and past, stretching out endlessly before and behind us, we must walk between the two on the infinitely thin tightrope of "no... more
