Don’t Shoot the Bee Hive – Episode 041

In this episode, I share a story I wrote about some scary things that happened when I was six-years-old.  It was originally posted on a website that no longer exists. I decided to add details to this story before recording it.

Don’t Shoot the Bee Hive

I wrote what turned out to be a rough draft of this piece of writing on August 22, 2014, on a website that no longer exists. What you see here is an improved version of that story.

Content Warning: This piece of writing includes discussion of bees, bee stings, and guns.

Where were you on 9/11? – Episode 040

In this episode, I share three pieces of my writing that originated on a website that no longer exists. I put them all together after realizing that they worked better that way.

Where were you on 9/11?

Years ago, I wrote three separate blog posts about 9/11.  The first was about where I was when it happened.  The second was when a class of first graders asked me questions about what happened, and the third was a ceremony that the entire school participated in.

I wrote these short pieces of writing on a blog that paid writers by the page click (and that no longer exists).

The Dragon is on Fire

I wrote this piece in 2009 on the blog of a podcast that I used to do (and that no longer is online).  This piece of writing is about real events that happened decades ago, at my first job.

The amusement park I worked at hired teenagers, and didn’t put much effort into training them before handing them the keys to one of the rides.  This amusement park closed a long time ago – and then reopened under a new owner.

Desperately Seeking Mario

I wrote this piece on April 6, 2015, not long after I got my very first smartphone.  Before this, I was using a flip phone, because it seemed easier. Shawn had to talk me into switching to a iPhone.

I didn’t try to transfer my old phone over to the new phone because I wanted a fresh start.  That turned out to be a mistake.
