“And then we have success stories like Tracy here…”   I looked around the room to see who else was named Tracy. It’s not that common of a name, so that was kind of fun. I was half-expecting it to be a guy.   “What are you looking around for?” he questioned.   I swiveled […]

“Does your hair fall out a lot?”   I looked up from my copy of the Dallas Business Journal. Bewildered.   “Umm…” I fumbled.   [awkwardly long pause]   [awkwardly long eye contact]   “Umm, what?” I asked.   “Does your hair fall out a lot?”   I stared at her, confused. She couldn’t have […]

I have mimosas to thank for my lack of productivity.   But not in the way you might imagine.   A few months ago, several friends and I were enjoying brunch and decided to turn our causal meal into a Sunday Funday. Bloody Mary’s. Chicken and waffles. Gooey pecan and cinnamon rolls.   And, of […]
