I Can’t – Because I Am Stupid… WHAT?!
I didn’t say it y’all. (For those of you that have known me for years – that headline was quite shocking, I am sure. I am sorry. It had to be done – because even though I don’t say it – I have actually heard other’s say it, and I have had some admit that […]

To UBER Or Not….
Currently one of the hats that I wear is UBER Driver. Sometimes I do UBER Eats, occasionally I deliver a package, but mostly I give people rides. I have had people ask me if I am afraid to drive. They ask if I am afraid of strangers getting into my car. They ask why would […]
