SILY Episode 551 – Severing Unhealthy Relationships

SILY Episode 551 – Severing Unhealthy Relationships

Another student was picking on a smaller classmate in the back of the bus. I was only seven years old at the time, but someone told me what was occurring and then asked me to do something about it. So I got up and proclaimed in my strongest, and very childish voice that I would stop it. I did, but it must have been a “set-up” because the “friend” who was sitting next to me on the bus opened my metal lunchbox and threw my Christmas drawings out the window. I got off the bus crying, and my mom, who was right there waiting for me, took me home and pulled out paper and crayons so that I could recreate my Christmas masterpieces which were my present to her.   I never sat next to that so called “friend” on the bus again.  Read more…

SILY Episode 549- That’s Me in Spotlight

SILY Episode 549- That’s Me in Spotlight

You may recall that I first started singing by mistake shortly after I graduated high school. I was hanging out with the youth pastor of my church one afternoon, sitting in the back seat of his car singing along quietly to the song on the stereo. I was looking out the window just minding my own business and in my own little world…or so I thought. It turned out that I was singing loud enough to be heard and by the end of the day I was the newest member of his vocal band. You can learn more about that experience by checking out episode 42 of Stuff I Learned Yesterday. Read More…

SILY Episode 548 – Gardening Your Friendships

SILY Episode 548 – Gardening Your Friendships

I tried to tell this story two years ago, but I couldn’t do it without crying. Now, I feel more confident in my abilities, but to be on the safe side, I have my Kleenex right here. But let me go back a little further into the history of this story. My story begins on October 25, 1977 when Ruth Anna Bonge was born to loving parents in Norman…wait, that was probably too far back. Let’s get to the good stuff. In January of 2003 I met Ruth at a Tae Kwon Do class taught by master instructor Ed Rugh of the Rugh Institute. I remember that when I started the class a few months before, I was a little unsure because I didn’t know anyone and I had never done anything like this before. When she showed up in class, I was just getting my bearings. Have you ever heard of friendship at first sight? If you’re comparing it to love at first sight, but with friends, then you get the idea. I knew that Ruth and I would be friends the instant we met, and thus the “Hi Ruth it’s Ruthie” and vice versa was born. That was sort of our running joke, since our names were so similar. Every time we left a voicemail for each other, that was how it started. Read More…

December 5, 1973. Mom and Dad took their two-year-old son, me, to the hospital.

SILY Episode 543- Earning It

SILY Episode 543- Earning It

Believe it or not, I’m not a big TV watcher. It’s true. But few things on TV have excited me as much as the first teaser trailer for Fringe. I thought it was exciting, mysterious, and jaw dropping (no pun intended). At work the next day I remember talking with some of my co-workers about how cool it was. So when one of those co-workers suggested that we do a podcast about the show, I loved the idea!

That co-worker was named Jason and he soon had our other co-worker, Courtney, on board. We all pitched in some money and got the best equipment we could afford, which wasn’t much. I also bought a bunch of random gear from a friend who had it sitting in his garage. I couldn’t wait to get started. Read More…
