Being ahead of the curve in medical maladies

“You need to go to the doctor and see what that thing is,” Mandy told me on my third or fourth day of wearing a red, itchy bump on my face. It was parked in that little diagonal line of empty space between the philtrum and the upper corner of my lip, in just the […]

No use crying over broken eggs

By MIRANDA CIPKOWSKI Special to The Times This could not be good. From my bedroom, I heard the forceful slam of the refrigerator door. The kind of slamming that causes rattling of jars and sloshing of leftovers. The pitter-patter of little feet peppered the hard floor beneath them. “This may be really bad,” I told […]

Author’s note: My wife Mandy and I recently joined two friends for a weekend camping trip in Chattanooga, Tenn. What follows is the first of several columns detailing our adventures.

I’d rather be ‘man-sick’

“So,” Mandy said, the corner of her mouth turning upward ever-so-slightly.
