    Every family has one, whether he’s your great uncle or your second cousin once removed or your very own brother. The moment you step into the house you will invariably see him right where you left him: slumped on a couch or armchair with a cracked bowl of bean dip balancing on his crotch and the T...

    That girl, she had it all. Money, boys, and perfect grades, A future at a number one school, With a one-way ticket already paid. And she also had those things That money can’t buy Like long blonde hair And big blue eyes. Those boys, They dangled at her fingertips For a hand up her s...

    The pink bathrobe she wore was several sizes too big. It pooled around her feet and dragged behind her like the train of a great queen. She told Shay she had a good Irish name. She told Zoya that the Russians were all brilliant, brilliant people. She told Emily that Emily Dickinson was her ­fav...

    When princesses in Disney movies sing, cute little animals come running from every corner of the earth to listen, hearts melt, Prince Charmings fall madly in love, and evil is vanquished forever. What could possibly be better? At five years old, I lived in California (the long lost land of the pri...

    There's something fundamentally wrong about putting your hair into the hands of a scissor-wielding fiend in stilettos and designer clothing with a hunk of congealing, over-gelled who-knows-what growing on top of her head. She hobbles up in her heels, grips your hand with claw-like red fingernails, a...

    I had my bedroom window thrown open to the unusually beautiful October weather, the radio cranked up as loud as it would go as I buzzed through my chemistry homework. Far East Movement pulsed through the speakers, the bass line vibrating in my chest. "Poppin’ bottles in the ice, Like a b...

    I had a profound revelation a few years ago: Sex must be pretty darn awesome. Obviously I'm not speaking from experience. Virgin with a capital V right here, everybody, and uber proud of it too. I've never even kissed a guy, though my friends lament my tragically sheltered life and inability to ...

    If you’re anything like me, you write compulsively. It’s not a choice; there’s some little imp in your brain forcing you to get your thoughts down onto paper or computer screen or your brother's forehead or any other scrap of blank space, no matter the time or place, whether it’s four i...

    Whoever invented the Family Road Trip deserves to be shot. Who first decided that cramming a group of highly volatile people into an extremely small amount of space for a long period of time was a good idea? I was under the impression that if kids twelve and under didn’t get their daily dose of en...

    When new kids came to youth group, the veteran youth-groupers used to always introduce me as, “This is Keilah, the pastor’s daughter.” Translation: “You better watch what you say in front of this chick, or you’ll go to hell . . . or worse, her daddy’ll be all over you in three seconds fl...

    Every week I meet up with a bunch of fifth- and sixth-graders at my church to lead them in the “fun and games” part of their youth group. We eat snacks, talk about the highs and the lows of the week, then go outside and play Ghost-in-the-Graveyard, Capture the Flag, Aliens, and Freeze Tag. It’...

    Rabbits and dogs have a special thing going. Some call it mortal combat. I prefer the term sibling rivalry. Ever since we got our dog Toby two years ago, he and the rabbits living under the shed have lived in a constant state of tension, although I wouldn’t go so far as to label it enmity. Toby ju...

    When you’re five years old, and it’s your first time at the doctor’s office, the last thing you expect is for the doctor to whip out a giant needle of death and plunge it deep into the pulsing blue artery of your arm. They all smile at you, those scheming nurses and your backstabbing mother an...

    Mom fell in love with Dad because she thought he was exotic: mixed Norwegian-Swedish ancestry with toe-head blonde hair, blue eyes, and great surfer-bod. Dad fell in love with Mom because he thought she was exotic: 100% Japanese, long, silky black hair, and great cheerleader-bod. She asked him out f...

    In the Big Top of the World Aren’t we just a group of clowns? Can’t let no one see our faces When the curtain comes around. We’re someone different when we hide Behind the stripes of red and white. But then prepare to act it up Because the curtain’s going up. Quick, put on the ha...

    Every year it comes around, sneaking in with the cold weather and a whopping pile of dead turkeys. Ooops, that’s the dead giveaway right there. Now who on earth first decided that turkeys should be sacred to Thanksgiving? You hear “turkey” and your brain hotwires itself into Thanksgiving mode,...

    In an attempt to grow closer, my youth group leader suggested taking our small group sessions “deeper” by sharing real, serious problems in our lives with each other. It was a great idea, and the first session went well. We girls felt closer afterward, especially since we all had the seal of sec...
