Short story: Schrödinger's Hat Box

In April of 2019 I gleefully packed up my home of 11 years. While fantastical in retrospect, during the marathon packing session I remember thinking that once on the market my lovely oceanfront home would sell instantaneously, and I would be off to an exciting new life. It was an optimistic time for April 2019 Jason. We had spent the last 6 months nursing our 125 pound Great Pyrenees through double arthroscopy. Diagnosed with torn cruciate ligaments, Nemo would require a lot of carrying up and d...

Salli, Soli and Saala BC-MC… Bachi Karkaria on the Parsis

How dare you ask me to write on this topic, Editorji? It’s a contradiction in terms, and only an oxy-moron would think that such a species with common traits exists. Our most common feature is that each of us is so uncommon. Shylock may have said ‘Sufferance is the badge of all our tribe’, but we have as little use for it as a meal without eggs. Instead, ‘Individuality is the badge of all our tribe’, as much as the sadra we wear. Naturally, the ‘I’ factor kicks into even this sacred garment. Hil...

Comment on layered yogurt flatbreads by Ava

Hi Deb! I wanted to suggest that maybe you tweak the wording on “Brush thinly with 2 teaspoons butter or oil.” This read to me like 2 tsp gets brushed onto EACH flatbread (which made for some very wet breads on my first two roll-ups!), but I think you might have meant 2 tsp of butter spread over 8 breads? Thank you! I love your site! These were delicious!
