The rudimentary definitions of “hunter” and “gatherer” don’t apply to most of us anymore. But it’s still there. It’s in our blood. It’s crying out within you, “Hunt!” and/or “Gather!”
And that’s why women shop.
“Gatherers” spent time foraging for sustenance. “Hunters” planned and executed attacks on game. Yes, hunters still do this. It’s in their blood. That’s why they play sports. Ahhhhh…..that explains the …

[do] Mosley Street Melodrama

If you do not have a good time at Mosley Street Melodrama, we cannot be friends. That’s final. It’s not even up for discussion. You should have thought long and hard about it before you decided not to have a sense of humor.
Right at the top of my list of ICT favorites is Wichita’s only audience participation theatre – Mosley Street Melodrama. This is the best place in town to go for the biggest bang for your buck when seeking food, fun and entertainment. …

[shop] Don’t Be a Dumbass on Black Friday

Black Friday scares the crap out of me. I avoid shopping on this day at all costs. My sister, however, is a bargain hunter. The girl pillages clearance racks like nobody’s business. Over the years, she has started to rub off on me a little. I rarely buy anything that isn’t on sale. But I’m not an expert money saver/coupon clipper/bargain shopper like she is. And for a girl like my sister, Black Friday is a climactic moment of incomparable money-saving potential. …
