(Why yes, that is my husband, a pediatrician and father of two, lighting another tampon on fire before shooting it through the air. And yes, I am taking pictures and giggling. And perhaps there’s a neighbor or two glaring out a window. I’m not sure because flaming tampons give me night-blindness.)

Alex Iwashyna went from a B.A. in philosophy to an M.D. to a SAHM, poet and writer by 30. She spends most of her writing time on, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.
