Apparently, The Tooth Fairy is going through tough economic times too. 10% of children did not receive any money this year, and 7% received less than a dollar. Are you kidding me? First of all, I don’t understand the whole “Tooth Fairy” thing as it is. In what messed up...

Every time I’m at the Supermarket, I start to remember my very first trip to one just like it. When you come to America from the former Soviet Union and enter ANY grocery store, you are bound to go into shock. As I’ve written before, the shelves of U.S.S.R.’s grocery stores...

Lately I’ve been thinking about the many jobs I have had, all through my teenage years and adulthood. The reason I started thinking about them is simple: every time my children talk about what they want to do when they grow up, and it changes daily, I usually have a funny anecdote...
