peter-ivey-hansen-_qs_unAZpKA-unsplashChristmas, 1997. Every other gift had already been opened, and while you smiled politely when you saw the PlayStation with a brand-new copy of Final Fantasy VII, there was something missing. There was that one thing you’d wanted for years, but your parents never listened to your pleas. Mom wanted you to be “cool” and “normal,” but you knew that isn’t what Fate had planned. Dad wanted to prepare you for the family business by gifting you a new dog, but you always thought that his job as a taxidermist was a little creepy. Read the rest »

The Remodel That Never Ends

By Storbox Self-Storage on June 20, 2019 - Comments off

milivoj-kuhar-Te48TPzdcU8-unsplashMuch like “The Song That Never Ends” from Lamp Chop’s Sing-Along, you were exposed to a home renovation project that lasted for eternity—and it was just as blood-boiling. Why did your dad choose to buy a dinky, blue-slatted one-story on a dirt lot, if all he ever wanted was a 3,000-square-foot McMansion? Oh, sure, Dad; $85,000 was a steal. In 1980. Read the rest »

Summer Is Coming

coconut-dawn-daylight-1152359With the White Walkers defeated and the Long Night averted by Jon Snow and the other heroes of the battle of Winterfell, winter has finally come to an end. We know what you’re thinking: “Wait, winter just started!” and “Wasn’t the Night King supposed to be scary? His whole army got defeated in the very first battle they had to fight!” Right on both counts! Read the rest »

By Storbox Self-Storage on June 2, 2019 - Comments off

action-adventure-adventurer-2225771Your wife is pregnant with your third child. You manage a Taco Bell by day, and take classes in typewriter repair at night. You’re saving up to send your kids to community college while trying to pay off the Saturn you bought at 22% interest. Sure, the future looks rough, but that doesn’t mean you should abandon your dreams—you just need to set them aside for the present. Read the rest »

Graduation Congratulations

By Storbox Self-Storage on May 30, 2019 - Comments off

cap-celebrate-celebration-1205651Christmas in July? More like Christmas on May 29th, 2019, when your son finally moved that yellow tassel from one side of his square cap to the other in a crowded auditorium. Those seven years of Pasadena High went by so quickly for him…and so agonizingly slowly for you. But it was worth it—Billy’s all grown up now. He darn well better be, because he took Home Ec like, four times. Read the rest »

You Can’t Unname Your Daughter Daenerys, But You Can Hide Your Khaleesi Fan Gear

kylo-705639-unsplashIt might not have sunk in yet, but Game of Thrones is over. You have been dutifully watching for eight long years, and now, like a member of the Night’s Watch horrifically killed by a horde of ice zombies, your watch has ended. Read the rest »

VHS or Beta?

By Storbox Self-Storage on May 15, 2019 - Comments off

vhs-1322179_1280Remember when affordable home videotape recorders came on the market? Remember being awed by the concept that you could record your favorite TV shows and watch them over and over again—at any time you pleased? Remember how it boggled the mind, that you could go to a store, rent a VHS or Betamax copy of The Wizard of Oz, and watch it at home—as opposed to having to wait till the one time each year when it was shown on network TV?

A Place to Store Thousands of Self-Published Books That No One Is Interested In

By Storbox Self-Storage on May 5, 2019 - Comments off

hope-house-press-leather-diary-studio-127595-unsplashThey say that being a writer isn’t easy, and you’ve often thought whoever said that was about as naïve as Ishmael when he didn’t understand Ahab’s weird thing for whales in Moby Dick. Clearly, Ishmael had not studied American literature like you. Animals can be symbolic of anything these days, like love, religion, or the complex social relationship called “friendship” that you never really got the hang of. But you understand literature, of course. Read the rest »

Save That Purple and Gold for Next-Next Year

ball-basketball-basketball-court-1752757LeBron may have invented the Million-Dollar Mile™, but he didn’t bring the June games we hoped for to Staples Center. In fact, the Lakers did worse than usual this season. Oh yes, it is possible. May we remind you it’s now been six years since their last playoff appearance in 2013? People are abandoning ship and jumping on the Clippers bandwagon, and even you can’t argue with them. Read the rest »

Party Hard, Excellent!

By Storbox Self-Storage on April 20, 2019 - Comments off

balloons-1786430_1280Forget balloons and paper hats. That’s kid stuff, man. Uninspired, trite, and kind of sad. It’s for amateurs to the great game of party planning, but not for you! You rise to the challenge. You answer the call. You’ve had a few “misses” and noise complaints filed by the people across the street, but your gusto will surely be rewarded in the end! Just one appearance by Kendall Jenner, and you’ll have it made, baby. Read the rest »
