Home for the Holidays: Postscript

By Claudia Hunter
I'm 32, but on the ride to the airport, I felt like a 15-year-old stranger in my father's car. God it felt good to get home - my real home.

Barista! The Gift Card That Saved Christmas

By Maude Perkins
I wanted to smash his head through the glass so he could get a closer look at the superior quality of people he was degrading.

Home for the Holidays: Day 7

By Claudia Hunter
We all have our truths. Mom tries to face hers.

Home for the Holidays: Day 6

By Claudia Hunter
A shrieking child trumps a gift card at Borders, and those homicidal feelings you thought you left at home return in a flash.

Home for the Holidays: Day 5

By Claudia Hunter
Even the dog is stressed out and downing prescription meds.

Home for the Holidays: Day 4

By Claudia Hunter
My mother is too sick to criticize my clothing. Lesson learned: Visit only when mom is ill. It will definitely improve our relationship.

Home for the Holidays: Day 3

By Claudia Hunter
Christmas Candylane at Hersheypark it is!

Home for the Holidays: Day 2

By Claudia Hunter
Here my sister-in-law's mom chirps "What's a hermaphrodite?" Dead silence.

Home for the Holidays: Day 1

By Claudia Hunter
The kids are glad to see me, but mom starts right in.

Cab #427

A scatting, velvet-voiced chauffeur can overcome the cheesiest of soft-jazz instrumentals.

Home for the Holidays: The Preamble

By Claudia Hunter
We were raised in a world without privacy, and that comes racing back when we're at my parents' for a holiday. You can be in the middle of a shower and the door will burst open so my Dad can put his pajamas in the hamper.

Tribune Tag Sale

By Will Cleveland
The Cubs, one of Tribune's entertainment assets, are "non-strategic," in case you hadn't already figured that out.

Barista! The Motley Weekend Crew

By Maude Perkins
Most of the homeless people are dazzling conversationalists. Whether they are talking with themselves, each other, or with you, it is never short of fascinating.

Cab #1180

Imagine being transported in a giant vat of Pina Colada mix.

Posted on December 14, 2006

Cab #369

The driver's odd behavior ranged from his strange choice of snack food to his red-light ritual.

Barista! The Refill Bandit

By Maude Perkins
If this guy really had to cut corners, he'd forego his daily, overpriced corporate coffee. But maybe the cup with the familiar logo on it is too much of a status symbol to give up - like his Lexus. I wonder if he bargains for refills at the gas station.

The False Promise of eBay

By The Beachwood Online Auction Affairs Desk
Can you really find "whatever IT is" on eBay? No.

Barista! The Unbearable Horror of the Kids Corner

By Maude Perkins
I realize, by the way, that some of you may think it would be cute and somehow appropriate to spell the "Corner" in Kids Corner with a "K." But there's nothing cute about it.

Cab #1396

He used to own a liquor store on the South Side. Now that was a dangerous job.
