Confessions of an Introvert

Posted by Jerrod McDaniel on

I am an introvert. Don’t get me wrong, I love people. I just also love hiding from those people. Finding a cozy corner, locking the door, retreating into a good book or some Disney+ — that sounds amazing! And I have this sneaking suspicion that I’m not the only one who feels...

I Can Lift More Than You

Posted by Jerrod McDaniel on

Go to pretty much any gym in America, and you’ll probably overhear a conversation about weight. I don’t mean losing weight. I mean deadlifting it, bench-pressing it, curling it, squatting it. You’ll hear conversations like, “What you lifting, bro?” “380...

The Narcissist Show

Posted by Jerrod McDaniel on

Do you know how you can tell you’ve made it as a comedian? Like really made it? They give you your own TV show. And not a show with some clever title revolving around some deep premise. No, they just call it The [blank] Show, with your name in the blank! That’s when you know...


Posted by Jerrod McDaniel on

People are afraid of a lot of things. And by people, I mean me. I am afraid of a lot of things. There are the popular choices, of course, like fear of dying, fear of heights, fear of Mongolian death worms. (Okay, maybe not that last one.) But of all common anxieties, I think the one that tends...

What’s In Your Wallet?

Posted by Jerrod McDaniel on

I don’t have a lot of money. I’m reminded of this fact fairly regularly. Maybe you know the kind of moments I’m talking about. Like when you realize you just missed the lunch special prices and you’re wondering, “How can I casually crawl out of this restaurant right...

Unwelcome Strongholds

Posted by Jerrod McDaniel on

The entire concept of a stronghold is a place that has been fortified to withstand attack. It’s a defensive structure, and it’s intended to be there a long time. And to think that you have an enemy who has literally set up strongholds in your life — well, that’s a very...

A Society Out Of Whack

Posted by Jerrod McDaniel on

Do you ever sit there and wonder, “How did society get this way?” You sift through the news and find yourself just gaping in disbelief. It’s obvious that something is not right. That’s not a political observation; it transcends culture, philosophy and party affiliation...

God Wine

Posted by Jerrod McDaniel on

I’ve never been into wine. I mean, I’ve tried it. And I’d like to tell you I have such a refined palette that I can taste the subtle flavors, like oakiness and smokiness, but it’s all expired cough syrup to me. I know, I’m uncultured swine. Many have said that I...

Playing God

Posted by Jerrod McDaniel on

Now that I think about it, there’s a very real possibility that I love to be in control. Several years ago, I played a computer game called The Sims. If you’ve never heard of it, basically, with just a mouse and a keyboard, you’re able to quite literally play God and control...

Get Your Priorities Straight

Posted by Jerrod McDaniel on

Has anyone ever told you, “You need to get your priorities straight”? Not a fun piece of advice, but, if we’re honest, it’s usually true. Unfortunately, we live in a society that seems to be pushing us down a different path: the...
