Less than a month after I stopped writing my first blog, Sitting In, the editors or the editor or someone asked me to start another. I said sure, okay, but only if I could make this one different — not just stories but maybe stories that were shorter, more episodic, or maybe only episodic, and maybe sometimes I could forget about storytelling and write instead about trends or news or products I liked. We called it The Selection, and I wrote the first one about a lady stopping me on a ride to ask me to look out for her lost dogs. I still don’t really know what the blog is about anymore than I did when I first described it, and in the mix of all that it is, I ended up writing more stories than I figured I would. Here are some that seem to me to have worked out okay.
