Over time, one gets observant as well as curious over the frailties of fellow humans. Being a student of literature, I was learning the more sensitive ways of responding to human vagaries. So when my friend asked me for some light stuff, I put down my ideas, coupled with a touch of humor, and sent off these skits to him. Thus came about these lighthearted musings on fellow humans. Some of the essayists I had to teach in the classroom, like Steele, Goldsmith, and Lamb, furnished me the tone, style, and attitude. Though these pieces deal with a common mans responses to experience, they present the uncommon mans sensibilities. It is this, if any, that makes these skits interesting to me and the likes of me, hopefully.
