About

Who are we?

Well it’s probably easier to tell you who we’re not. We aren’t award-winning journalists with a laundry list of literary credentials, and we don’t claim to be. Sometimes we put commas in the wrong, places. And other times we start sentences with conjunctions. We’re raw, yes, but we’re real. We don’t care if that heading is supposed to say, “Whom are we?” and if you don’t either – then you’ve come to the right place.

What do we do?

We write posts that make you laugh, cry, or think. And if we do our job really well, they’ll do all three. They’ll be written simply, in less than 500 words. Simply put, it’s the best 5 minutes you’ll spend all day.

What will you read?

We write about the awkward moment when you say, “It’s nice to meet you.” to someone that you’ve already met. And the even more awkward moment when you make eye contact with someone through the slit in the bathroom stall.

We question how blind people even know there’s brail on the sign in front of them, and ponder whether or not we’ve actually seen anyone that’s handicapped using a handicapped bathroom.

We wonder why people are in such a hurry to stand in a big line after the captain turns off the, “Fasten Seatbelt” sign, and delve into the ethics behind reclining your seat on an airplane.

We write about common things in our own way. We simplify the complex and complexify the simple. Yes, sometimes we make up words, but we always tell a good story.

What should you do now?

Scroll down to the bottom of this page, and enter your email to have our posts sent directly to you.  And don’t use that fake email address that you gave the cashier at Kohl’s to get 10% off your purchase. Use your actual email address. We’ll only send a few emails per week, and we won’t sell your information to anyone – mostly because we don’t know how to. Oh, and tell your friends to follow BT^JM as well, they’ll be into this too.

So that’s us – we think you’ll like what you see.

But, of course, that’s just me.
