Jace Whatcott

Jace Whatcott is a self-diagnosed introvert who loves crossword puzzles, golf, and reading. Despite being a male contributor—one of the few on this particular website—he is not in unfamiliar territory. Because he is an English major, 90% of his classmates are females, so he’s not too worried about being a fish out of water. One of his favorite things to do is to raid local thrift stores for used books. He’s always looking for something to read, or for something to put on his endless to-read list. When he’s not doing schoolwork, perusing thrift stores, writing, editing, or reading, he’s spending time with his best friend—his bed. He sure does enjoy taking naps. Most of the time, his nap time is prefaced by crossword puzzles. He’s just taking it one day at a time, trying to find contentment in each one of those passing days.

But sometimes, a box can offer quite a bit more than just temporary fun or a sled that Dad can drag around the carpet. Babies are little people with itty bitty needs, like little, tiny shoes, shirts, diapers – even ...
