    Tachycardia is a dangerously rapid heartbeat, arrhythmia is an irregular heartbeat and dead is no heartbeat at all — and I had all three recently.

    That may be a slight exaggeration and a bit of melodrama, but the truth is I experienced severe panic recently.

    I lost my camera.

    And by “my camera” I mean the one the Chronicle gave me to use and not mine to keep.

    Quick after-school treats can be nutritious, too

    When I pick my kids up from school, I am always eager to hear about their day. I want to know if they did anything new and exciting, how they did on their tests, and most importantly, were they kind and helpful.

    After they hurry me through my questions, they have one and only one question for me, “what is for snack? “ I’m sure if you have little ones, that is their first question, too.
