As Seen on TV!

It seems I might have watched too much TV and overdosed as a kid, because I’ve never really watched it as an adult.  This simple fact has made me VERY unpopular in the company of some people who actually are on television (some of them bonfide “Stars”) when they discover I have absolutely no idea who they are or what shows they’ve been on.  [My sincerest apologies go out to that lady who was a big time trainer on the […]

Ex-Bashing as Sport

There are a lot of sports I cannot wrap my head around, like – golf and bowling.  What are they really?  Sport?  Game?  Depends on who you ask.  For the most part, people who love a sport – whether spectator or participant – are passionate about the activity and take it very seriously.  I’m okay with that.  The increased respirations and heart rate that comes from their enthusiasm could almost count as a sport, in and of itself.  So, I […]

They remained the dearest of friends, Boy and Girl, holding each […]

Fallon Hotel – Chapter Twelve

Tears-of-laughter, tears-of-sorrow, tears-of-frustration, tears-of-anger, tears-of-joy, tears-tears-tears.  Jeri wondered how it was that her body was always prepared to cry, no matter what the circumstance.  It was also somewhat surprising that no matter how many tears: her cheeks were never fully saturated nor her tear ducts ever dry.  It didn’t matter how often she found herself bawling her eyes out.  Even as a kid, she never cried as much.  Certainly she had never shed as many tears as she had since […]
