It may not be a good sign that after every short story I write, I feel the need to explain. This is the kind of thing I would do if I had a podcast. At the moment, I don’t. So, here is the explanation or behind the scenes of my story, Samantha’s Days.Continue reading
IV. Will She Come?
Dakota finished his story and gently rubbed his palms on the table as if flattening it.
May nodded her head slowly. “So, you’re waiting for Cheyenne with no last name to come through those doors in,” she looked at the clock, “five minutes?”
He swallowed. “Yes, yes I am. I mean, she will come. She will, I can feel it.”Continue reading
III. The Complication
It was a few minutes after ten when I walked into the yogurt shop. She was already at a table waiting.

I went to see the Avengers. So, maybe I’ve seen it twice already in the first two weeks it’s been playing. Don’t be a judger. Anyway, I’ve seen it twice and to sum up – I like it. My favorite line actually belongs to Thor. (spoiler alert) After warning the others to be respectful about Loki because he is his brother he finds out what a bad boy Loki has been. “He is adopted,” Thor responds. I know, I know, I’ve seen the articles detailing how insensitive that joke was to the adoption community. I’ll let them wage that battle. And in my political incorrectness I’m going to laugh because it is funny.
Today is a holiday. Ah, I love three day weekends and I endorse them. Bless the activists, the presidents, the religious ceremonies, the fallen, the war heroes, the historical memorials, the laborers, the explorers, and anyone else who is responsible for me getting a day off from work.
