Twenty of Two – The Infamous They – Pt. 31

Slap on the chest with eyes closed and tears rolling down her cheeks. Slap to my face with the other hand. The chest hand rose up to slap the other side of my face and I could see she was going to whirlwind sissy fight kind of open hand slapping, so I blocked it then grabbed the other. She fell forward planting her forehead on the center of my chest sobbing almost uncontrollably. After a minute I released her hands. They immediately clung to my neck but her sobbing didn’t slow. Dammit fool! Everything you do to get out of here tightens the noose and drops another anchor. I’ve never wanted my phone to tell me to go kill someone so bad in all my life. The clock told me… Read more >

Twenty of Two – The Infamous They – Pt. 30

After a quick kiss and a smile which went all the way to her eyes she put her head back down on my chest. That was quite possibly the worst part in all of this. Why couldn’t she just cut my arm off before raising up. Damn! Pins and ten thousand needles all the way out to the fingertips. How is it women know exactly where to put their head to shut off all the blood to your arm? It has to be some gene on the X chromosome. I’ve never met a woman who didn’t put her head exactly there, first try, insisting it was the only place “comfortable.” Her head was only off that pressure point for a few seconds. Just enough to let some blood start flowing… Read more >

The Post-consumer Economy – part 2

People living in the suburbs with garages kept buying stuff until their garage got full, then they started renting garages at storage places. The storage business grew enough that people who lived in the high priced city, but had cars, began using them so they could have just a bit of stuff. Criminal fraud in business… Read more >

Twenty of Two – The Infamous They – Pt. 29

“Okay. Would you also agree that you have noticed the marketing of products toward women has been more focused on making women please themselves without regard for others? At least with hair colors, clothing and scents?” I queried. “Are you saying we don’t have that right?” Melony asked in a surprisingly calm voice. “No. I’m answering your question” I replied. “I asked how a woman gets a guy like you!” she exclaimed. “And I’m explaining why the deck is stacked against you and all young women. It has nothing to do with you being a single mom, what you do for a living, or where you live.” “Continue” she said. “This marketing effort has been teaching women to live for themselves, not others. It is all sold under the banner… Read more >

Elysian Fields and the Professor

Mel claimed his interviewee never showed up. As I replied to his email, he sent another. The guy just appeared, out of breath and frazzled, but not apologetic. The man claimed it was his right as a forgetful professor to be perpetually late. Oh, well. He is or was Albert Einstein. They’re all dead over there, you know. Mel: “Sir. I really must protest–” “Ach. That’s just silly, Mel. Who cares if I’m a little late? What I have to tell you is very important. As if anyone is listening on the bright side.” I knew bright meant, the old alive world, but I protested anyway. “Over four hundred people tuned in last week. That’s not too–” “Only four hundred! That’s pathetic young man. Thousands, millions used to hang on… Read more >
