Scratched That Itch in Hello

We went and picked up a few groceries yesterday. I loaded up on fresh veggies because I missed them. Heh. Nothing but canned grossness in lock up. Chicken strips, roasted asparagus, roasted wh...

George paused, just for a moment, and Israel realized: it was the pause. The pause that everyone dreads, and that everyone knows ultimately is coming, and whose meaning is as clear as any outpo...

I wish it would pour tomorrow. Got this vision in my head, sitting on the covered porch, feet up with book in hand, space out to the sound of the rain. Yeah, that’d be nice. Even though I said I ...

Would you rather be in jail or in rehab? Rehab has better food, my own clothes and I could smoke and had access to soda. So rehab. Even though the accommodations were shitty and you were locked ...

When I got locked up the highs were in the low 70’s. They’re now nearing 100. The dorm I was housed in was freezing cold. It didn’t help that I pulled some muscles moving mat material (more on...
