Fun with flash fiction for NYC Midnight!

AAUGH!! I can’t adjust.

Okay, so I got my new hearing aids today, and I’m wearing them as I speak. AAUGH! It’s a difficult adjustment, but I’m going to try to hang in there and not give up. In the meantime, I can let myself decide when to wear them: whenever I leave the house? All day when I’mContinue reading “AAUGH!! I can’t adjust.”

Oh no! Someone let Meg out of her cage again!

Bad morning. I woke up too early, and I was still feeling tired when my dad woke up and we walked the doggie. Up the street, we passed a woman pushing a double stroller with two kids in it. And then a man walking a beagle-sized dog came around the corner. I immediately went intoContinue reading “Oh no! Someone let Meg out of her cage again!”

Because I’m a gonna rock that tutu!

Well, I’ve got a scheduling conflict. As you all know, I’ve been struggling mightily to lose fifty or so pounds that I’ve been carrying for the past ten years.

A strange surprise ending.

Huh. I awoke at 8:40 AM, as did my dad, and it was earlier than normal for both of us. He told me he was going to take my mom to my sister’s house to dogsit during my sister’s honeymoon. I offered to take her since I was up too. My dad liked that idea,Continue reading “A strange surprise ending.”

Wedding drama!

So, my mom’s sad today. Yesterday was my sister’s wedding. Today is my parents’ pseudo-fiftieth anniversary (they’re long divorced, but they really care about each other, so it seems worthy of celebration). My mom may have forgotten about the anniversary, but we celebrated it informally last week at the Cheesecake Factory with my mom’s boyfriendContinue reading “Wedding drama!”

Grieving people from the past and updates from Meg World.

DEAR ABBY: Last year, after a falling out with someone I have been friends with for more than 20 years, I was OK with writing this person off and going on with my life. From my understanding, this person felt the same way. Last week, their teenage son died in a terrible accident. I wasContinue reading “Grieving people from the past and updates from Meg World.”
