Since Figment has abandoned me for cooler climes, I have been reading.

this morning I read Sailing, something I wrote and never read.

Some of you will know what I meant by that..something I wrote and never read. Things that just happen and you've pushed the submit button and your brain takes a hike.

My wife said, "Are you OK?"

"Why," I said, between swipes at the snot covered screen.

"You made a noise, it sounded like a death rattle."

"I was laughing," I explained.


"This story I wrote."

I shouldn't have said I wrote because she lost interest immediately. The only I that interests her is I paid the rent.

"Oh…well…better luck next time."

Luck? With what? Deathrattle?
