Deck and Amy and The Future

Deck typed away at his company furnished laptop after hours and listened to his company furnished cell phone vibrate violently with every new email received.  "We should start a business.  Be our own boss."  He suggested. Amy scoffed. "Two words: Sales" "That's one word," Deck said really putting his accounting experience to work. "That's how … Continue reading Deck and Amy and The Future


Waylan Used to Be Cool – Still Relevant

As I am barely awake at 8:30 pm and reading through the "Throwback Thursday" playlist from Spotify that contains just about every pop-punk band that filled my CD player in high school, I am reminded of this post from about a year ago.  Some things never change, but most things make incredible, incremental changes that … Continue reading Waylan Used to Be Cool – Still Relevant

"What are you up to?" Abe whispered. "We need new sheets," April answered equally quiet. The couple laid in bed waiting for their young children to finally slip into sleep for the evening. "Why spend the cash? We got three sets at our wedding. We're fine." Abe was, as always, concerned about the young family's … Continue reading Time for a Replacement


Deck and Amy and the Run-In

Dinner was taking place at the one restaurant in town that did not rely on loud 90s alt-rock to create an atmosphere.  As sad as Deck was to not eat a hamburger to the charming tones of Matchbox 20, he was more than pleased to actually hear what Amy was trying to tell him. "I … Continue reading Deck and Amy and the Run-In
