  • The Lights Glimmered In Her Eyes

  • Breakdown (Mature)

  • Count your blessings

    I confess, this isn’t original. At a nursing home a group of Seniors were sitting around talking about all their ailments. “My arms have gotten so weak I can hardly lift this cup of coffee,” said one. “Yes, I know,” said a...

  • The Caving Club

  • Cab Ride

    I can’t believe I’m still alive. We caught a cab to get to the Tropicana on cheap buffet night-a typical evening. We were having a nice conversation with the cabbie, relieved to pick up locals instead of tourists. He was talking about the l...

  • Driving While Intoxicated

    “Shay? Shay, are you OK?” His voice is a distant echo. I’m not even sure who he is or if he’s talking to me. I don’t even care. I can’t get those dueling images out of my head. Her eyes, and widening smile. Her face,...

  • No Biggie?

    “No biggie? …Shay, did you like her?” “What? I didn’t even know her. Never spoken to her in my life.” “That wasn’t the question.” He is quiet. Finally I manage a glance in his direction. His face is...

  • Fahrvergnügen

    The autobahn stretches out before me, an invitation to spread my wings and fly. My driver seems a bit anxious at first, but soon, in the spirit of the moment, has my accelerator on the floor and my engine singing in operatic synchronicity. He is alert ...

  • Driving, Then And Now

  • The Deer

    It was dark at night, and slippery as well. I was the lucky one. The deer, frozen by instinct, was standing shock still in my headlights. I couldn’t stop for the deer. I was going way too fast. I had to go home quickly. My wife needed me. When I was ...

  • The crisis line

    Kelly drove home from work. She was so upset, she could barely concentrate on the road. Her tears stung her eyes, and blurred her vision. She kept thinking about Mike. She stepped into her apartment building, went up to the her floor, and went into her...

  • Death, Destruction, and Nice Driving

    What followed was a blur of dimly lit gore. Jess drove like a mad woman, swerving and accelerating. Bollocks, it was magnificent, aside from the being in peril for our lives part. I fired off at least half the clip, but there’s no telling if I hi...
