I was there for this…IF it happened. slackmistress: There’s a longer post to be written about this, but the one thing I know is that everyone’s got their own bullshit.

Good Enough For Goodbye
This very short story I wrote a few months back is part of a larger collection that I am working on at a frustratingly slow pace. Today I feel like telling this one, the others are literally stories for another day. When I went to sleep on Thursday the last place I expected to be three days later was back home on Long Island to mourn my father. The phone call that woke me at 3AM on Friday changed...

The Last Time
The last time I spoke to my father was just over a year ago on a Sunday afternoon. When I called him after the Jets beat the Patriots (by the score he had predicted) we did not know that it would be the last time we’d speak but I couldn’t have hoped for a better last conversation. After discussing the game we ended on this note: “It’s too bad you’re not here dad,...

I Can See How This Looked Worse Than It Was
For a brief time my father lived in a very small house, across the street from my elementary school. The house was barely visible through the trees from the asphalt of the playground but from the top of the slide I could see the his roof. Every day I’d look at the roof until I was told to stop holding up the line and slide already. I knew he wasn’t home because his car wasn’t there but it...
