  •  Timaeus, my output has dramatically increased (14+ / 0-)

    for one reason...

    ...my kids just went to summer camp!

    See, as a teacher with the summer off and my book manuscript finally finished, I have time to write. Not every day, but the last three days, yes.

    I'm surprised by the quick-to-judge move. Not a good one, in my opinion.

            You could write one about how President Obama, in Air Force One, was in hot pursuit of a jet carrying Snowden to asylum.

            The chase gets really hairy as the two aircraft descend into a narrow canyon. As they weave in and out and up and down, barely dodging obstacles, Snowden's aircraft mysteriously sputters out of fuel and enters a glide. It eventually touches down, ploughing violently through the thick vegetation to its final resting spot.

            From Air Force One, circling overhead, a lone figure parachutes out and gradually floats down, tumbling to a halt near the SnowdenCraft's crash site.

            After wrestling off his harness, the lone figure, [our suspense building to nearly unbearable levels], FINALLY pulls off his helmet.

            Mr. President!

            As the president searches the downed SnowdenCraft, an eerie vibe becomes palpable. Suddenly, a noticeably irate voice bellows out:

            WHEEERRRE THE FUUUUCK IS HEEEEE?!!?
            The echo of which can be heard to this day.

    •  And let me say later, I apologize. (0+ / 0-)

      Over the years I've made more than one asshole comment like that, after a few drinks, probably out of envy to see some writers get so much appreciation.

      I absolutely don't think you're a troll.  WTF was I thinking?!

      Another time when i wish I could delete or at least revise comments.
