left detroit behind
crossed the river
got on the train for a canadian getaway
a scene from the road rally in the sideways rain
leap frog in the park
last night i told a joke to a woman at a comedy club, led a group of strangers in follow-the- leader in t.j. maxx, bought 60 cents of gas, got into a theater box office, danced the sugar plum fairy ballet and push it, had the zingerman’s staff sing happy birthday to me, tried to jam our team into one shopping cart, read a children’s book aloud to an adult in the library, found five different kinds of balls, secretly wrote crossword answers in the new york times and put it back, wore protective hockey gear, held a lobster, paid for a stranger’s purchase, ate as a group at taco bell, wore university of michigan gear that wasn’t mine, added my gum to a public wall art display, read incredible notes, shared food and drinks and blew out candles and it was a night to always be remembered.
sock monkeys vs. glitters vs. kwames
what a wonderful decade birthday celebration
thanks to all of you for every bit of it
it meant everything.

i came face to face with this colorful display
and was struck with a sudden terror
for i knew
a sure sign that
the fruitcakes were on their way.
“a sharp bolt of hunger hit luther hard. his knees almost buckled, his poker face almost grimaced. for two weeks now his sense of smell had been much keener, no doubt a side effect of a strict diet. maybe he got a whiff of mabel’s finest, he wasn’t sure, but a craving came over him. suddenly, he had to have something to eat. suddenly, he wanted to snatch the bag from kendall, rip open a package, and start gnawing on a fruitcake.”
― John Grisham
a day in the life of glenn frey the cat not the rockstar: a one-act play
as written by grandies j and b
in our early morning wakeup writers’ workshop
with a lot of naturalistic dialogue
a wonderful story arc
many plot twists and surprises
suspense until the final moment
a very dramatic ending
that is sure to leave an audience
on their feet and wanting more.
“get into a scene late, get out early.”
