Sky High 25: Meltdown

Samantha was busy in the tiny galley moving food from one place to another but Bianca only glanced at her before going up to aisle towards the cockpit. She couldn’t help her deal with the confirmation of their death. They all had to deal with it themselves. Continue reading Sky High 25: Meltdown

Sit-Down Comedy: Torture Chamber

I have a confession to make. I did something borderline violent a couple of months ago. And I was ready to cross that border into violence, gladly, if given the chance. Luckily for all parties involved it didn’t come to that. Continue reading Sit-Down Comedy: Torture Chamber

A Profound Look Back at the Week: November 16-22

You know how sometimes you think “That’s it, it just can’t get any worse than this”? And then it does get worse and you feel this urge to drop everything and go somewhere and hibernate? Yeah, that’s what this week was like. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: November 16-22

Sky High 22: Decompression

Michael reached out and put his hand on her shoulder. They flew in silence for a few minutes and then the sky was no longer pristine. Bianca tried to turn the yoke to the left but it refused to move. She pushed against it with all her strength but it didn’t budge even a millimeter. The plane that was coming towards them grew bigger and bigger by the second.

When Brain Means Enemy

I was taking Little C. to school the other day when we ran into one of her first-grade teachers, about 200 meters from the school gates. She offered to take C. the rest of the way so I could go home. Naturally, I agreed. C. said “Goodbye Mrs… I mean mum” and off they went. So did I, in the opposite direction, thinking how wonderfully perfect Mrs. K. was. It lasted for about a second and a half.
