• “This is espresso. This is like coffeezilla.” he said to the three year old asking for cup of coffee like his.

  • Fair Enough commented on the post, oasis 1 week ago

    On any given day, sorting through my thoughts and feelings feels like scouring a dry and dusty desert for water to keep me alive. My brain feels starved and thirsty for something, anything that can keep it going. Keep it marching towards the ocean where it can finally relax.

    The medicine is like my oasis in the desert. I find it every day, just…[Read more]

  • Fair Enough commented on the post, floorboards 1 week, 1 day ago

    If these floorboards could talk, they would still just creak and crack and bounce with your movement anyway. They have spent decades underneath your feet and they are tired of all the crap that you track in and all over them. All our feet do is get bigger and heavier and the floorboards are tired of holding us up as we stomp around like apes. So,…[Read more]

    If she were a country, I imagine she would be an island somewhere in the Mediterranean. A beautiful place that I would dream of taking a tour of.

  • Fair Enough commented on the post, silverware 3 weeks ago

    He looked great in a suit, and he knew how to style himself in a such a way that made him look much more affluent than he actually was. As he sat down at a table with the group of otherwise wealthy and upper class attendees he only hoped that nobody would notice that he had never been taught the proper order of silverware to use, or what the…[Read more]

  • Fair Enough commented on the post, missed 4 weeks ago

    She hadn’t missed him. She hit him dead center. He was not allowed to let anyone, least of all her, know he had been hit though; or that the wound was as grave as it was. The wound was so deep that he thought it might kill him. He wanted someone, anyone in the world to understand his pain and without judging him for allowing himself to be wounded…[Read more]

  • Fair Enough commented on the post, flex 4 weeks, 1 day ago

    I used to be very flexible. I could contort my arms into crazy positions, but I as I got older I also gained a lot of mass and even though I am a lot stronger now I have not been able to maintain the level of flexibility that I used to have when I was in high school.

  • Fair Enough commented on the post, majority 1 month, 2 weeks ago

    You’re still being disagreeable forcing me to jump through hoops just to get more than two words out of you. I think that you like to talk just a little bit more than I like to listen though. So perhaps this is simply a waiting game.

  • Fair Enough commented on the post, purity 2 months ago

    As you get older it becomes more and more irresponsible to fixate on your own respective level of purity. Purity is often traded for knowledge and wisdom, and as we grow in knowledge and intellect our naivety fades away and we see the world around and ourselves in a much more accurate light. That is why children are seen as pure, they have a fresh…[Read more]

  • Fair Enough commented on the post, toughest 2 months, 1 week ago

    She was the toughest person to talk with about what he thought about her. She was able to absorb his words and thoughts so effortlessly and she seemed so impervious to them. On the best of days he might get a quick glance or a grin from her, but most days it was simply an emoji or an affirmation that she was flattered or appreciative.

    He hoped…[Read more]

  • Fair Enough commented on the post, plot 2 months, 2 weeks ago

    A plot is important, but what matters more is the tone of the story. The plot is simply the statement of the events in an order and fashion that best suits the telling of the story. The tone however establishes how you meant to feel. A great plot means nothing if the events laid out therein do not carry any weight for you. Million Dollar Baby had…[Read more]

  • Fair Enough commented on the post, market 2 months, 2 weeks ago

    Ever step back and wonder what it would be like to accidentally meet someone you know at a market. Someone you only know in only within a particular context, like coworker or classmate. People are always different when you find them outside the elements in which they have built the image you have of them.

    Sometimes I wonder if I ever bumped…[Read more]

  • Fair Enough commented on the post, logical 2 months, 3 weeks ago

    Should logic always dictate your actions? Some would argue yes and some would argue no. I think it comes down to what is most important to you. If you crave the destination then let logic be your guide. If the journey is what matters most then ignore what you should logically do. You can take the freeway and get there, or you can take the scenic…[Read more]

  • It was surreal to finally not just understand what she must have been going through when we met, but to experience it for myself. When she first told me about her state mind at the time I understood what she meant, but I did not understand how it felt.

    I had imagined the lack of fear and the perpetual numbness to at least be liberating to a…[Read more]

  • Fair Enough commented on the post, insults 3 months ago

    She insults me lightly and only when I do something or say something that cracks open her typically stoic and demeanor and forces her to grin or blush. “Idiot”, “Dummy”, “Dork” etc. They might as well be kisses on the cheek.

  • Fair Enough commented on the post, skyline 3 months, 1 week ago

    I have always wanted to visit one of those stereotypical parking lot locations on a cliff overlooking the skyline of a nearby city, where the young and restless teens go to make out with each other. I never been to one though.

  • Fair Enough commented on the post, sailboats 3 months, 1 week ago

    A beautiful day sailing in the sun with a gentle breeze to keep us cool and keep the boat moving. We start to joke around and she pushes me off the boat. While in the water a shark attacks me, a small shark so not too much damage is done, but the little bastard makes off with my swim trunks. She helps me back aboard only to find out I’m butt naked.

  • Fair Enough commented on the post, itchy 3 months, 1 week ago

    I once saw a fat man at the airport get out of his chair, walk over to a cement pillar, and then turn around to scrape his back against the corner of the pillar to scratch an itch he was not flexible enough to reach. Like a bear.

    Were just a bunch of animals walking around with an inflated sense of intelligence.

  • Fair Enough commented on the post, sequel 3 months, 2 weeks ago

    I think the best movie sequels are the ones that did not have to be made and instead were only made when the writer/director had an idea that was good enough to follow up to an already good story. Some examples of good sequels that were not required were Aliens (sequel to Alien). Terminator 2 (sequel to Terminator). The Empire Strikes Back (some…[Read more]

  • Fair Enough commented on the post, heaven 3 months, 2 weeks ago

    My heaven was helping her climb out of her hell. Now, as I watch her climb past me and onward towards the rest of her life I glance back at where we both came from and I think back to the beginning. Two strangers on the edge of a precipice, both equally shocked at who they had found in the darkness. I knew then that nobody that beautiful belonged…[Read more]
