I caught my squirrel rustling through my gym bag.

  1. This is important to remember. Love isn’t like pie. You don’t need to divide it among all your friends and loved ones. No matter how much love you give, you can always give more. It doesn’t run out, so don’t try to hold back giving it as if it may one day run out. Give it freely and as much as you want.
  2. What were they eating? It didn’t taste like anything she had ever eaten before and although she was famished, she didn’t dare ask. She knew the answer would be one she didn’t want to hear.
  3. He picked up the burnt end of the branch and made a mark on the stone. Day 52 if the marks on the stone were accurate. He couldn’t be sure. Day and nights had begun to blend together creating confusion, but he knew it was a long time. Much too long.
  4. She had been an angel for coming up on 10 years and in all that time nobody had told her this was possible. The fact that it could ever happen never even entered her mind. Yet there she stood, with the undeniable evidence sitting on the ground before her. Angels could lose their wings.
  5. I’m going to hire professional help tomorrow. I can’t handle this anymore. She fell over the coffee table and now there is blood in her catheter. This is much more than I ever signed up to do.
  6. He had done everything right. There had been no mistakes throughout the entire process. It had been perfection and he knew it without a doubt, but the results still stared back at him with the fact that he had lost.
  7. She never liked cleaning the sink. It was beyond her comprehension how it got so dirty so quickly. It seemed that she was forced to clean it every other day. Even when she was extra careful to keep things clean and orderly, it still ended up looking like a mess in a couple of days. What she didn’t know was there was a tiny creature living in it that didn’t like things neat.
  8. There were little things that she simply could not stand. The sound of someone tapping their nails on the table. A person chewing with their mouth open. Another human imposing themselves into her space. She couldn’t stand any of these things, but none of them compared to the number one thing she couldn’t stand which topped all of them combined.
  9. I recently discovered I could make fudge with just chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, vanilla extract, and a thick pot on slow heat. I tried it with dark chocolate chunks and I tried it with semi-sweet chocolate chips. It’s better with both kinds. It comes out pretty bad with just the dark chocolate. The best add-ins are crushed almonds and marshmallows — what you get from that is Rocky Road. It takes about twenty minutes from start to fridge, and then it takes about six months to work off the twenty pounds you gain from eating it. All things in moderation, friends. All things in moderation.
  10. There once lived an old man and an old woman who were peasants and had to work hard to earn their daily bread. The old man used to go to fix fences and do other odd jobs for the farmers around, and while he was gone the old woman, his wife, did the work of the house and worked in their own little plot of land.
