And the People Were Always ‘Good’

The bombs imploding on the sidewalk knocked me off my feet. I stood and shook the fresh made sand from my palms and walked into Mr. Tom’s Grocery. “Hi George!

The Right Dress

I’ve come to the conclusion that if you give a girl the right dress, the right shoes (I suppose barefoot might be alright too), the right crown and the right Prince she could be happy for an eternity.
