Why?: “Um, I wrote it?” Yes, he did. I like the part about the second-wife -to-be dressing up as Amelia Bedilia. I’m  a little confused about his kids, though. I’m also jealous because he covers similar ground to what I’m trying to do with my novella, although it’s actually pretty different.

  1. Interesting. I liked the subject matter a lot, and the characters seemed real. I especially enjoyed the descriptions of Mary. Keep pluggin away at it!!!

  2. I think its great Th. and I used to know a guy named Kelvin. His mom named him after the old timey refridgerator, the Kelvinator. no joke.

    Thanks, folks.

    Wm—I get asked about the kids all the time. I wish I knew why it came across so vague….. Me and my stupid poetic soul — that thing’s always getting me into trouble.
