tacky shirt, loud pants
your riches ain't persuasive
public speaking fail
votes are hard to get
be loud or be persuasive
but riches work best
riches flash in gold, diamond
loud alarms ignored

Games, puzzles, prizes. It's like the elementary school carnival that all the cool kids are too cool to go to, but deep down they just want to play the games like everyone else, so they go and they strut around scoping out the beanbag toss and cakewalk from the corner of their eye while they pretend to make fun of the other kids, all of whom are just happy as can be, until they finally give in and throw the beanbag just once, with a derisive sneer, and they realize that no one has made fun of them, and now the other cool kids are doing it too, and pretty soon they've forgotten they're cool and they're asking their mom for MORE money to play the beanbag toss again because they only need three more prize tickets for the googly-eye glasses or maybe the black widow spider ring or that basket weave finger trap.
I don't mean to set expectations too high. I don't think there are googly-eye glasses or a black widow spider ring OR a basket weave finger trap at the launch party.
But tell you what. If you buy Extinct Doesn't Mean Forever, the anthology my most recent story appears in, and you let me know you bought it, I'll enter you into a drawing for a black widow spider ring or a basket weave finger trap. Bob and Rob, and anyone else who already bought the e-book: You're eligible, too.
If you don't want to play in the launch carnival but you just want to buy the book, you can go straight here:
Chances are good that you have the ability to instruct.... It’s very likely that you fill your mind with new ideas... you understand why individuals behave they way they do in different situations. By nature, you bond with and work well with people who tell you what they want to accomplish in life. Driven by your talents, you may have friends who come to you for guidance, suggestions, or recommendations. Topics might include situations in their personal or professional lives.As my best man, Chris, said in his
Yesterday we went to Mi Pueblo supermarket in Pittsburg to get burritos for dinner, some Mexican bread (pan dulce), and a few other things. It's a lovely market, bright and big and clean and very festive. The food court is quite good (Ethan gave the burritos 9 sombreros out of 10).
On the way out, Sam noticed a huge bin of ice pops and begged to get some. It was just a buck fifty for a big pack of them, so we figured even though the unfrozen liquid glowed like it had been packaged in Chernobyl, we could try it. I knew we'd be in for some hilarity, however.
How the #@?# are you supposed to eat an ice pop in this shape after it's frozen?
