Today’s High

She turned out the light and settled into the bed. As was her custom, she did a gratitude exercise before going to sleep. Today’s high was getting the new Taylor Swift album, but she was also grateful for the hello she got at the gym from the guy with the eagle tattoo. Oh, and she got a free coffee with her loyal customer card at lunch. It was a great day.

She barely knew him, but he can’t stop calling her. Even he knows wherever she go or wherever she did. The stalker is getting creepy.

  3. It was, of course, a lie. Eagle Tat didn’t wave—unless the knife he held while robbing her in the gym parking lot counted. It didn’t. The free coffee would now quench that predator’s thirst. But Taylor sang through speakers clearl—it used to be mad—mad—mad—mad…

  4. “Today’s high, light is the sparkling jewel known as Cincinnati.” He knew this was going to end his career as a weatherman, but he was tired of the phrase and wanted something original to say. “All things being equal, Wish we could all live in Hawaii. But for those of us trapped with real life concerns, we will be staying in the sweltering temperatures endemic to this area.”
