Week Sixteen: The Bachelor Party

“So, is this it?” Dixon asked. “This is it,” I explained. “I have never been to a bachelor party,” Wilson said. “So I guess I didn’t know what to expect. I wasn’t expecting this, though.” “Well, you have to understand,” I said. “I moved out here to New Jersey, so there aren’t a lot of places that we could do a party.” “Oh, the place is fine,” Dixon said, as well he should have. I’d rented out the back room of Hanover County’s best Indian restaurant, and we were chowing […]

Week Fifteen: The Ten Forty

"Okay, Polly, what does the calendar look like for this week?" "You got nursing home outreaches all day Monday. You’re speaking at the Hanover Rotary Club on Tuesday. Two fundraisers on Wednesday, and then I figure you can knock on doors all day Thursday and Friday." "Can’t do Friday," I said. "I have to go into the city to meet with the family accountant to go over tax stuff." "You need to get a copy of your ten forty from him, so I can do a press release." "What’s that?" […]

I Knew You’d Be There

I knew you’d be there. When the promises of those Who promised, were never really promised at all. When they sealed the appointment, And I stood Alone. But you were always there. When I wasn’t sure Anymore Who’d be there. When they swore they told the truth, but lies were the theme of the night. When they said they had sent it, but the envelope never came. In my disappointment, I still made an appointment. With you. At the park at 4pm. As I headed there. I knew You’d be […]

Week Fourteen: The Transit Authority

Mark Campbell was tall and tanned, with an impressive shock of nut-brown hair, graying at the temples. He was the incumbent in the Thirteenth District, and had been for two terms. He’d won his last election by fifteen points, and my internal polling showed that his favorable numbers hadn’t budged. He crossed the room and squeezed my hand in an aggressive grip. "So you’re the wonder boy," he said. "I wouldn’t say that, Congressman," I replied. "Well, it’s true," he said. "I wonder where you came from, and I wonder […]

A Call From the Future, Via the Past

"That’s only three years from now." "Yeah, but this was a big deal. See, there was a group of Middle Eastern terrorists who hijacked United flights 93 and 175, and American flights 11 and 77 with the intention of flying them-" The player went silent. I looked frantically to see what was wrong. The cassette’s reels were still turning, but when I peered into the little window, I could see that the tape running over the heads was clear instead of chocolate brown. The recording was over. Damn! In the […]

A Call From the Future, Via the Past

I was sitting in front of my home computer, attempting to print out an article I’d found on the web. It was a distraction from my work and I didn’t want to spend too much time at it, so naturally the printer took the opportunity to whine that it was out of ink. I growled at it, to no effect, then rummaged around in my desk for the spare ink jet cartridge I’d seen just days before. I went through all of the other drawers, getting more frustrated by the […]
