10 More Plans for When I’m a Ghost

I have always been interested in the idea of an afterlife. I often find myself tuning into television shows depicting “terrifying” hauntings.  After a few minutes though, I find myself dozing off.  Why?  These ghosts spend an infinite amount of time haunting people in a boring, clichéd manner.  It takes a lot more than a … Continue reading

The Time My Pet Monkey Ruined Christmas Eve

Some years ago, a girl I was dating had asked for a very popular and hard to come by pair of jeans for Christmas.  I had searched store, after store, after store trying to track down just one pair, to no avail. Christmas Eve was finally upon us and I had to opt for a … Continue reading

Studio Rejects My ‘Life Of Pi’ Script

As the film ‘Life of Pi’ continues to do well at the box office, I cannot help but look at its success and wonder ‘what if.’ You see, I was actually asked by Fox to adapt the novel into a screenplay.

The Hawk That Follows Me Around And Highlights My Mistakes

When I was about fifteen years old, I woke up to hear a strange sound coming from the backyard. I went out to investigate, only to find a baby hawk, injured.  It had fallen from the tree above and what appeared to be the bird’s mother was tending to it. I watched for a couple … Continue reading

The Stranger in the Desert

I stumbled forward in the hot sand.  Each step further scorched my feet.  The sun beat down upon my face like a hammer.  My mouth was dry, my lips were parched.  I collapsed to the ground.  I knew this would be my last day in the desert. Suddenly, a cool soothing relief came over me.  … Continue reading

The time my pet monkey didn’t take well to the new dog

A few years back, I decided to purchase a dog. I had been hesitant in this decision, unsure of how it would affect my pet monkey, Chip Dip.  I didn’t want him to feel any jealousy, or as if my attention would now be focused on the new pet. After much consideration and after some … Continue reading

A Letter To A Horrible Flamingo Who Discovered A Talking Frog

In my recent travels through the World Wide Web (the internet), I came upon a web site featuring a device that spits out story assignments at random.  Being as how I am completely out of ideas, I decided to give this mechanism a shot.  My critics will be quick to point out that this web site … Continue reading
