The highs, the lows.

May 29, 2010

I brought the cigarette to my mouth and curved my lips around it. I took a long drag, eager not to let any of the goods go to waste. I held my breath for a few seconds. I could feel it diffuse into my blood. With every drag I felt my head getting lighter, my […]

Those were the days

July 24, 2009

It’s not easy being 75 years old; it’s even worse being 75 and traveling on a plane. But the worst thing is to be 75, traveling on a plane and going to meet one of your best friends who is on his death bed. It’s not easy to be living away from your homeland for […]

Everyone needs a drug to feel better

(This song is the perfect soundtrack to the story Pino Forastiere-Fase -1) She was lucky that I was there at that time. She was lucky I was there at all. When she collapsed on the floor, she was lucky I walked into the room. I called an ambulance right away without even thinking twice. She […]

Lazy ass pass some gas.

November 21, 2007
