Thalia pursed and nursed a pout.
Typist ordered vegetable soup and a half sandwich — no fries.
“Do you want a belly ache?” Nia knew all too well the grumbling and lethargy that followed an oversized portion of grease and salt.
“I knooooooooo but —” Thalia whined, “— nobody else at the table ordered fries eeeeeee-ther. I thought we’d be able to snag a few from somebody else’s plate.”
“Hmmmm…” Calliope plucked a Henny hair from her sweatshirt sleeve. “So you want your desire satisfied… through another? Sounds like a recipe for UN-necessary UN-happiness…”

The Little Book of Grief, Grace, and Gratitude
This book is about the process of grieving with grace and allowing gratitude to help us react the way we should to events we can't control. The author writes about his experience with losing two loved ones eight years apart and his journey in grief.
Drawist is grateful to have contributed sketched visuals in support of Chris Palmore’s story. If you or somebody you know is experiencing loss, Chris’ experience might offer a light in a time of darkness.
George Carlin: “Why do toasters always have a setting that burns the toast to a horrible crisp, which no decent human being would eat?” 😁
I somehow always thought there was a special, exotic sort of bread out there that required extreme measures to turn into toast.
Also possible that toaster designers are just lazy, of course.
BTW, despite not being on many dates in my youth, I long ago learned that the proper response to, “Oh, I don’t want any fries, I’ll just have a couple of yours,” is to increase the size of my fries order from regular to large.
