I post a Very Short Story here every weekday. The stories are very short.

This is not a short story. This is a note to you, Dear Reader.

I have been awful and neglected this page for over a week.


Also…apologies in advance for the next couple weeks, during which time I will continue to neglect this page. I’m working on something exciting on my home base (, and it won’t be ready until next Thursday, and until then my mind and time will be absorbed in that project.

I’ll be back soon - promise.

Until then,

"You ate it?"


"Your…your fingernail? You really just ate your…"

"Nothing," she said.



They broke up after that.
