Unpacking the Bathtub

‘Wait, wait, wait,’ I said, throwing my hands up as David began to walk down the hallway with his suitcase.          ‘Problem?’ he asked me, raising an eyebrow.          ‘Yes, there’s a problem,’ I scowled. ‘Beginning with why my adult son, who has a wife and child has decided he’s moving back in with me!’ …

Cabling and More

“You know, somebody like this Gideon guy would have been really handy back in the surface days,” said Redman, once they’d managed to escape the crazy Lorenzo. As they’d hoped, the guard dog had stopped chasing them once they left the Mornington Peninsula. “What do you mean?” asked Jesse. Redman drove with one hand on …

Sugar addict

Once upon a time, I lived the worst lifestyle possible when it came to health. I didn’t do anything bad like smoke or drink excessively, but I absolutely loved all things with sugar. Every day I was scooping six spoons of sugar into my coffee, eating cakes, and bags of lollies. I had the biggest …

Important Safety Certificate

The next time I tried to drive to the suburb next to Raceview, the exact same thing happened to my car. It broke down unexpectedly and for absolutely no reason. I remembered that when my mechanic pushed my car back a few metres it started working again, so I did that too. Unsurprisingly, my car …
