Gluten – Tiny Fear #456666666666

December 24, 2012


I was denied enrollment into ‘Artisan Pastries 101’ because of my gluten allergy. This is discrimination, I said. The Dean was not sympathetic. The Dean asked, why would a person who can’t eat pastries want to bake pastries? He had me there. The real reason was that I had once fallen in love with a […]

August 20, 2012


My last girlfriend was a mathematician. She told me that once all the love was gone there was nothing and I asked if that meant there was zero love left. No, she said, nothing and zero are not the same. Fine, I said, but I still feel like there is something between us. Maybe a […]

Freeway – Tiny Fear #17

March 3, 2012


People were running into the freeway on accident. They were so overwhelmed with the panic of everyday life that they were fleeing right into the trucks and cars. The city had to build a large fence. At the ribbon cutting ceremony the Mayor said, we want to protect the people. The Mayor said, we all […]
