  • Fred didn't turn up to work today. He sent a text saying he was in Shanghai & now co-owner of a bar there and wouldn't be coming to work ever ever again.

  • This turned out to be a lie, for Fred showed up at the doorstep, completely drunk. He wore one shoe on the wrong foot and kept mumbling about a wrinkly grandma and a moose having a

  • moosegasm that lasted a full 30 minutes. "Fred, just come inside. You're knackerred again and besides, that's a pig you're thinking of." Fred looked askance at the deer head on the

  • mantlepiece. The wet glassy eyes and slightly parted deer lips caused Fred to stare like he was caught in a headlight beam. Fred's therapist said his wildlife fetish would take

  • His own healthcare plan cost $8000 a month, which made him drop out. He didn't even make that much in a year! Dr. Wikid wanted him to accept poisons and he always refused. Three

    Hey Futique -- is there an issue between us? If so, please PM me and let me know where I went wrong or wrote objectionably. And if not, regrets for connecting the dots wrong. ;-)

    I am not aware of an issue? I also do not know what would have you think there was.

    The foldingstory mail works if you follow eachother, but I guess most are aware of this 'hidden' feature. I've enjoyed the influx of new voices here. And some 'older' members have become more active again which altogether has made for a lot of ffun. Welcome (back) old and new alike! p.s. On this story:I like how MoralEnd's fold introduces the other (missing?) shoe without knowing about the first one.

    Futique, that's a relief. It was just me misreading things (as I sometimes do) -- sorry about that! I'm glad you are here, as I really enjoy your contributions.

    Messaging only works if both are following each other. But seriously I would love to know how you thought we had an issue BlastedHeath. Maybe I am putting out a vibe I am not away of.
