A short story using autocorrect suggestions on my phone. Autocorrect is my enemies . I am trying to eat myself better this new year. Actually started when in the House for nine days after incredible surgery. I have to email in small amounts now. And I am taking several different probiotics for Guthrie Heath. I [...]

I am sitting here watching the news coverage of the Iranian missile attacks.... A commercial came on about some poor woman with thin eyebrows... Iran seems like it has been an enemy of my country for my entire adult life... Fortunately for the woman with the eyebrow disability there is a makeup solution that gives [...]
