Get Over Yourself

      66 Comments on Get Over Yourself

I’m genuinely and mightily amused- and have been, for a couple of days. This is the kind of amusement that will always retain a pocket of privacy, no matter how widely and verbosely one describes it to the world.

  [Continued from Cindered Dreams (IV)]     Part Five:   During that night, she told me that when the worst of her misfortune broke upon her unprepared head, she found solace and succor from an unexpected source. In her neighborhood, there lived a retired primary school teacher. All the neighborhood children gathered around her every evening to study. Holiday… Read more »
