Unicorn Decal Dream

I am so sick. For the last twenty-four hours I’ve been flushed and sweaty. My body has been aching and I feel extremely weak. All in all I just feel terrible and I wish I could just sleep through the pain until I wake up feeling better again. But alas, I have to work. Fortunately, …

My New Car

Passing my driver’s licence test was seriously one of the best days of my life. I know it sounds stupid, but that little bit of extra freedom I now have is unprecedented. I love it. I love being able to go where I want, whenever I want, without having to rely on trams that never …

My boyfriend broke up with me last week. He said he’s moving interstate to be with a woman he’s only ever spoken to online. They met on one of those internet dating websites two months ago and he’s already sent her several thousand dollars. I feel like it’s a scam. Oh well. If he wants …

A Pre-Dinner Surprise

‘Uh… honey?’ ‘Ya?’ my wife poked her head around the corner, the sound of dinner cooking coming from behind her. ‘What’s up?’ ‘Have you seen this?’ I asked, brandishing the opened envelope I’d found on our hall table.          ‘Oh yeah, I meant to show that to you,’ she smiled, stirring a bowl in her …
