I woke at 2:30 this morning to strange noises in my living room. My laptop was spluttering, exhaling, and blitzkrieging something awful and I proceeded to spend the next three hours texting Apple care.
Since I have to take in my two-motherfucking-month-old laptop for repair, articles will be on pause until it gets fixed and I stop crying my fucking eyes out, because as the kids keep reminding me, I’m old and need to write longer essays and articles on a computer.
Meanwhile, enjoy some essays/fiction you might have missed. Stories I loved writing and it seems most loved reading:
I Lost My Best Friend of Two Decades to Trump
The heart is cruel above all things
Four Below the Floor
A story about a pharmacist, the girls he kept in a basement, and a teenager on the verge.
Everything Is Beautiful Here and Nothing Hurts
How I’m spending my days inside my house
The Women Who Sleep With Their Eyes Open
A short story about pallbearers, gas, fire, and meat
