And they come with no warning,
nature loves her little surprises.
Continual crisis!

Story Bone

"Looks like the house settled," the handyman said, looking from the crack in the wall to me. "Houses do that."

I wasn't sure if he was talking about the gash in the plaster or about my own home improvement skills.


If I had time to write this, I would call the story, "Crack in the Wall." As I've said before, I really suck at short story titles. I already have some story ideas for this, and I might eventually write it, but this felt like it needed to be released, so I'm betting one of you needs it as well. Have at.

We have a severe crack in our dining room wall that I'm just dreading dealing with.

A better story title for me would be, "Cracks in Her Head." But then, I suck at titles, too.
