AWOL

Gather ’round children, and I’ll tell you a tale. It has all the markers of a classic dating story: a jerk behaving badly, confusing and unexplained behaviour, attempted reconnection, more bad behaviour, and finally a booze-fuelled reunion and possible redemption. So what’s the catch? I’m the aforementioned jerk in this case. It’s no secret that I had…… Continue reading AWOL
