Better late than never, right? This past week has been super hellacious, which of course means the blogging has taken a hit. It sucks that the blogging is like the first thing to go whenever my schedule gets too full, because I really do enjoy doing it, but when you're all but dead on your feet, something has to give.

place he shared with his brother Jake, he noticed nothing unusual. But
then, he wasn't in much of a condition to notice anything at all, and
that would soon come back to haunt him. Compared to what he was about to
experience, a draft notice would seem like a mosquito's bite to shark
