The Quiet Place

Having a week lost to being asleep (not as much fun as it sounds), I’ve gone to that quiet place I go to when I have ‘so much to do’ but no time to do it with. Now, anyone who knows me will probably point more casual acquaintances to the big flashing warning sign, which…

Train Story 4: tuna

Tuna was the dominant smell. The whole carriage was high with the stench. People were screaming, laughing, screwing, fighting. I had thought many thing about the end of the world; I had expected human degradation and desperation; but never the smell of tuna.
