How about it, Roomie?
    by Chase Guymon

How about it, Roomie?
Artwork by Lance Card

43 hours, 26 minutes, 32. . . . No, 33 seconds . . . 34 . . . 35 . . .

Well, roomie, I really ought to clean up. I already stumbled once over that pile of towels I left over by the toilet. I'm not the cleanest person, you know. I tend to forget little things. The water wasn't hot, but it was warm; warm enough to get the scum off my hands, anyway. Water is calm and gentle, not like my life has been lately. Not like this past week. No, this week has been hectic and painful and irritating. So I'm glad I can finally relax.

Where to begin, where to begin . . .?

Mother, I guess. That would be the logical place, and I'm nothing if not logical. Mother and I had a fight, I was kicked out of my flat, and I lost my job. But, now I'm here with you, roomie, and life is bliss. I think that sums it up pretty well.

What? You want the longer version. Well, all right.
