Birthday’s had never really ever been my thing. To my mother it was just another day to pull some con or grift, or to make some money. It wasn’t about me, not ever. So I came to just ignore the day, treat it like any other. But it was also the time of year where my pretty boy had a hard time coping. Our dreams … Continue reading Alex’s Thoughts
When I got back Alex was still looking through the sketches. I’d say he was about half way through. He closed the notebook and put it down on the coffee table when I walked in and greeted me with long languid kiss and we were immediately in our bedroom. I could get used to a greeting like that. I was up early – no earlier … Continue reading Breakfast in Bed
The boys were surprised by the late breakfast the prior morning. Alex and I probably should have waited until that evening to do what we did, but it was ‘his birthday’. I waited until our prescribed lunch alone time that I scheduled in everyday to give him the second present. Instead of meeting him out like we usually did I brought groceries to Alex’s apartment. … Continue reading Rescue Me
For a man who didn’t live with me officially Alex sure spent a lot of time at my apartment. Not that I minded.

Though he didn’t leave … Continue reading You Made That?
This was the first real birthday that I had with Alex. His birthday had always been in the dream. I remembered some of them. The last one with my brothers was a good one, and several others I had remembered. All dressing up and playing a part. But this Halloween we had kids to take out and do the human thing, my brothers were excited. … Continue reading My dilemia
Maybe I should get Alex a cactus for his birthday? He’s prickly like one. (He would like the one pictured) He likes Vegas. What better plant is there for a man who has everything (and would probably kill it?) I tease of course, I’m sure Alex could take care of plants – me on the other hand not so sure. Dirt in my house? I … Continue reading Cactus?
For everyone who has been following me through the journey. I thank you, but you also know AJ’s terrible at keeping me happy. She throws all sorts of things my way making my life a muddy hell sometimes. But without her I’d not be alive as it were. I’d just be some idea kicking around, and not an actual character sharing my fictional life with … Continue reading When things get muddy
