Days of Our Lives

Jim and Lefty couldn’t believe it.  Like many guys, they were secretly addicted to the afternoon soap opera “Days of Our Lives”, and now it was going to be cancelled.  Lefty was on his way to Barnes and Noble to check for collections of past seasons on DVD; Jim was going to check Amazon and, as a last resort, maybe eBay for pirated copies from China or Bulgaria . . .

Close Quarters

Conrad had decided to purchase his new condo on eBay.  The advertisement claimed it was “Top floor, compact efficiency–simple maintenance, ideal for the single guy.  Great views.”  Maybe, he thought after getting the keys at closing, he should have actually visited the property rather than relying on the slick virtual tour on line . . .”
