Guillermo saw in Adina someone with whom he’d love to have babies. He treated her like a queen. She was aware of how he felt since the third date, and when he proposed to her 2 years later, she said yes, even though she had a secret; she was born without a uterus. He loved her and he treated her better than any man ever did, and she committed suicide because she could not bear him what he always wanted-a child. Finding out after she was found dead, he said he didn’t care : he would have married her anyway.

In front of the tallest building in town she held up a sign that read CAN YOU PLEASE TELL VANESSA HILTON HER MOTHER IS HUNGRY AND HASN’T EATEN IN 5 DAYS?
Then a man invited her inside the lobby, where he informed her that her daughter died 5 days ago.

Ngdoche loved Faisreh so much she forgot she was disfigured until she overheard him defending her to his parents. She didn’t expect the words spoiled goods to come out of the mouths of people who say they were Christians. “Don’t give us no ugly grand children,” Faisreh heard them say.
“She can’t have children, “ Ngdoche said. “As a result, her former husband threw acid on the left side of her face. I love her.”

When Melissa’s mother told her she was no longer a daughter to her because she was a lesbian and that she was going to go to hell, they had just eaten at the all you can eat shrimp and lobster buffet to celebrate her mother’s divorce from her 3rd husband and to announce that she was pregnant with her Pastor’s baby ( her husband was sterile), and that she got a promotion at her job where she works on Saturdays processing chitterlings, using her youngest daughter’s social security number as her own so it doesn’t mess with her welfare money.

"That's the last thing I told your father. I was pregnant with you. “
I was challenged to write a short story in 100 words. The above is what I came up with.

That moment when a new friend tells you he doesn't need new friends as he doesn't have the time to spend with the friends he currently has, then the next day he calls to ask for a small container of your urine because he smokes weed and he needs clean urine for an upcoming drug test for a new job. Too bad so sad. I told him to call his friends.

I wonder if, at 51, I'm too old to be hanging on to that Happily Ever After or is it time for me to let go? I still want the wife and I want kids the authentic way but I'm a practical guy. I'm not having any luck in the romance department, but I'm wondering if I should consider artificial insemination or other options? I need to keep praying on it.

Bamboo, one of the “Four Gentlemen” (bamboo, orchid, plum blossom and chrysanthemum), plays such an important role in traditional Chinese culture that it is even regarded as a behavior model of the gentleman. As bamboo has some features such as uprightness, tenacity and hollow heart, people endow bamboo with integrity, elegance and plainness, though it is not physically strong. Ancient Chinese poets wrote countless poems to praise bamboo, but actually they were truly talking about people like bamboo and express their understanding of what a real gentleman should be-

I'm still trying to get over friendships and other relationships with people that couldn't care less if I lived or died. Why do I still care? Why can't I dispose of people (like trash, or a dead battery) as easily as they can dispose of me?

A lot of the things I want in my life are the things people take for granted. And it saddens me.
A friend was telling me how he dreads going straight home after work and he meets friends for happy hour every day because his kids are going to want his attention as soon as he walks in the door and his wife is always upset when he shows up late because she likes for them to have dinner together as a family every evening. She has a full time job, she does all the cooking and cleaning and the nurturing and he complains.
(What I wouldn't give for someone to care enough to be upset...)

Im not overly sensitive. I'm just aware, and I question people, and I make sure people are aware so that they know never to say certain things or behave in certain ways in my presence again. That's all.
