The air was heavy between us as we sat around the coffee table again. I took my usual place on the loveseat and he took his usual place on the floor, propped against the futon.

I've worked retail on Black Friday before but this was a whole new ball game and it makes sense because taxes on things can be super … Continue reading Tax Free
Well, happy 4th Of July everyone! David and I didn't do anything considering I worked until six and he had a much needed day off. I got time and a half though so that's not too bad.
