Outdoing Myself

I’ve been in a strange mood lately, and I can attribute it to a get-together which occurred last weekend in celebration of a friend’s 25th birthday at the local pub. Not expecting a night much of anything (setting expectations low means you won’t get disappointed, is what I say), I just drank my cheap PBR […]

Highway Blues

How is it that a solo evening drive on a highway can always be trusted to keep our minds at ease?

The Diplomat
