FORGIVE ME. by riginal.
The two six- year -olds couldn't have been more different. Oliver had straight brown hair, spindly short frame, sallow complexion. A male plain Jane, nondescript, quiet-some said wimpy- bordering on girlish. From a large poor family. Jimmy was tall, big- framed, black curly hair-with the beginnings of an athletic swagger from hours spent with his personal butler- gym instructor. An only child. His dad, a wealthy importer, his doting mother did just that, society protocol a distant second.
Jim's mother succumbed to a deadly lung infection despite the best... (more)
YOU CAN BANK ON A LOAN. riginal
The banker's manicured fingers drummed noiselessly on the edge of the sexual dysfunction counselor's soft- pleated leather couch. Mr Greyson sat bolt upright, felt naked, inadequate, outside the confines of his corporate nest at the bank.

"Mr Greyson rest assured from what i've gleaned about your marriage philandering would be a retrogressive step neither of you should entertain if you want to go forward into the rehabilitation of your marital relationship". Greyson allowed a... (more)
WORDS JUST 'AINT ENOUGH by riginal.
I was born a punctuation destitute even though my dad was an epidemic at Harvard. It was the 60's. Dad drove a cheap rusty English Comma. One day it came to a full stop and rolled over. Comma.Full stop.Inverted comma. For the first time HE was lost for words. My mother was a religious fanatic. So religious, she used to extract the swear words from our alphabetic soup."Bloody awful" was thrown out constantly...along with the soup.
On occasions as a verbal treat, dad would bring home some left-over verbs and adjectives from his lectures. We ate... (more)
EPISODE 2. PETER GRAVY'S 'SURVIVAL TRIP' IN KENYA WITH BEAR GRYLLS.
In episode one i flew out from Australia as the representitive of 'Upyawz News' to learn bush skills from the master. I didn't particularly want to beat around the Bush too much as i believe ex-presidents' in America should enjoy their retirement leaves...if you twig. Turn the tap off on dam Watergate too, i say. Let the 'Bridge over troubled Waters' trickle down to an insignificant barely audible babbling brook of no consequence. Let shame implode on its on misery.

Peter Gravy's investigative tour of Kenya for 'Upyawz News'.
Hi all, Gravy here. 'Upyawz News' sent me to Kenya for a 'survival course' with Bear Grylls, so Ken you, or ya, put up your feet for a tick, (ticks so bad here in Africa 'feet up' is compulsory).

THE UPYAWZ NEWS FROM AUSTRALIA.
Hello, I'm Peter Gravy, glad to have you on-bored. I deal in hard facts. We here at Upyawz have been unfairly crucified for smelling areas. I spoke at length-in feet and inches- to our automatic smelling areas chappie only to find that his diction died. This may only be a one-off occurence but i am of the belief (the autopsy by our head mechanic Mavis confirmed my suspicions), that diction cessation and smelling errors cease simultaneously or roughly about the same time, as death. Arthur Chappie was not only a valued member of our news team- but... (more)
