Eventually, after much staring and glaring and assuring the parents that we – by which everybody meant mostly me – was fine and that there was no crisis or panicking of some sort happening, my parents went back downstairs, trusting us to keep our talk quiet, and also as my dad demanded, “Safe!” I glared at Maya, “See what you did?

HELPLESSNESS AND HOPE Argh, futz-de-futzly futz futz!! I stop typing and sigh in frustration. Just where are my muses? Why are they not helping me out with my words? Don’t they know that words are a writer’s best friend? What is a writer if she can’t find the words to express herself? How will she survive? Arghhhh, imma expire!!!
