The May 24 weekend is the weekend that many wild parties have been spawned…parties, you dare not speak of…or do you?!? You wake up the morning after the weekend and don’t seem to remember much of the preceding events but notice several things seem oddly out of place, namely…
Get creative and have fun!
“Like everyone else, I am going to die. But the words – the words live on for as long as there are readers to see them, audiences to hear them. It is immortality by proxy. It is not really a bad deal, all things considered.”
