goldfish quickie

so, I'm sitting on the floor in the basement, surrounded by boxes- unpacking, sorting, recycling, garbaging.. you know, the whole "organize your life thing"...

Years later, long after the goldfish and the very powerful man had passed on from this life, the beautiful middle-aged girl stumbled upon an invitation while she was tidying her desk. The [and here ends the story].

To answer your questions.. Yes, for realz. No, I can't tell you what happens next. I can speculate that class ended, but that's all you'll get out of me.  And yes, I am currently seeking a publisher, we're going BIG-TIME baby!
