I had a chance to tell her, and I still screwed it up.


#3

You chose well.


#4

I can depress myself fine already, thanks.


#5

My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.


#6

“Prepare to qualify.”


#7

None of them got away… Pan camera to large basement filled with shallow graves…

That’s going into a song!


#8

“You got lucky, babe.”

“Don’t let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya!”


#11

“They thought they were coming for dinner,
little did they know they were here to stay.
Some thought to excuse themselves early,
but,
none of them got awaaaaaaaaaaaay.”


#12

That to a Psycho Billy beat, we got us a winner!


#13

I should have told you how I felt but I chicken out.
I hope that you are happy.


#14

Isn’t this stalker shit?


#15

Talk about dodging the bullet, love.


#16

“Turns out you weren’t really as big as I told all my fishing buddies anyway.”


#17

Are you digging any right now?


#18

They’re doing it as a podcast rather than as a website app, because SESTA/FOSTA makes that too risky.

Chorus of a song I wrote over 30 years ago:

Leave the past alone
It’ll just disturb old wounds
Its a rule that covers lovers,
jobs, families and tombs

From the endless Wyndham Hill piano-synth background music, to the smarmy-lugubrious narrator, to the lo-fi sniffles of the first recorded “You left…& I didn’t get a chance to say goodbye…” I had to turn this off after less than one minute of fast-forwarding.
I would, however, be interested in reading or hearing less-heavily-curated versions of what folks would say to TOWGA. Mine would be something like:
“Thanks, you did me a favor, though I couldn’t see it at the time.”
