Short Horror Story: Some Things Never Change

One of the creepiest tropes that give me chills are always "creepiest things my kids said." Whether it's a child mentioning a long-gone relative they never met yet describe in perfect detail or a quip about how they would definitely not murder their parents (Mmmmkay), I truly find children a tad eerie.

Work, Sleep, Eat, Sleep (Repeat x 7)

Reality: Stranger Than Fiction Part II

I never used to be so thankful for Fridays. When I worked at Walgreens, I always did a Tuesday to Saturday work week, so it wasn't until I quit that the weekends felt good again and I looked forward to them. My mood is lighter and I feel as if I finally caught back up …
