My stories

The meeting - good friends

Opposite sex friendships - are they really free of hormonal interference?

How I came to be here. Why I remain. People. Gracias Nicola, Tariq, Rafa, Claudia, Sandra and Pietre. And anyone else who might be in the reckoning.

Great, london_calling. Bare bones, but I like what structure you have used, especially the lifting of the safety valve. An ongoing war against stigma, I think. Like all wars, fortunes ebb and flow.

Maybe it was Douglas Adams. Ford Prefect scored 2 in abnormal time and Zaphod Beeblebrox settled it from the spot with a dubious penalty.
