My life is a rock opera composed by drunk people. On the plus side, the drunker they got, the more the cab driver looked like Elton John.
"Sing 'Tiny Dancer'," Henry kept saying, and the cab driver kept saying he'd do it at a red light. We must have gotten out before we hit another red light, because neither one of us remembers him singing anything.

So we got out and started walking back to the apartment when Henry's old landlady recognizes us and offers him a tissue for his nosebleed. Henry smiled and kissed both of her cheeks. I hid my face behind a newspaper so she wouldn't see my black eye.
"How have you been?" she asked.
"Still bad at painting," Henry said. "Still terrific at drinking."
This started out as one of your requests, I swear it did.

"Still bad at painting," Henry said. "Still terrific at drinking."

Sounds like every day of my life XD The first and the ending lines were both hook-line-and-sinker, very interesting and thought-provoking.

Just fyi for writing on the web though, it's a lot nicer to read if you put a full space between each paragraph and a double- or triple- space between sections.

Thank you! I had a lot of fun writing this.

It'd be nice if you referred that last part to #Vignettophiles, because it is a group rule to refrain from spacing. I much prefer it your way as well.

I can tell, it has a very comedic undertone to it! 8D

Sweet landladies are <3.

Also, your icon is going to give someone an epileptic seizure someday.

I live to blind you.
Actually, I'm getting a new icon soon, I promise.

On behalf of everyone who's ever been almost-blinded by your icon: please and thank you. :'D
