He tore into the box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal, skipping the usual cup of milk that accompanied his favorite late night snack, and instead, popped open a can of cold beer.

Damn good, he thought, powering up his laptop and checking his email inbox. Two from his girlfriend – yeah, silly, I love you too – one from mom – of course I’m still writing songs, Mom – and, an attorney‘s email?

He opened and read:

People are crazy, he thought, as the song lyrics flowed forward.

    Cinnamon and beer (maybe not so odd after all: smell and taste wise)…well, besides it’s the weekend?
    Somehow you manage it – great story, character development and imagery in a quick write.

    Dear Sun, Great story and loved the ending. 3 good emails in the same day. The song is very catch and he’s right – People are crazy! But, that’s what makes the world interesting. Nan
