Hardware Store Comfort

When tears stain your face, there’s only one thing that I know of that will make you feel better. I’ve always tried to be the person that you can rely on, to tell you that you’re great and that I’ll love you no matter what, but it doesn’t seem to do the trick. I’ve learned …

My Boxing Boxers

I love extreme sports. Always have and always will. I think it started when I was a child, when my family used to go to the waterpark. My big brother was always too scared to go on the waterslide, which I thought was just pathetic. I would have shown him how lame he was being, …

Multi-trade business

Sometimes I help my mother and her elderly neighbours with jobs around the house. Unfortunately, there would be times when there was only so much help I could give and I’d have to decline as I didn’t want to take on a job and make matters worse due to a lack of knowledge. It was …

The Steel Deal

Do you remember that guy who thought all the steel in Melbourne comes from outer space? Yeah, he was a total lunatic. The funny thing is, though, that we are actually within reach of achieving that. The astronomers at the Steel Merchants’ Guild have recently discovered that one of Jupiter’s moons has an incredible amount …

Braces for adults

I’ve had extremely crooked teeth my whole life. It’s never particularly bothered me but I definitely have found it uncomfortable from time to time. Occasionally I would get bleeding gums due to my teeth crowding, but beyond that, I never thought it was a big deal. I’ve always followed the notion that I brush and …

Prank Calling Welders

Okay, I’ll admit that maybe prank calling all the welders around Melbourne was a bad idea. It was a stupid dare that I shouldn’t have gone along with, but I knew Rachael would make fun of me if I chickened out. When I agreed to the dare, she shoved a copy of the phonebook in …

Take The Plunge

Everyone’s been giving Wilkins a hard time this week, and it’s easy enough to see why. It’s one thing to whimsically contemplate living in a tree, and quite another to wake up one day and decide you’re going to sell your 5-bed pad in St Kilda and move into the first unclaimed tree that crosses …

Hard Wear Listening

I just got back from a trip to the hardware store. It was a strange one, to say the least. I thought I’d just walk in to buy some electrical supplies and return home. Simple enough, right? Wrong. At this particular hardware shop, a young woman was reading from a novel. She also had several …
