The other day I was at work, mopping the floor at the end of the day. When I was done, I dumped the water from the bucket. I had forgotten to squeeze the mop out of as much water as possible so it could dry over night. I didn't want to have to empty the bucket again so I detached the wringer and placed it in the sink. I put the mop in the wringer expecting an easy time of it. What I didn't take into account is the pressure required to wring out a mop. I found out the hard way that a sink isn't designed to accommodate a wringer's specific requirements. I think I knocked the faucet about half an inch to the left. I thought to myself, "Paul, if you can successfully think of a dumber way to do this, I won't be forced to smack you upside the head." Yeah, no I couldn't think of a dumber way. Oh yeah, but about the Nocent:
I was sifting through my folder of short stories and I realized that several of them relate in some way to characters from the Nocent. I went through every story and found the ones that would take place before the Nocent novels and the ones that take place after. Since I already have a collection of short stories as a prequel to the Nocent trilogy, it was just a matter of adding more stories to it. It was at that point that I decided to make a fifth book. I don't have a title for it yet, but there are six stories already to be included in it! Oh, baby oh, baby oh, baby. You know, if fried chicken grew on trees, I would say that God's Chinese.
