I’m beginning to think my job title is the Pro of Procrastination. I keep putting off everything…to play my games, be with my cat, and my husband. Sigh.
Luck be upon me! Twas granted a reprieve of going back to work in the ancient workplace I call ‘home’ during those 40 odd hours per week. I don’t want this quarantine to end; I like being here. All the time. Truthfully! Now, to find a remote gig after this is finished and maybe a different house so I can have a separate office too. 🙂

This week I’m sticking with one of my more dramatic works…Complications. First written in longhand in 1999.
Josh is a family man, a good doctor and a man in love… with his best friend. All is well until Greg discovers how he feels. Sadly, he doesn’t feel the same way.
Heartbroken, Josh finds love elsewhere, with Glenn, a much younger man. They have a whirlwind romance, until one flawed decision threatens to tear them apart forever.
With all the complications in his love life, will this doctor find a cure to mend his broken heart?
Josh is in love with his bff Greg, but Greg doesn’t feel the same way. The problem? They’re both married…to women…with kids. Now the wives know too.
“I agree with that, but just know that I’ll miss you.”
Josh blubbed. “Please stop.”
Greg felt a knife in his heart. “Stop it, please.”
“Why should I? You broke my damn heart, you shit!” Josh’s temper was coming to bear.
Aghast at Josh’s outburst, Greg knew he had to stand his ground. “How did I break your heart? I do love you! I’m just not in love with you. I can’t make myself be in love with someone!”
“And I can’t stop!” Josh retorted. He turned away again and buried his face in his hands.

Too late. Pandora’s box is open wide. Josh wishes he could take it all back, but it’s too late. Greg is losing his mind and has no idea what to say anymore that won’t set off his best friend. Oyyyy
