My friend just moved in with his girlfriend

My friend just moved in with his girlfriend, and he was telling me about it. He said, “turns out I might not be designed for relationships.” I had little sympathy, I think I wrote back, “Tiny violins.” I said I was sick of men using that word like a bomb. I have a relationship with my pants, and they don’t gripe with me about semantics. I spent this weekend by the pool, chasing shade, moving my chair by the hour, using my umbrella like a sun dial. At one point I tried to move the umbrella, which was heavy at the base. I asked a man if he would help. He laid on his towel, a dry body and wet hair, and said, “You were the ones who wanted to be independent.” I was hunched over, dragging the stone base between my legs and said, “Not with umbrellas.” Recently I’ve been thinking a lot about dependency. It’s an embarrassing trait to admit. No one ever wants to say “I’m a dependent woman.” But there are times when I am. I think the violins belong to the ones who can’t admit it.

What a sad sound, a lonely violin without its orchestra.

Garrison captures sex, loneliness, and the random thrills of life with such poignancy, you yearn to read more…"

 - THE NEAVE

Perhaps the most distinguishing feature in One Dollar Stories is the transformation of the ordinary into sensuality. This is directly accomplished through Garrison  making every mundane gesture into an affair of intimacy...Its brevity strikes directly as pure drama and after you finish the story in about one minute your head whirls at how it is possible.”
