"K's Lullaby" by J Minus. Just did some great writing to this amazingness.
Free journalism tip of the day: Be in reasonable shape. I have no idea the kind of shape I'm in. It's not awful but it's not what it once was. All I really know is that I worked out today with my newest story subject. He's a Special Forces captain. I survived, but I'm tired as dirt and sore as ... I don't know, things that are sore. (Hey. I'm tired. Leave me alone. Because...) He also graciously invited me to join him tomorrow morning at 5:45, at which time we're going for a leisurely four-mile run.
I just hope that pickup basketball has kept me in decent enough shape the past couple months so that I don't hurl/cry/completely sully the family name.
