We Can’t Sleep

Joe: I can't sleep. Help me. Ayanda; Tell me about it. AJ: Us having a chat won't help you sleep and you know that. Ayanda: Selena Gomez! AJ & Joe: What? Ayanda: Remember that interview on BBC radio where they had Selena and you said you could be a better interviewer? AJ: That was a … Continue reading We Can’t Sleep

Fire & Ice

"You're so beautiful." That's how it always started. A thought. Simple, precise, never uttered by word-o'-mouth but conveyed via thought and somehow understood. I remember one dream I had, when I was around 14, quite vividly. I believe at that age I┬áhad already reached the height of my creativity. It was perhaps the best time … Continue reading Fire & Ice

But if we're going by an "encounter" that lasted a short while without any real personal exchange then yes, I've encountered the Fresh Prince before. See I … Continue reading The Time I Met Will Smith
