Proving my parents were right; if I didn't suck as a human being, I'd be much more effective at life in general, as well as everything I tried to do.

awww, ma'am, you do not nearly suck as a human being. it has been awhile since i did so but, first of all.... thank you for continuing writing a wonderful, engaging story. i continue to reread from the beginning every so often for the cathartic properties.

Nice chapter.

Especially the impaling part.

But Mike cooking... Oh my.

A few things:

- Really interesting, Tuck's choice of activities on a day off, both the morning revisiting his youth, so to speak, with Bill and the afternoon with Mike and Pam. Maybe it's just me -- several people here, I think, have said that they stopped thinking of Tuck as male a long time back -- but I've never seen Val as, well, genuine as she was at the mall today, before and after Pam and Mike arrived.

- Is Val really spacier than Tuck?

I really hated the thought of the bill that would be coming, but pay phones were worse, I was sort of sure. And definitely slower, because itd be a while before Mike checked his answering machine at home.
Why would Val think that she couldn't phone Mike's cell from a pay phone?

- I wonder if Pam figures she hit the jackpot? An afternoon with Val and then half an hour in the bedroom with Tuck. (But I'm surprised she didn't stay with Tuck until her sweater was dry.) Have we really gotten to the point where Tuck thinks that spending time with a girl in his room doesn't merit further comment?

Where is Travis?

I think something big is brewing.
I think Val jumped to a bunch of wrong conclusions when she saw a strange girl coming out of Travis's apartment. If you think about it Valerie and Travis never actually broke up. As far as Travis knows Valerie just disappeared.

Oh, she can *can* call Mike from a payphone. But *Mike* will still get charged for the minutes.

You pay per minute for *both* outgoing *and* incoming calls on cell phones. A fact a lot of folks don't seem to grasp.

In the U.S., that is. Other countries may have different rules.

For instance, here in Brazil the originator of the call pays the full cost of the call. This discourages prank calls to cell phones, for instance.

(How can you tell if you are calling a cell phone? Easy: numbers beginning with 7,8 or 9 are reserved for cell phones. Other numbers are landlines. If you are too stupid to learn this simple rule, that's your problem).


Don't call me Shirley. You will surely make me surly.

This is the second time Valerie replaces her breast forms for smaller ones. A few chapters back she was joking with Jill about looking like a porn star. Yet after the hospital stay Tuck has been trying to gain weight. Wouldn't breast shrink somewhat with general lose of weight?

Tuck's body has been struggling to decide if it's male or female. Did the male part take a beating? Razz

While Valerie has lost weight the forms didn't and the combination therefore makes Valerie look like a porn star. Note that I'm a guy and not very knowledgable about how body weight, point in the monthly cycle (and probably other factors) affect breast size.

Sure, but I assume Mike would get charged the same whether the call came from Tuck's cellphone or a pay phone. If calls to/from Mike were free or reduced-rate because they're (probably) on the same phone bill (the Tuckers picked up Mike's phone), Tuck wouldn't have prefaced the sentence with his concern over running up his phone costs.
