Keith mulls over Samantha Smith, object of Lesli’s jealousy

Oct. 30 | One thing at a time, Keith reasoned, sipping his coffee, chewing the bagel, debating whether to change clothes or keep on what he’d passed out in. He’d deal with the prospect of Lesli getting jealous over his working with Samantha Smith if and...

Lesli gets blamed for a drunken brawl  

Oct. 16 | Maria cut Keith and Luis off. After one had downed several double-Jack-rocks and the other polished off as many Margaritas. Luis gave her a look. Keith started to say something. She gave them both a silencing look. Luis paid the bill and they got...

Luis’ advice: Get with another woman

Oct. 9 | Keith looked lost. “Yeah, well, Louie, I thought she was the one, too. Then, well…” “Well?” his friend retorted. “Well is a hole in the ground.” He knew Luis meant well and only had his good in mind. His friend, though, would do well...
