I run into my house foaming at the mouth and scream I have been fired so lets party. My wife just looks at me and screams "Andrew there is some crazey mad man in our house".

A tall muscular man walks in to the room with a phone in one hand and says" All right buddy settle down. I have called the police and they are on there way". I stare at them like they are the crazey ones and suddenly I notice this is not my house. I run my fingers through my hair and say "so sorry I got the wrong house".

I back out slowly the Andrew follows me. I turn to run and Adrew gets me with a running tackle. I then brake down in sobs and cry "I can't believe I was fired. After giving them 15 years of my bloody life they fire me. All I did was nearlly sleep walk off the top of the building we where working on".

Andrew leads me into the house and sits me on the couch. His wife whos name a later learn is Marrie brings me a glass of water. "Thank you for being so understanding." I grumble. Marrie says to me "no problem. now lets wait for the police to come and mabey they can get you some help".

fast forwarding to 1 year in to the futre


Know Andrew, Marrie and I are great friends we visit about twice a week. I am getting some therripy about two times a month.

"I stare at them like they are the crazey ones and suddenly I notice this is not my house. "

*laughs*

by the way, one thing you can do to help make your writing easier to read is to use a few more paragraph breaks. One good rule of thumb is, anytime there's a new speaker (something in quotes) it should be in a new paragraph.
