Control Freak

I think I am a control freak.  My phone rang. It’s Noah. “I just got to work and the lab is closed. I forgot it’s a holiday.” My first words…”So I hope you’re studying!” Silence. “Well…no,”  he adds reluctantly. “I’m composing a song.” I could hear the guilt in his voice. And I instantly know […]
