Hello Everybody! The names Dan Patterson, I'm not writing an autobiography because I don't feel it necessary. Instead I'm going to write a quick story. This morning I woke up with a beautiful lady. She was cloaked in her natural attire hospital bound for her noble work. I handed her the only clean glass, a beer mug, filled with black Chai Tea. She always prefers this elixir following sleepless nights. After her depart, took the recycling out and sat down to write "The Anatomy of an Avocado." Since then I have guzzled down enough coffee to keep me awake for days, taken my usual steadfast bicycle route and finished a few casual errands. Hope everyone is doing well. I've joined this site in order to further my writing - hope it will help and look forward to chatting with you all! Cheers!
