Happy Ending?

I don't know if "Goat Man" is going to have a happy ending or a sad ending. I want him to get the girl but that might be too cliche. I really don't know. I've always liked stories with sad endings.

Anyway, I'll be taking a forced hiatus from "Goat Man" and will have a little time to mull it over.

I'm leaving to go volunteer at a summer camp tomorrow.

I just remembered I don't really like children.


  1. Good luck. Children scare the crap out of me, and I've heard you can't drink at these camps. Without alcohol to numb the fear, I think I'd break down.

    I'm sure you are infinitely better at handling it though, else why would you volunteer. Hope you have fun :)

  2. Thanks.
    I've done this kind of thing before, but it's been awhile and I'm not sure if I'm in the right mindset for it. I wasn't really planning on doing camp this year but someone called and asked if I would come to camp for a week and help out with music stuff. As cynical as I am, I have a soft spot and like making music that kids can dance to and forget about their problems (it's a camp for kids who are in pretty tough situations). So I said "yes."
    And then I remembered the time I worked at a grade school last spring and almost killed someone (it was a job I signed up for because I have a connection and needed money, not because the job appealed to me in any way).
    So we'll see what happens. You're right - you can't drink at these camps. Which is too bad, because alcohol would be perfect for numbing the fear. Haha.

  3. What if he got the girl and then died? That's sad and cliche, but totally depressing. I think its good. Just my two cents.

  4. Ooh, I like that. Or maybe he gets the girl and then SHE dies. Maybe she has some serious illness or something. Is that too "Moulin Rouge"?

  5. Or maybe he gets the girl and then they both die. Too Romeo and Juliet? Or maybe he doesn't get the girl because she runs off with a Sheep Man she just met.


It makes my day when YOU leave me comments. :D
