Search for meaning

By: Laura Stamps

Guess what? Six months at
my new job, and I got a
raise. Wow. Love this state.

Florida. Glad I
moved. Love my job. And my raise.
Time to celebrate!

A drive-in movie.
We should go. Tonight. Me and
Hazel. What’s playing?

Hazel likes action
adventure. Liam Neeson.
Yeah. That’s what we’ll see.

Big jar of peanut
butter. Two spoons. Yum! Drinks. Dog
treats. That’s all we need.

Got Hazel buckled
in her new car seat. Okay,
Liam. Here we come!
