You ask, why am I here? Specifically on this page, but perhaps on this planet. It's sooo boring already, you say. My answer: well, you are. So how bout reading some short stories to make the time here enjoyable and meaningful. Eh? How bout it? Join me on a journey. The jaunts not long. And if you decide to stop at a street café along the way, don't worry. I understand you have stories to write too. So hop on board a bit. Eh? How bout it? The rides free, but d'you gotta tip?

Let us go!
