Speed Dating With a Muse

Greg’s stories always crack me up and this one is no exception. Enjoy!

As many of you know, my muse and I broke up last year.

I cast no blame, the fault was just as much mine as hers.

She wanted more from me, or perhaps she wanted more than me, but either way the result was the same: harsh words, flashes of anger and disappointment.
