I think it’s important to be honest in any relationship, but in this one, I just can’t. Don’t take this the wrong way. I value our time together, I do. Though you make me cringe, and sometimes hurt me, I keep coming back and always will. Some part of me hopes you see this and will understand. Another part hopes you never see it, that my lie will never be discovered.

Dear dental hygienist. Though I tell you I will, I am never, ever, ever going to floss.

Profile Picture for Philip A. McClimon
Philip A. McClimon is an author who likes to write about the end of the world (post apocalyptic, Sci/Fi), mostly because he thinks the shopping would be awesome (No crowds, everything free). He likes heroes that are the strong, silent type and not necessarily male. By silent he means up until the time there is something snarky to say, usually before, during, and after doing something cool. He writes Urban Fantasy under the name Billy Baltimore for no other reason than that he likes the name. Many of the same rules for his other stories apply to Billy’s, strong silent types, smart mouth, does cool stuff, but these stories take place in a made up town called Hemisphere and involve stuff you only ever hear about on late night conspiracy talk show podcasts, which are, if you think about it, pretty awesome too. So, that’s Phil. He’s not strong, rarely silent, and isn’t known for doing a lot of cool things. But his characters are.
