A fall, leftovers and elopement.

Writers, editors and editrixes of the newspaper world might be interested in Subbed.

1. On my way to work, the smoky static air fills with falling dots and fluffs and feathers.

2. In the dark part of the afternoon, a leftover box of Christmas chocolates is pulled from a desk draw and passed around.

3. The story of two small German children who were caught waiting for a train to the airport. They explained to amused police that they were running away to Africa to get married. They'd even thought to take the bride's sister along as a witness. Why Africa? The would-be groom, six-year old Mika explained "We wanted to unpack the summer things and then we wanted to go for a bit of a stroll in the sun." I know the feeling, mate.
