Migrating everything over to the new laptop, which still has that new laptop smell. Went through it again, cut it down enough to add a blog excerpt while still keeping it under 5k words. Here’s the blog excerpt:
You always have two phones: same make and model, both secured. Phone One is for business, family and friends. Phone Two is for Girl of the Month and Girl of Next Month, and it’s pay as you go: no connection to your name and address. She only ever gets to see Phone One; as far as she knows, there is only one phone. This keeps Next Month off the radar of This Month, and your friends and family out of sight of This Month. If Last Month feels the need to keep calling, change the number.
This gets across the sociopathy and links it to phones well enough. I have a feeling I’ll change it before the weekend is over. But for now, there’s a full story, in less than three weeks.
