Mac and Sheryl provided succor during THE BIG SLEEP. I was on a Spirit Quest, trying to find myself.
I found myself mostly on Mac and Sheryl's couch watching cable. Mac was finishing up an architecture degree and absent much of the time. Sheryl was working. I'd never had unfettered access to cable before.
I took up permanent meditative repose on the couch, remote in hand. Hey I paid rent in advance and I did the dishes… sometimes. Even let Mac use my car.
Third day in Sheryl returns with the classifieds. "Mourning period's over, time to find a job."
