Bad Ideas I've Had

by Stacie Adams

A short story collection about a 90s band named Needlefish

Going to film school

Not using my given name

Hating more than I love

Adopting a giant rabbit to save it from becoming dinner

Not realizing my potential sooner

Letting other people dictate who I really am

Getting into Breaking Bad years too late

Thinking I had a handle on things

Not leaving sooner

Not listening

Not seeing what was always there

Taking a lax position on drugs and alcohol

Not designating a driver
Cutting ties too soon, or not soon enough

Not punching that bitch in the jaw when I had the chance to

Not leaving sooner

Being happy

Being content

Pretending to be something I wasn't

Neglecting ketchup for 33 years
