    summer of 2015 my family and I finally went on our first vacation in years. My mother and sister wanted to go to the ocean, and see the beaches, while my father and I wanted to go someplace completely different from Kansas, somewhere that wasn’t flat, dull, and filled with farm fields and plains, but somewhere exiting and new that isn’t anything like the place where spent our entire lives. We wanted to go to Colorado Springs, and so we did. When we arrived at our destination, it made the long drive worth it.

    I take the car and into Colorado Springs, hoping someone there can explain all of this to me. However, as I get to the city centre, there is no one around. Slowly I make my way through every street in Colorado Springs, either by foot or car. Doors have been left open; car’s still running, and pets left to fend for themselves. Again there are no humans in sight. Something has gone wrong, very horribly wrong. Could it be because I travelled in time? Have we upset the space-time continuum that…

    Coors could still offer unpasteurized beer and adjusting their “Rocky Mountain” slogan to encompass the whole country— “Pure American Spring Water.” If Coors established numerous production facilities, they could take advantage of economies of scale, use suppliers for ingredients, and simply concentrate on their primary business.

    under the big willow tree. She observed the snowdrop flowers that popped through the moist earth in the early spring. Watching the bubbling brook that wound its way through the field, past patches of lavender while she listened to the birds singing their songs of spring. Her dirty blonde hair blew in the breeze and her young green eyes shone brightly. She had never shown her special place to anyone. As far as she knew, no one else knew about it. She walked over to the brook and ran her hand…
