Ep. 69 Old Fries and a Flashy Pin

Welcome to the bench! We write on the bench, we snack on the bench and sometimes we procrastinate… but not the past few weeks! It’s Siana’s 18-year anniversary (WOW) so a bit of reminiscing leads to the old hamburger story, again. Siana tries to get Tricia to stop gushing over Hadestown and musicals and inspiration… ending in a rant. Known to many as the “too many ideas, not enough time” syndrome. It’s also #BenchWriteClub time – come for the old fries and stay for the good stories!
