Moon and Stars
by Katie Christensen
If I had one more day to spend with Adam*, I know that we would laugh. No, Adam isn’t dead,
nor is Adam debilitated in some fashion that we may not speak. At this point in our lives we
simply don’t. I loved Adam, not all at once, but I loved him and still do. Yes, he’s a special kind

looked at me; I was defenseless to his addiction to my Gypsy ways (he loved calling me a Gypsy)
and thusly, we fell into each other.
Adam and I loved to laugh. He has the most beautiful, obnoxious, bellowing laugh. He may not
be the smartest kid on the block, but boy could that guy make everyone laugh. A sense of
humor is a quality I demand in my friends, and he has it. Even in our worst fights and stifling
situations, we...
