Joe and Sally have their ups and downs just like everyone else but a new college for Sally has Joe wondering where he fits into her life.

It is a Monday, Just like any other normal Monday, and the beeping 

of the alarm clock reminds Joe that the weekend is over. 

He stumbles out of bed and walks over to the bathroom to wash 

his face. Looking in the mirror, like so many times before, he takes
