The following is a true story

* * *

Wife and husband lie blinking awake in their nuptial bed as the velvet blue of predawn blooms in the east.

Wife: I often have dreams in which I cannot understand or use my cell phone at the most critical moments.

Husband: I often have realities in which I cannot understand or use my cell phone at the most critical moments.

You know that dream where you're falling and when you wake up your sheets are kind of damp?
Or the one where you look down at yourself on the school bus and realize you're nekkid?

Yeah, I don't know nothin' 'bout that neither...

With 60 words she told 60 stories (or more). That kind of writing knocks me out.

Harry Finch said...

Oh well, everyone has their own interpretation of genius. I wish, Ms OB, that I had written something as true and enchanting as you did in this post.

Hi gang,

I wish I could take more credit for the bit, but that is exactly as it played here at Casa Goat/O'Brien on St. Valentine's morn. I appreciate the praises nonetheless, Finch.

Sorry for the delayed response. I've gotten a bit waylaid by this that and the other. Stay tuned boppers.
