(Author’s note: Post-trip, work’s been crazy. Hence why I haven’t been on here. But I’m back for today. And here’s today’s fictioneers)
Sharp Dressed Man
by Miles H. Rost
“I met her at one of the writing club’s outings.”
Delvin adjusted his tie, making sure that it was straight and neat.
“She had interesting ideas about characters, and I wanted to find out more. So we’re going out tonight.”
Delvin turned from the mirror and presented himself to his sister.
“You look good. Getting older, but looking good,” she said, while crossing one of her stitches.
“If we’re going to go see a nice play, I want to shine.”
“If you wanted to shine, you’d have shaved and polished your head.”
Delvin stifled a chortle.
“I’m gonna use that.”
RIP Dusty Hill of ZZ Top. 72 years young, on the way to La Grange.
