onlylovepigs asked: I just found your blog. I love your style! Very funny!
Thanks! Oliver and the Maestro crack me up, too :)
hundredwordsinhell asked: I'd love to see some more flash fiction from you, like One Man Space Program. Not much makes me laugh aloud, but that was hilarious.
Thanks! Your piece about Kessler and the captain’s corpse was so well written -it really stood out to me :)
It was not immediately clear to Jonathan what hit the maestro in the face, as he watched it transpire on the monitor backstage. It came tumbling through the air, a fluid, flesh colored object of shimmering silk and landed squarely on Maestro Dreshevsky’s face, as he turned to the audience for his final bow. He staggered from the podium, disoriented and flailing.
Jonathan cried out, instinctively, “He’s hit!”
One Man Space Program
Daddy was an astronaut in a one man space program. Unfortunately, he was a very inadequate astronaut, working in a very inadequate space program and so he was lost in space. It was our family’s first real tragedy and we commemorate it annually on November 12 with Daddy In Space Day.
