Today's Favorite Passage

The assignment was to write a culture piece about Middletown and the college. Not knowing the area, and having spent thirty not-too-enlightening minutes on campus thus far, he relied upon one bit of knowledge he did posses.
From hanging around with his dad, who was on first name basis with too many, bartenders were always a good source of local news, scandal, and hype. Or as his dad would say, fly-covered crap. In the afternoon or very late at night when they weren't busy, they were always willing to talk your ear off.

Two Brothers Two Shadows, coming soon.

  1. Fly-covered crap, that is vividly honest! I read a funny but blunt comment today, (a friend wrote inside a book!) "New York is a sucked orange!" can you imagine, Ralph Waldo Emerson said that. But the visuals of a sucked out orange and big city New York slays me!
