A Normal Day

When I went to town ahead of the blizzard,

I ran into an old acquaintance and found

myself standing in the feed store

listening to an impromptu Pentecostal sermon

and getting a fairly accurate psychic reading

while being empathetic to the chaos of her life.

The store was out of corn.

Just a normal day.

This is my contribution to this week’s Friday Flash (Non)Fiction 55.  Write a story or poem in exactly 55 words and then go tell G-Man.

Winter

This week’s theme for You Capture is Outside.  Lucky for me, we had a blizzard this past weekend!  Before that we had only had a few flurries, and it didn’t look very much like winter.  It was just brown and dead–not very good for interesting pictures.
