From the Mind of Jonathon Arntson: free writing piece #1

Dear Readers,
This is an unprecedented moment here at Jon's Life. I am posting, for the first time, a story of mine. 
I have been writing short stories and flash fiction all month and experimenting with all sorts of media. The following is a short story I wrote in a cafe. I had no direction. It took five minutes and I was not excited about it. I got home, typed it into Word and then decided to try something. I chose to post this particular story for two reasons. I adore it's simplicity and it's the shortest story I have written. 
(I believe clicking the image will make it large enough to comfortably read. 
If not PLEASE let me know, since in reality I have no idea what I am doing.)
Thank you, all of you, for the unadulterated support you continue to give me. That support has inspired persistence and now I feel accomplished.

  4. Clicking didn't enlarge the text on my computer, but my eyesight is 20/20 (with contacts in place). Enjoyed the interchange between these two delightful characters.

  5. I heart your mind. I wish I could go in there and sit on an old gold velvet couch and have some chips and look around.

  10. Sometimes the words that pour out while you're sitting in a cafe are pleasantly surprising, huh? We need to see more banter from your mind! Keep the stories coming.
