Stories I Wrote, Etc. 3: (250=1)

 Stories I Wrote, Etc. 3:

What I think about when I think about Miserlou by Dick Dale and the Deltones:

If you look kind of out the corner of your eyes-ssh, sorta, you can pretend you're driving through a brand new place you never been to.

Like let's say you never gone to San Francisco.

Ready?

Okay: never gone. Now today as you walk outside for lunch, paper bag in your hand, sandwich in the bag and a half-hour for grub, look sorta funny at the trees and make-believe you're in San Francisco because if you look just right, things look unfamiliar sometimes, you'll see.

Unfamiliar like how last night you woke up and said “dune buggy” out loud clear as day.

What? You asked yourself.

And your wife said go back to sleep honey you're dreaming?

Instead you went into Baby's room. She was breathing soft, so you listened a while, mabye touched the little pink bunny on the sleeper and thought:

what if I'm a dune buggy racer who just got hurt up, an accident, broke my head and this is a hallucination?

But that ain't what happened.


Still, you can pretend you're actually in San Fran, eating baloney. Later on you look at a dune buggy on Craigslist. $1,400, who's gonna pay that much?. Then go for ice cream tonight. Get the double scoop, buddy, you've earned it. On the way home, squint at the road: you're in Los Angeles as the sun sets over palm trees.

*************************************************************************************

In 250=1, I write stories that are exactly 250 words long, including the title.  And some of them, like this, I dictate as I drive to and from work, so there's that.  Here's a list of all the 250-word stories I've written.

Except you can't say you're in San Francisco if you say "San Fran," because no one in San Francisco would actually say that. They hate it.

That must be a flaw with the Matrix. Stupid computers can't get anything right!

If I'm in San Francisco, make it a double scoop of frozen yogurt and I'm sold. And if I can't have steamed crab legs for lunch, then it's just not going to happen. That's the only thing I truly love about SF, and I can't pretend a bologna sandwich is crab legs. Even as a writer I just don't have that kind of imagination.
