By request: No disturbances. No interruptions. No obligations. No children. No elderly. No friends. No significant others. No phone calls. No detours on the way to work. No surprises. No changes.

Also by request: “Ahh, yes. Dinner reservations for one, sir?” the maître d’ asked.

Lou smiled.

    No, I haven’t, but I shall do so. Thanks for the recommendation.

    I voted this one down, but it is more personal preference. I’ll temper this comment with the observation that I don’t read much flash fiction (hardly any at all), so take from this what you will; one thing I liked about your other stories as compared to this one is the element, even briefly, of narrative. I couldn’t connect with this one, I think, due to the style.

    Hi Christy,

    Thanks for commenting. This one is in a weird style–some might argue that it’s not an actual story at all (just a vignette) due to its lack of plot. But it was a fun little experiment none-the-less.
