Didn’t see Lime Green Suburban.
I have done the outrageous conversation ploy before but I typically use it to deflect religious zealots who appear at my door with pamphlets and bibles!
I haven’t been writing quite as much, although I did publish a story about two of my rescue dogs. I wrote most of it last year but didn’t finish until after I put the last of the two dogs to sleep last week. She had a progressive disease that made it impossible for her to stand on her own and walking was becoming more difficult each day. As you can imagine, it was a difficult week. It took all I had to write the last couple of paragraphs for that story and publish it. Now I want to write a final story about her but haven’t had the time.
Also, I am an editor for the SnapShots photography publication. That keeps me busy and I often have posts there — photographs with short narratives.
Always enjoy your work, Sam. I am behind in my reading though. Work has been hectic. I crash at night, falling asleep before I can read anything on Medium!
