Got back from SLS Lithuania yesterday and felt like (re)posting this story.

I wrote the ending in the basement of the Alumni Center where I was paid to stuff envelopes, take inventory of paper, and forge signatures. I quit that job my senior year in college. Haven’t quit writing, yet.

    I just read this as a Weekend Read from KROnline. What an excellent story. I was so taken with how you managed the form, the repetition.
