Who Could Ask for More? by Brad Rose
Just tuned-up my flamethrower, otherwise it wouldn’t be a fair fight. God knows, it’s not easy working in the service sector. Pretty soon, I’m going to reverse my polarities, too. Shake things up a little. Have you ever wondered what’s under all those islands? They look like they’ve lost a lot of weight. If you asked them, they’d probably blame it on someone else. Of course, before the invention of answers, everyone just had questions. Mostly, they talked to themselves. I’m not complaining, mind you. I mean, who doesn’t like a department store holiday? Summer breezes, grass skirts, the hula, no criminal charges pending. By the way, the animals are looking out for something upright and furless that might shoot and eat them. Close your eyes. So many great memories.
