Yes, it’s 100 Word Story Time Again. You can vote for this story (and hear/read the rest) at the 100 Word Stories site. As mentioned in the audio, I’ve got a story in Timeshares [Amazon | B&N | BooksAMillion | Penguin ] that comes out on the 2nd! How cool is that?

“Oh,” I said. “You figured it out.”
