Description:

#Audio. #Flashfic.  The assignment was to use an obituary to inspire a story.

Excerpt:

The kissing part had been amazing. Forty-seven years of her kisses. Slightly fewer years of weekly trips to the Ocean View Lanes for bowling with their usual group. The group was just couples at first… then it was couples and kids, then the kids grew out of it, then they came back… then it was them and the grandkids and lately… well, lately the group had dwindled. These youngsters didn’t like bowling, The Lanes were gonna close next year, probably. Not enough business.

Show Notes

A Conversation with Chuck Tomasi

He’s one of my favorite podcasters, and a genuinely nice guy. He’ll make you melt when he talks about a particularly meaningful song, and we insult the French.
