This week, I have another flash fiction story published at CHEAP POP. It’s called “Sixty-six” and it includes a few details from my early childhood in Yuma, Arizona, Star Wars cards, and petty theft. But it’s fiction, so I take things to an unreal place.
Every time he took some, Darryl headed straight down to Pic ’n’ Save to buy more Star Wars cards. There were seven in a pack, along with a sticker, and a piece of bubble gum that he always threw out. A complete set was sixty-six cards plus eleven stickers. He had all the stickers and sixty-five of the cards. He just needed one more.
