Patient Impatience



#FlashTag @monologging Tim dialed Connie again. No answer.

#FlashTag@ The bartender filled his glass. “Put the phone down, Tim,” he said. “You gotta give Connie some space now.” 

#FlashTag @monologging Tim gulped his beer, spilling suds down his chin. “It’s my fault,” he admitted.

#FlashTag@ The bartender stared intently at Tim and his beer-soaked suit. “What are you going to do about it?”

#FlashTag@ “Nothing I can do!” Tim raged, slamming his glass on the counter & splashing the dregs. “The cat is dead.”

#FlashTag@NairobiCollins A door slams open and Connie appears wet and bleeding. “I slipped on a cat toy.” “Karma” Tim burped from the bar.
