Stuck in a Closet on a Friday Night was first written in 2001. I recently found the handwritten story in a pile of old papers. It is the second story in what I planned to be a trilogy of “This is so Stupid” stories. The first story in the series is called ‘Existential Drag in Forest’ and is available in my short story collection “Where the Fnords Linger” on Amazon or Kindle.
