"I want to meet a man who can say something original."
So begins the story. It is a compelling start, for who of us would not wish the same? And so I was instantly hooked, and my mind raced with possibilities that might follow. Even though the ensuing narrative would surprise me, that isn't a bad thing. Who wants to read something entirely predictable?
Even so, I soon had a handle on the character and her situation, inasmuch as the story seemed already familiar, being reminiscent of one J.D. Salinger might have written, updated to the modern age.
I could go on and expound and explicate, but the story is short enough. Read it for yourself!
