Rain blew in from the west that Friday, blanketing the moon with black-bellied clouds sporting fraudulent silver linings. I should’ve gone home then. Crawled back into my hole and pulled the darkness after me.
Maybe if I’d gone home before the rain, no one would’ve died.
We all have those shoulda moments. Winners run with it. Losers let the moment pass. I was too busy losing to think about shoulda’s.
Lake Tahoe, Nevada. Vacation paradise. Gambler’s dream.
