Across the street somebody had delirium tremens

30 August 2015

Across the street somebody had delirium tremens in the front yard and a mixed quartet tore what was left of the night into small strips and did what they could to make the strips miserable. While this was going on the exotic brunette didn’t move more than one eyelash.

  2. Wow, great writing.

    I liked the line Brendan liked, but this one was my favorite:

    “…a mixed quartet tore what was left of the night into small strips and did what they could to make the strips miserable.”
