Short Stories Based on Small Objects

By Buck Igloos

We was outside in back of the house. It was summer.

Danny was throwing away some stuff and what was in the box was a series of four cheesecake glasses. You poured your drink in there and the gals– well, their tops came off. I couldn’t believe Danny wanted to get rid of something like that. So, I spoke up.13041275_1197803680240752_4026416246387457056_o

“Let me have them glasses, Danny,” I said.

Danny looked them over very slowly as though he were trying to find some mysterious and hidden meaning in them. A plane went over.

“Pretty girls,” he said.

I agreed. I was starting to sweat. I could hear a car start out front. Then footsteps around the side. It was Pappy.

“Let’s go, boy,” he said. Danny didn’t say nothing.

That was the last I ever saw of them glasses.

Further “Short Stories Based on Small Objects” will appear in future issues.
