Countdown

300th Post!

Ten minutes to midnight Sparrow ran out of the party, leaving everyone’s mouth as open as the front door. The revelers looked at each other with eyes half-hidden under paper party hats and heavy with cheap champagne and momentarily forgot the countdown and the coming new year.

One pair at a time, the eyes stopped asking questions and looked to the back of the room. Stork stood there, beer can half-crushed in his hand. Forty eyes blinked and stared from either side of Sparrow’s wake.

He shrugged and pressed skip.

“I guess that used to be our song,” he said.

  1. Dear Craig,

    Thanks for this episode of that world you so ably populate. There is a wonderful, other-worldly feel to them, yet is is a familiar place and I enjoy visiting.

    Happy New Year.

    Aloha,

    Doug
