A Short Story--pointless as most
She taught French in the high school.
Even bought the cheeses and wine and
a Citroen. But the locals couldn't fix
the car, so she traded it in for a Ford.
And the same day, also traded her on-again
off-again for Kiffy Ners of Ners' Hardware.
In to buy a delivery truck.
And didn’t those two rush into a quick personal
deal? Temporary Insanity! Or Love.
Two daughters later, and she actually drags him
to France! Old Foursquare and Nothing Fancy.
But he takes to it! Loves it! Especially partial
to cognac, a necessity since the girls are
a cramp in the balls.
Both married now, but that hasn't changed.
