So. I bought some story cubes to add a new level of difficulty to postcard writing. Thing was I had a whole boat load of them. So I picked up a 20 sided die at Red Castle Games near me and invented a new game. Roll all the dice. But what ever the 20 sided dice reads is how many story dice cubes I have to incorporate. This is LITERALLY the first roll I ever did.
Postcard #83: Fasting
03/18/16 T.M. US-3906519
10 Cadillacs planted in a wheat field nose first with their tops facing West. This can be seen off U.S. Hwy. 66 west of Amarillo, Texas. Each car represents the change in tail fin styles for the Cadillac from 1949-1963
The door of the Middletown Diner jingled and I looked up from my postcard. Andrew was coming back inside. He walked over and threw his jacket on the inside of the booth “That was fast.” I said looking up. “Yeah. I only had half of it. Felt bad. You aren’t eating I might as well keep you company.” The waitress walked over. Her pad already out. Drew was placing his half cigarette on a folded napkin. She turned to him first. “What can I get you, hun?” A common greeting in New Jersey. “Uh, cheese fries and a coffee.” She scribbled something in waitress in her pad. She was middle aged. Greying hair at the roots. “How about you?” “Nothing.” “Nothing?” She repeated back. “I am fasting for Lent.” I heard how stupid sounded. Like a vegan dying for attention. She turned to Drew and said, “You must be the Jew.” We were aghast which she interpreted as not understanding her joke. She continued…”Your cigarette. You only smoked half.” “Oh.” We said. “I’ll be back with your order.”
