2 more shots!

In the last couple of days, the 100 shots of short challenge has consumed whatever little reading I used to do, leaving no time for me to catch up withย  OT ’09. I read 2 more short stories, bringing the count to 10 down, 90 more to go.

These are the two short stories that I grabbed:

9th shot of short: On the weekends sometimes – Ben Greenman

I have Veens to thank for this suggestion. This story is available online here.

This story is about a couple called Panos and Annie, whose marriage is seemingly not going very good. Panos has a good friend called Boyd, who is in love with Annie. The story is written in the form of a series of dialogues, and makes for a nice read. It left me feeling kind of sad.

10th shot of short: At the barber’s – Anton Chekhov

I found this story online here during a random search.

It is about a barber called Makar Kuzmitch Blyostken, and an acquaintance of his called Erast Ivanitch Yagodov, who has a daughter Anna Erastovna, for whom Makar has sentiments. It makes for an entertaining read, but is a sad story at the same time.

I’ll be back soon with more! And yes, I should get back to serious reading for OT ’09!
