Well, I realised it has been ages since I read a short story, and took immediate action to rectify the situation. It was fun going through some short stories once again (Something that I had taken to doing on a regular basis some time back!).
Here are the ones I read:
The Kiss by Guy De Maupassant
This story is in the form of a letter, from an old aunt Collette to her niece, advising her on how to love and how not to love, how to kiss and how not to kiss her man. It is quite cute, the way the aunt advises the young lass not to be too generous with her affections and to kiss in a lady-like manner. I wouldn’t say I agreed with everything, but I did enjoy reading this little story.
Death By Scrabble by Charlie Fish
This is an intriguing story about a man and his wife playing Scrabble on a hot Sunday afternoon. The man is apparently mad at his wife. It is interesting to see how the couple goes about forming words on the Scrabble board.
I read these short stories for the 100 Shots of Short Challenge – Shot #77 and 78.
Recommendations for good short stories are warmly invited!!!
