I went to get tested for eyeglasses. The optician’s office was inside a large department store, in an out-of-the-way location, and was generally not very busy. It was a warm day, and as I walked in, the attendant, a young woman, was running about the office with a fly swatter. She didn’t see me right away and, just as I heard her say “damn flies!”, she turned around, blushed, and said “I don’t know where they’re all coming from! I DID take a shower today.”
Well, that made my day.
Charming, to say the least.
Lee Dunn has been writing since the age of 18, but found that work got in the way for the ensuing 48 years. In his home town of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, he reveled in his independence at an early age, and spent as much time as he could exploring the city’s Arts scene. He was introduced to poetry and prose by the works of two literary giants, namely J.R.R. Tolkien and J.W. Lennon and thence fell in love with the written word. His work includes poetry, short fiction, and personal essays, and ranges in theme from the surreal to the horrific, nostalgic, and themes on the human condition. He has been published on Spillwords.com, The Dark Poets Club, Journal of Undiscovered Poets, Crepe & Penn Literary magazine, and the Shelburne Free Press.
