Flash Fiction: Let Me Tell You a Story

by Chris McGinty

Let me tell you about the time I was traveling down river on the old steamboat. Actually, that seems like a story better suited for another time. I would rather tell you about the time that I worked as an informant against the mob and how it almost cost me my life. As I’m thinking about that, perhaps there is too much that could still put me in danger. There was the time I took my ex wife on a cruise. Nah, that just opens up old wounds. Let me instead tell you about the time that I successfully scammed a roulette table. Well, that might put me in some trouble too. Let me tell you about the time I rescued a dozen kittens from a burning building. Everyone loves a good kitten story‚Ķ
