We writers use words to capture life. No secret there; but it is not an easy job.
Earlier today, I walked to Armand’s in Little Italy. It was sunny and mild (70s). Life was all around me: people walking, jogging, traffic, workmen at work on a roof; I’ve noticed that young women and not so young women have taken to wearing pants that seem to be tights. Maybe they are tights. The shape, bounce and wiggle of the female butt is on full display in Pittsburgh. I wonder if this fashion is popular in other cities too or is it just something particular to Pittsburgh.
I sat at the bar in Armand’s, drank beer and talked to Joe the bartender. Several other people sat at the bar.
Beyond the big window, Liberty Avenue was alive with people and sunshine. I got one last mug of beer and then a six-pack of beer to go.
I should do a column on beer for this blog. I should subscribe to a magazine for beer drinkers.
I had not eaten anything. So, I was looking forward to a bowl of hot ham and lima beans that I recently cooked in my crock pot.
This writer walked back home, eager to get back to work.
The Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette is a blog of creative writing and brazen sexuality. It is published near the University of Pittsburgh.
