A Bad First Impression



“How have you been...since...well, you know.”

“I've been keeping busy.”


Besides being a story of all dialogue, this story is also written without adjectives.

“Yeah. Have to make it up to my parents after that impression you gave them Saturday.”

“Come on now, It is not like I was—“

“Really? Because I seem to remember you were an ass after those beers.”


“I mean, don't get me wrong, I love you Danny.”

“I love you too Trace.”

“But you have to get your drinking under control.”

“...I know. And I will.”

“How can I believe you though? You've said that before.”

“I know I have. But...I joined AA.”

“Wow...I...I don't know what to say.”

“You don't have to say anything. Just know that I love you Trace. I am doing this for you.”

“I love you too Danny.”
