The New Neighbors

No one knew exactly who they were or where they had come from.  They had moved into the house next door to us in the middle of the night.  They were a nice family – there were the parents, a brother, a sister and a whole bunch of cousins, aunts and uncles.  They also had a pet chair named Murray.  They kept Murray in a special little house in the backyard.  He was a friendly chair, sometimes we’d pet him through the fence.  We asked mom if we could get a pet chair but she just poured oatmeal on our heads and kept licking the curtains.

My new short story - Going South - is part of the anthology For the Road published by the Columbus Creative Cooperative. I’m also a two-time winner of the Thurber Treat Award for humor writing and my plays have been produced everywhere from a New York City stage to a Louisville elevator.

    It’s so few people who can find the perfect name for their chair. I have to give these people credit on that!

    I’m laughing out loud at this, and I can’t think of any funny comment to make in return.

    Your writing is just plain FUNNY!
