55 Word Fiction

Anna's call for 55 word 'nanofiction.'

My stab at it:

Vikas soon learned how to size up the customers. The couple in the corner booth were whispering about their check, louder than they thought: "Could you take it? I promise I'll pay you back. Niles has my card; he's coming back on Friday."

Her voice broke. "I think." Was it, or wasn't it, a date?

This sounds a bit like Dan Rhodes' Anthropology, a clever little book containing 101 stories of 101 words each. Some are better than others...but better ones are pure brilliance (not to mention impressive technical achievements).

Greetings to you. I will share this story with you and hope that it brings you one step closer to your Self.

Swami A

Ten patrons wait outside, hoping they will be allowed inside. They are wearing impeccable white dhotis, tied in the traditional manner. Last week, a man used a belt to hold up the cloth. He was asked to leave, even though he explained that as an amputee he should be allowed some concession.
