I had sort of forgotten about a book of short stories being published with one of my stories in it until I got an email with an invitation to a Book Release Party! I imagined getting fitted for my tuxedo for the event. Leave it a bit loose in the crotch for dancing.
Visions of my red carpet arrival danced in my head.
Yes, thank you, I’ll have a drink from the champagne fountain.
On second thought, maybe I’ll wait until they get the champagne tower finished.
Oh well, as long as there are appetizers. Crowd closer, boys. I can only reach so far.
And then I read that the “party” would be held in a meeting room in a public library. Sounds like a blast.
Maybe I’ll bring my buddy, Dewey Decimal, and at least I’ll have someone to be quiet with. I’ll let you know.
