New Story: World Cup

July 2, 2014

It's been quite some time since I've had the opportunity to contribute anything to SOL, but this story came to me in such perfect clarity that I felt compelled to write it down. Three thousand words and a few hours later, here we are.

The parody is very much inspired by what is happening right now: the football World Cup is constantly on the television, watched avidly by my family, and I am doing some work in sports journalism myself, so this is a kind of venting of frustration, on several levels.

I hope you enjoy it… and I hope that I have the opportunity this summer to finish off a third story, which has long been in the editing process.
