I almost made a big mistake here. I almost didn't read this story. Nothing in the title caught me. Nothing in the synopsis really grabbed me. I haven't previously seen enough stories by this author to have started automatically reading her(?) work - though "Best Served Warm and Buttered" was a lot of fun. In the end it was the author's blog entry that caused me to give the story a try.

Folks, we have a winner! Daisy might be any waitress at the corner cafe in a small town, John just another worker at a refinery that keeps the town alive. Two ordinary people whose story is told here with both poignancy and passion.

The story is technically top shelf. The author uses perhaps a few more adjectives than I'd have suggested but they're well chosen and evocative.

There's as much sex as I can imagine comfortably fitting into a story this short that is most definitely not a stroke story. The sex is presented well and fits the story seamlessly.

The real surprise of this story is how the author manages to fit so much plot into such a short story without ever once making it feel artificial. It's tightly written - everything is important to the story - but it never feels forced or sparse.
