Occupational Hazard #1LinerWeds

This one-liner comes to be courtesy of a text from #4 Daughter, the amazing Sara Marian, an archaeologist.

Today is Janie Day, when my late friend’s brother and some of her friends and friends of her friends meet for lunch in her honor. This happens once a month, since she and I met once a month. So I texted Sara to ask if she would like to come, as she knew and loved Jane, too.

And Sara texted back and said,

O! If we’re not digging Mr. Feeney* up that day, I’ll be there!

A WRITING PROMPT BASED ON MY POST: A character’s unusual work commitment interferes with their social plans.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

      Mr. Feeney is probably getting more attention now than when he was alive. He’s certainly being treated with extreme respect. And he got to ride in a car, carefully contained and held in the lap of a beautiful archaeologist. Not too shabby, for a dead guy.
