So I bought this book, The County that Defiantly Sleeps: Stories from Clapford County, Indiana, by Simon McKim.
Why? Because I know his family, and they’re good people. Also, because I remember when he was a little boy in my mother’s Sunday School group, The Church Mice. He was way funny, and a thoughtful, insightful kid.
Now that I have the book, I see that he’s only increased and refined those qualities since I knew him.
He says that “there is nothing better for getting through the week” than reading a short story.
Nothing except perhaps a scotch on the rocks, but I find short stories are easier on the liver in the long run.
I don’t agree with his choice of beverage (I’m a Bourbon fancier), but I can’t fault his logic.
