king of the road, part five


read the first four parts of the story (and admire the impressive stock photos) here.




Jasper came back out with his lighter out, which we both didn’t like. You didn’t like that he smoked. I didn’t like that he lit other things on fire with it. You didn’t like that, either.

“Okay, let’s roll,” Jasper said. He put on the cape and that time I knew what your look meant. It said: “It’s ninety-seven degrees out and that thing’s made out of polyester and wool.” I only got the ‘polyester and wool’ bit because you talked about it the night before. My look said: “It’s fucking hot out here.”

yes. what an exciting stock photo. it's a close-up of a lighter. but the lighting is right. can't complain about that. and it's got the miniature perspective i love so much.

this is going to be one of those days.
