Fiction 101

This if for the San Diego CityBeat “Fiction 101” writing contest. In 101 words or less, write a fictional story. I wrote this, & it’s exactly 101 words.

“Tootsie Pop Hope”

Kozalski was a determined neurotic. He peeled grapes, organized his
ties by meaningfulness, and coughed whenever he felt disheartened. An
idealist, he yearned for world peace, and knew one could achieve it by
finding the elusive Tootsie Pop Indian, aiming at a star. One day
Kozalski spotted the rare wrapper on the ground, and gasped in horror
upon closer inspection. The Indian was gone. It was an ethnically and
gender ambiguous person aiming at the star. Tootsie had gone PC.
Kozalski stopped peeling his grapes. His ties lay in a pile. He died a
month later, of an unexplained coughing fit.

El Fin!

…..We’ll have to wait and see what happens to Kozalski and his author.

    As a side note, one of Sake’s paintings has been on the current cover of “City Beat”. I was walking down the street one day (in the early, early month of May?), and I saw Sake on practically every street corner. Kinda surreal.
