Micro Monday: “From the Mouth of the Master”

I took another sip and said, “I don’t get it. One woman hasn’t left you yet, but you already have her replacement.” I looked over at Susan, now chatting with her friend, oblivious to us both. “And when you run into them, they’re always so happy to see you. How do you do it?”

Engler took a long pull on his cigarette, held it, did a slow exhale. Then he leaned toward me conspiratorially. “That’s the secret, my friend,” he said. “Know this and learn. The trick is to make them think that they’re the ones who want to leave.”

Writers, join the parade. Drop me a line. Get linkage.

Listening:
The road is empty subway lies ahead
There’s is no music all the sounds have gone dead
The day is misty there’s no life around
Cause there’s something wrong in this town
