It's a little amazing that I've read and discussed three hundred short stories up to now (that's actually a misnomer, I've read many many more than three hundred, but I've written these wee write-ups on three hundred). It's also a little distressing that there are only sixty-odd days left in this year, since I'm fairly certain I started this project a few weeks ago. It really is true that time feels like it's going faster the older you get. Ah well.
I'm looking ahead at the crunch of retail Christmas and I'm already feeling it - these last two months are going to be tricky. This may soon become a breakfast tradition - something I do quickly while I'm having my morning nosh before work. We'll see. Or maybe I'll have to "get ahead" and have write-ups ready to go. Hrm.
Either way, only sixty-four days left in 2013. How's it been for you?
"Mistakes Were Made," by Tristan Cole
Back to the hot dishes from The Dirty Diner today. Tristan Cole is the king of the tales about insatiable submissive fellows, and "Mistakes Were Made" is no exception.
Here we have a man whose family keeps swooping in and taking his restaurants from under him whenever he manages to make a new success. This man has a boyfriend (and waiter) who is - put simply - one of said insatiable bottom types, and when he starts to realize this (via a web history search and a few other clues), it gels with something his boyfriend says - that he should start a restaurant your family would be too embarrassed or scandalized to own - and a new dessert is soon available on the menu.
Sexy, erotically charged, and over-the-top, this story is superlative Tristan Cole.
