Short Story (flash fiction) of the day, The Two Davises and the Rug by Lydia Davis

“Like a tropical storm, I, too, may one day become ‘better organized.”
― Lydia Davis, The Collected Stories of Lydia Davis

The mola we bought at the estate sale.

Today’s story is from the master of the flash form, Lydia Davis. It’s a little odd – not a lot happens, nobody dies (horribly) and the characters, both named Davis… which is also the author’s name, have a lot of trouble making decisions.

I think the story is an illustration of what life really is all about. So sad.
