The Makeeto Lesson

by Peter Farmer

Makeeto opened a place called "Teeny's" with high hopes; he poured his entire life savings into it, plus loans from friends and family. "Teeny's" was an ice-skating nightclub for dwarfs. Makeeto's main rule was “NO ONE OVER FOUR FEET ALLOWED.” The dwarf bouncers he hired would've enforced the rule; problem was, no one ever showed. "Teeny's" flopped; it closed after a month - everyone laughed, called Makeeto foolish. But at least he tried, right?

I have read this story every night for the past week. I still don't understand it, but it makes me feel sad. I could be Makeeto.
