Couch, Remote, Beer

by Tom Mahony

Friday evening I collapsed on the couch, cracked a beer, and fondled the remote. The week had been disastrous, next week looked even worse. But for now: couch, remote, beer. A pizza on the way. I sank into the supple fabric. Ah, yes.

Where there's life, there's hope.
A succinct, super six, Tom.

Yes, the simple, direct, to-the-point sixes are my favorites. Nicely done, Tom. And boy can I relate!

Liked this a lot. Fondling the remote, title, everything. Just excellent.
