Dinty’s on Jefferson Street

by Tony Press

Every Tuesday that summer, Aggie and Jeanne met at noon outside Dinty's. After a quick hug, they entered the diner, but not before twisting their wedding rings so they appeared to be mere pieces of jewelry. But, whether this act was from fear of theft, as some of the men inside were rather sketchy, or to hide their own marriages, it was not clear. And, if the latter, were they attempting to fool the men or themselves? That, too, remained unclear. Until it wasn't.


Tony Press tries to pay attention and sometimes he does.
