Miss Lucy Parker and Other Short Stories
by Q. Kelly
Seven short stories are in this compilation. The lead story is "Miss Lucy Parker."
"Miss Lucy Parker": Miss Lucy Parker is a prim, proper elderly lady. When a Volkswagen Beetle—the new kind, and pink—PINK!—turns onto the winding road that leads to Lucy's farmhouse, Lucy is sure the car's occupants are lost. And that the car contains hippies, because hippies drive Volkswagen Beetles. Lucy plans to tell the hippies to get lost. She has no need for their odd speech, beads and marijuana aroma. Except hippies are not in the car. A woman is, a woman wearing a short, blood-red dress that hugs her body. Thus begins Lucy Parker's great adventure.
"A Weird Situation": Karen does not believe her boyfriend when he tells her that he turns into a woman for seven hours every day.
"The Interview": The person interviewing Debby has a giant booger. Should she tell him and risk not getting the job?
"First Day at Work": A security guard's first day at a bank has repercussions for him and three workers.
"Every Day": A man struggles every day to follow through on a promise to himself.
"The Doctor": A doctor salivates at the prospect of delivering bad news to a twelve-year-old girl and her mother.
"Guardian Angel": Gabriel fancies himself a guardian angel. But is he really?
* "The Doctor" has child molestation references.
