Flash Epistle Number One
Mike Essig

“Oh the weather outside is frightful…”

Helluva line for a Christmas carol. Yeah; I uttered the “C” word.

For what it’s worth, despite the ice box you call home and hang out in like a side of beef, your words always warm my life.

So if that kindles a brief moment of warmth in your New Year’s Day, then I’m happy to have struck the match.

NOTE: striking the keys of a Royal manual typewriter for your works generates nearly 50 BTUs/hr. While not quite up there with calisthenics or sex (is there a difference?), at least your fingers may survive the brutal weather.
