I thought youse was a word unique to Two Rivers, Wisconsin.
Gail Boenning

I have never used youse myself but I’ve always wanted to incorporate it in a story somehow. It’s one of those dialect things that intrigues me.

The name Drinion came to me from the unfinished novel by David Foster Wallace, The Pale King. There’s a character, an IRS agent, actually, who can concentrate to such a high degree that when he listens to someone he can levitate. Always stuck with me for some reason!

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
