Until Tuesday, Forty One

Safa Bakırcı

Making my way down the half flight, I find the hallway while gathering my bearings.

A gentleman exiting the green room heads my way then stops a short distance before me. “What the hell happened to you? Rough interview?” Then he laughs and walks away.

I duck into the lavatory to find I look like a disheveled mess. I finger comb my hair, wash my face and do the best I’m able with my clothing.

The reflection in the mirror asks, interview?

I wonder what position I was hoping to fill. Damn if I can remember anything.

I head for the Famous room and as I cross the threshold, I’m met by staff members creating a wall of bodies.

“Sorry Sir, your assigned Tuesday has passed.” One states.

“He’s with me. Let him pass.” A familiar voice chimes in.




Wow! Did you notice that? It was your day flying by. This publication is your place to enjoy stories of 150 words or fewer about plants and people, wild animals and pets, gardens and food, how-to and how-not-to — written to inform and delight. Did I mention humor?
