Indignation, Exasperation, & Love
Copyright 1996 - Greg Bulmash - All Rights Reserved


Note: For personal reasons I'm forced to go with a re-run tonight (the first re-run I can recall doing in a regular issue). But it's real old and most of you probably haven't seen it. For those who have, I offer my apologies. For those who haven't... just pretend it's new.

During the pursuit and completion of my degree in Creative Writing, I learned three things about short stories.

  1. They must have a distinct beginning, middle, and end.
  2. There must be conflict or tension
  3. The main character must undergo a change or have a realization

Keeping that formula in mind, I have written three short stories which I believe sum up my last relationship.

INDIGNATION

"I resent that."
"No you don't."
"Yeah, I guess you're right."

EXASPERATION

"I can't take any more of this."
"Yes you can."
"Yeah, I guess you're right."

LOVE

"I love you."
"No you don't."
"Yeah, I guess you're right."

Need I say more?
