Great story, Felicia, very reminiscent of Ray Bradbury. Some wonderful lines like: “ We pictured an existence free of Republicans, Christian fundamentalists, global warming, telemarketers, reality TV shows, eyeliner, stamps, parking tickets, kale, and junk mail.” The inclusion of kale is perfect. A frightening forecast, all in all, but very possible and ultimately devastating whatever the outcome (whether we keep our eyes or not!) Really enjoyed this. You should also put in in Literati Magazine. Renée (publisher) would love this too!

I did a poor imitation of Don Draper for 40 years before writing my first novel. I'm currently in the final stages of a children's book. Lucky me.
