“How do you know these things about Italian guys, Ma?”
“Because I married one.”
The GLVWG Write Stuff Anthology is now available on Kindle and eBook format, for the first time, including my short story:
CHANGE FOR DOMENICK
Never go on your first date with a guy who asked your mother out first.
Especially if she has this near-psychic ability to pinpoint a person’s true character down to the bone within two minutes of meeting somebody. My mother was weird that way. Half the time she was mistaken for a giggly twenty-five year-old. She loved low-budget sci-fi movies from the 1950s and believed Bigfoot was out there. But when it came to a person’s character, she had your number the minute she saw you.
My buddy Marianne’s Sweet 16 party was at Pat and Jim’s restaurant in Patchogue, Long Island. The party ran long. Ma waited for me in the lobby, with her long Mediterranean-looking little-girl hair; as usual, smiling like a six year-old.
A D.J. named Domenick packed up his light board and cables in the front of the restaurant.
“Ey,” he said to Ma, unplugging things. “You missed the party!”
“Me?” she said. “I’m just a taxi service.”
