“You know what I think? I think you been eyeballing my girl.”

“Leave Lenny alone, Billy. He’s just being friendly.”

“I’ve dropped bigger lugs than you. Don’t make me spit out my bubblegum.”

Twenty years later, Nancy and Leonard were married, with two kids. Billy, who had never heard of Judo before that day, was selling used cars in Tucson.

Three Line Conversations were inspired by Haikus. I borrowed the form of three lines, but without the syllable counts. And dialog instead of poetry.

Old bones. Young heart. Focusing on a wide variety of creativity. @markstarlin
