“Happy New Year” a fifty-word story by Mary Steer

“Happy New Year!”
Mary Steer

In this, my “Year of Yes,” I’ve:
 – got multiple tatts and piercings
 – bungee-jumped
 – sky-dived (dove?)
 – sat through a live opera
 – adopted a dog
 – and twelve cats
 – been a surrogate for an infertile friend
Next up: my Year of NO.

Mary Steer only has her ears pierced. She will be ringing in 2018 with a long story, “The Yarnabomber,” appearing in The Ocotillo Review. It will be available for purchase by mid-January at kallistogaiapress.org. You can read more of Mary’s work at marysteer.com.
