In college (and after) my buddy Dacodah and I would drink a lot of rum, take our clothes off, and place one foot on an elevated surface. Then we’d place our hands on our hips and take a picture.
We haven’t done it in a while, but it inspired this story about those times, and what it means to be thrown into a growing up you were in the whole time. It’s like a whiplash of an awakening.
This, again, is part of that same series of flash auto-fictions I’ve written. Hopefully one day they’ll find themselves in a book.
Thanks to Jared Silvia, who provided wonderful notes, and thanks to Burrow Press for publishing this one on Fantastic Floridas. I’m excited to have this one out in the world.
