The Best of times

By Jeff Hite

“It was the best of times it was the worst of times. Isn’t that what they always say?”
“I don’t know Jed, all I know is that this ain’t the best of times. But then again, I have seen a lot worse. Mean remember that tornado what ripped through the trailer park?”
“Yeah but this is worse than those grasshoppers last fall.”
“I told you those were locusts and that was pretty bad.”
“But the frogs weren’t bad. We ate like kings for weeks after that.”
“But it’s Sunday, we got no beer and no gas.”
“It is bad Joe.”
