Song for Ferguson
Year of the Horse Contest. Never explain, never apologize. 55 words.
"You just revealed a side of yourself I didn't know you had."
"Which side would that be?"
"My bad. Should I hum 'The Missouri Waltz' on my way out?"
"To prove or to disprove?"
"Neither. Just to do it."
"Don't hum. Whistle."
He hums. Nobody laughs or tries to sing along.
