More than a year ago I had a writing “homework” assignment: write a story about anything, so long as it was within the framework of the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver. I ended up with a short story entitled ‘Couver Tales.
A man hanging out in a watering hole encounters a former skating rival – in which the two faced off with one another in a prior Olympic year. A few sports get mentioned, and maybe something will be learned in the end by the reader.
I should be writing, but I felt reposting this story on my Figment account would be slightly current and topical. It’s not new, so it won’t end up on my “batting order” setup in the sidebar. To give the story a read, click here or on the below image.
