8thdayfiction

…and on the 8th day, micro fiction was published on some dude's blog.

Small Talk

Dave turned to his cousin as they sat there watching the game.

“You know, they call baseball “America’s Pastime”, but sometimes I think football really deserves that title these days. It sure seems to be the more popular sport of the two, don’t you think?”

His cousin turned to him, stared at Dave for few seconds with his mouth slightly agape, then replied, “But…I thought America’s pastime was, like, what happened yesterday, or when Jimmy Carter was President, or World War II, or Ben Franklin.”

“Well, no–I…never mind. I was thinking of something else.”

They both went back to staring at the TV.

Dave took a long pull off his bottle of beer and remembered once again why it was a bad idea to try to make small talk with Wendell.
