Short Story Sunday: S.H. Carlyle’s “Dinner Party Timeout”

sssFirst line: “Sweetheart, I’m trying to help you out there.”

McSweeny’s is always the place to turn for off-kilter humor, and I love this short, strange story by S.H. Carlyle. Relationships are a competitive team sport here, and this sardonic pep talk ends up in an unexpected place.
