Ultra Short from our last event in April: *Stranger in a Strange Land*

You know ‘em and love ‘em. Ultra Shorts…

from our last event  held in April, at Stonefly Brewery : ‘Stranger in a Strange Land’

“On our 3rd date we got locked in the Milwaukee Art Museum! We were in a far gallery, and without warning all the lights went out. We slowly felt our way past sculptures, pedestals holding breakable things. We got to sit on the furniture behind the ropes! Almost art thieves.”

The Theme: Now or Never

“It’s now or never as I ride my 16 year old self, 10 miles, on my cheap 10 Speed all the way to a 17 yr old boy’s house. I …stop. Walk up. Now!….or never. I get back up on my bike and ride those 10 miles back home.”

– Mel Kingston
