The Right Brothers

My friend Joanne was concerned, if I stopped going to Starbucks each morning, my stories would also stop.

Well Jo, there’s a tale on every corner here in Hitsvilles U.S.A.

I was running in the park, yes…she’s back, her leg all healed, a little slow, I mean turtles are passing me, but I’m out there in all my pokey glory.

I see two stocky men jogging in front of me, punching the air like prizefighters, so similar from the back, they look like matching sectionals that could be pushed together.

As I approach, I hear they’re having an argument over a gal named Sal.

One says, “Why do ya care about her, she’s been wit everybody.  Sally ain’t no nice girl, and ya know I’m right.”

I think she’s nice,” said the other, “and pretty too, and you ain’t right, and I’m askin her out.”

“Even though she’s gone down on everything but the Titanic?”

That made me laugh, as I started to pass them, seeing, they were identical twins.

I smile over my shoulder.  The one who likes Sally, smiles back, the other, does not.

“Can we help you?” said Mr. Snotty.  “Like, why you smilin like that?”

“Oh, I’m happy, just to be out here.  Had an injury that laid me up.”

“Yeah, I hate when that happens,” said the nice one.

“Well, have a good day,” I said, escaping quickly.

Suddenly I hear, “Hey, you married?”

“No, I mean yes,” pondering a one-two, what are ya doing later, punch.

“Dontcha know?”

“Oh I forget.  You know how it is.”

“That ain’t good,” said Snotty.  “See bro, Sally’s married, and she fa-gets too.”

Joanne, as you can see, you have nothing to worry about.



About Susannah Bianchi

I'm just a girl who likes to write slightly on slant. I've had a career in fashion, dabbled in film and to be honest, I don't like talking about myself. Now my posts are another matter so I will let them speak for themselves. My eBooks, A New York Diary, Model Behavior: Friends For Life and Notes From A Working Cat can be found on Thanks.

  1. Ok, Sally you get around!

  2. I think you could populate a very interesting book just with characters you come across in real life. Even in a short piece like this, you’ve already painted two vivid, realistic characters. You’re so good at that sort of thing. 🙂


  3. Your life is richer than most, and you certainly know how to write it for the rest of us. Identical twins, no less! Complete with New York accents! I wish I could have heard the Connecticut accent say, “No. Yes. I forget.” You are priceless!

    Fantastic line: “Even though she’s gone down on everything but the Titanic?” I basically love Sally.

    It’s a sorry state of affairs when a girl has to lie about her marital status to keep the creeps at bay. I don’t blame you for doing so, I just find it sad. 😦

    Susannah, you couldn’t be running too slowly if you passed the debating brothers. It sounds like you’re just a girl who can’t say no, I mean yes, ha ha!


  7. Sally sounds fun … lol! I can just picture these 2 with their Popeye physics in my head. One just has to smile.
    Glad to hear the gams are back in business, even if only at a snail’s pace.

  8. I was never able to “forget” I was married, though I wanted to, often.
    Now, it’s nice to say, “No.” I wish I was asked more…lol
