When a guy’s got a job to do he does it.
Even with nothing to sell.
Literally, nothing. Which kinda makes it tough.
He does it even when he and the lovely young buyer across the table would both rather play games.
Not mind games. Computer games.
Which kinda makes it tougher.
Failure? Not an option. Not now, not ever. Solution? Promise the world.
And then deliver.
Toughest of all.
A humor short story about on-the-job distraction. First publication anywhere.
