Nothing Escapes Darlene

by Gita Smith

“Today’s special is grilled kosher salami, sunnyside up eggs, buttered toast, coffee included.”

Marty flicked a last glance at the menu, then nodded. Darlene registered his spit colored eyes.

“Need a morning paper, Hon?”

“Paper napkins. Yes.”

Darlene nodded confirmation to a waiting Agent Betty at the grill.

Alien Outlanders never survived the salami special.
