TEXAS JACK by Bart Hopkins

Texas jack[Yawn: verb    1. to open the mouth somewhat involuntarily with a prolonged, deep inhalation and sighing or heavy exhalation, as from drowsiness or boredom.

2.  Informal. something so boring as to make one yawn]

This is the story of a young man with a perfect wife and perfect kids and the perfect job and a perfect life.   The end.

Oh, yeah, there are the barely disguised resentful descriptions of his alcoholic father, and his put-upon mother, catering, as wives of drunks often do, to the drunken husband in order to keep the peace.  The story pops back and forth between his nifty childhood and his current lovely life.

And to think electrons gave up their lives for this.

    Think I might skip this one – I don’t need sleeping aids.
