Another classic short from the Sanitaria Springs universe. Well told and very engaging.

How can you go wrong with conversations like the following???

“But you're our son,” she said with a little smile. “We've known you were different since you were little, and we've loved you since we first set eyes on you.” She shifted her glance to me. “So you'd better be careful with my baby, Leo.”

I cleared my throat. “Yes, Mrs. Fitzroy.”

“Going into town and get some chicken feed. Probably stop and look at a mower,” his dad said, re-entering the room. He paused and placed a hand on each of our shoulders. “You know that feeling you get when you look at each other? Butterflies in your stomach, helium in your chest, heat in your face?”

I looked at Henry and he looked back at his father with interest – and a little blush, thankfully. I knew I must have been. Christ – hell with all this blushing shit.

“That feeling you get? What it is, is all your good sense leaving your body, boys,” he said, looking back and forth between us. “Alcohol doesn't make you wittier or better looking. Next time, grow a set and just talk to each other, eh?” He clapped Henry on the back. “You can have your things. Your mother will take the restriction off your phone.”

Really enjoyed both of these chapters; and how the interplay between the two.  I am not sure that I have read but one other story in the Sanitaria Springs universe.  I will have to go and explore it more; that said, these two chapters stood perfectly well on their own.

The writing was crisp and the flow was perfect.  The characters, even the secondary ones, were just so well developed.  Both chapters covered short time spans; but felt well done and complete when you finished reading them.

The humor was gentle and the barbs were well aimed.  Pull up a rocker on the porch and spend a little time getting to know these wonderful characters.

The Sanitary Springs universe is a unique and wonderful place filled with loving, compassionate people.  This story is one of many set in this universe.  The characters are funny and full of youthful hormones.  Drafted is a short story in this universe that introduces Leo, Micah's new friend, who introduces Micah into a new school.  Leo is a typical gay teen who has to deal with a broken heart.  Harry is the guy who broke it.  How things work out is a fun read that leaves you happy you read the story.
