A recent short fiction from the New Yorker, Aug 11…….

THE DINNER PARTY
by joshua ferris

A selection….

““They come in,” he said, “we take their coats. Everyone talks in a big hurry as if we didn’t have four long hours ahead of us. We self-medicate with alcohol. A lot of things are discussed, different issues. Everyone laughs a lot, but later no one can say what exactly was so witty. Compliments on the food. A couple of monologues. Then they start to yawn, we start to yawn. They say, ‘We should think about leaving, huh?,’ and we politely look away, like they’ve just decided to take a crap on the dinner table. Everyone stands, one of us gets their coats, peppy goodbyes. We all say what a lovely evening, do it again soon, blah-blah-blah. And then they leave and we talk about them and they hit the streets and talk about us.”

“What would make you happy?” she asked.

“A blow job.”

“Let’s wait until they get here for that,” she said.”

    “I don’t think she’s going to be willing to do a shot,” she said.

    “We trick her somehow. Tell her it’s full of prenatal vitamins, and she shoots it down.”

    “Because she just graduated from the third grade,” she said, “and she’s blind and retarded.”

    ah.
    ha.
