Recently I stumbled across the Twitter page of Arjun Basu, a writer who posts poignant stories that run to their conclusion in 140 characters.  I find these expresso-like shots of prose, combined with the constantly updated content, are perfect for today’s fast paced and busy days.  See for yourself on Arjun’s twitter page here.  Here are some samples for your delight:

“He fell off a cliff in his dream and woke up on the floor. There was a golf club next to him. But he didn’t play. And the club smelled rank.”

“The insurance agent surveys the ruins. The homeowner follows her. He says, What do you think? The agent shrugs. I wish I had money, she says”

“Dan believed in love like lions believe in sauteed mushrooms. This didn’t stop him from dressing well. Or decorating his house with flowers.”

“He always expects the elevator to break down. That’s why he checks the ladies out every time. To see who he could make babies with. In case.”
