This weeks phrase: “Elmer Gantry was drunk.” SINCLAIR LEWIS, ELMER GANTRY (1927).

Today sucked. Some idiot hit my car. I was late for work. My boss called me in for a “chat”. He freed up my future due to cutbacks. Went home and my place had been vandalized. Grabbed my favorite bottle. My wife found me slumped over. Honestly, I was drunk.

This story was written for the 50 word Thursday challenge, this week hosted by Teresa , The Haunted Wordsmith.
