How's it going in the ol' student contest? Just wondering if I would qualify to enter.
In any event, and in the absence of an invitation to partake in this contest for sprogs, I thought I'd give your story a little gander.
Loved it. Of course! As I love all your work. You have a cheekiness about your writing, which is always evident, even in a tough-guy gunslinger tale like this one.
I couldn't help envisioning this as an advert. You know those ones for bottle beer where it's all serious and then you realize they're taking the piss.
I've only recently found out there's a bottled beer called Corona. In my day Corona was pop (fizzy drink).
Damn! Now I've been rumbled. If I can remember that, they'll never let me enter.
Anyway I think you should pitch it to some big shot brewer. Who knows, maybe they're about to launch a product called OM. (notice I didn't spell that out..spoilers and all!!!)
Thumbs up from me. Good luck in the contest.
