Speaking of writing, here's an Onion-style brief Rachel and I came up with today.
Local restaurant closes doors
COPPELL, TX. After sixteen years serving legions of loyal customers,
Perky Pete's Diner closed its doors for the last time today. "Well, it was
getting to be about 10:45, and we just figured we'd better lock up since the
last guest left." The long-time host of Perky Pete's, two servers,
and three cooks were told to "go on home," losing their jobs until the restauraunt
opens again for breakfast service at 7:00 tomorrow.
Writing this satire stuff isn't as easy as I thought.
