NANOFICTION

The mall opened early so senior citizens could walk for exercise in bad weather. Women walked -- men reverted to “standing on the corner watching all the girls go by.”

One woman sat down for a breather. A man sat next to her.

“Bother someone else!” she snapped. “I’m no pickup.”

He wept. “I’m so lonely.”
