Today’s flash fiction

 Secure Life in the Country

“I tell you Bill, you ought to consider moving out here.”

“It looks like the rural life is agreeing with you and Barb.”

“It’s idyllic. We raise our own vegetables, know our neighbors. It’s peaceful and quiet.”

“Sounds pleasant.”

“You should escape the city with its congestion and crime. Out here we have no worries.”

“You mean there’s no crime in Fairview?”

“You kidding? We never lock our doors.”


“And we sleep with the windows open.”

“Must be nice.”

“Of course with our concealed carry permits, Barb and I have our Glock 9 millimeters with us at all times.”
