Tomorrow is a sale on coffins. Especially on those personalized. I have already called to reserve one with a hip overlook. After the car accident the doctor stitched me badly. I went into coma and didn't realise. It's ok. "War and silence" that works as well. I can choose between tinted or opaque if I use the rent money. Nevertheless, they don't have any with forehead overlook. At least not on sale. Better this way. From a wedding with Faust to one with Fanfare there is nothing more needed than a car, a pole and a malpractice.

Real Fiction is a collective project started in 2013 by Florin Piersic Jr. The concept of Real Fiction continued to exist as a Facebook group, after a volume of stories was published at Humanitas Publishing House. (In January 2021, the group has 3.000 members.) The authors write ultra-short stories, setting their texts within the limit of 500 symbols (in Romanian language, so in English the limit might be a little different) - a flash-fiction exercise with an almost daily changed topic. The group's coordinators are Florin Piersic Jr., Gabriel Molnar, and Luchian Abel. (Drawing by Adrian T. Roman)
