Mornin'. I would like to know more about the breast augmentation surgery. Mine are too small and I want to surprise my husband. We don't operate, we are not doctors. The brand exists, but the announcement is made as a warning. Yes? Yes, we are extremist environmentalists. We are fighting for this flat earth. What? You should know that the death of people with implants causes an ecological disaster. Those who don't tell you about the impact of the surgery on the environment are impostors. Ma'am, stay biodegradable.

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 March 2021, the group has 4.300 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)
