Girl, for me it fits. Even with multiples. For example, I always get my period every 26 days. Precisely. You say this isn't bad luck? As if. In those days I miss the best dates. If I put in the broth, let's say, 637 beans, I get bloated for sure. What I pass the giant mansion on the 39th, I turn my head, so I don't see the number. And I cross the street, so I don't get hit by a pot. For a while, it started working with submultiples too. Tonight I'm meeting with a cool guy. He is surely 6.5. Ha, ha, ha. Inches, you say? Lord, please.

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 April 2021, the group has 5.600 members.) The authors write ultra-short stories, with the texts limited to 500 characters (in Romanian, so the length of the English translation might be a little different) - a flash-fiction exercise on a topic that changes almost daily. The group's coordinators are Florin Piersic Jr., Gabriel Molnar, Răzvan Penescu, and Luchian Abel. (Drawing by Adrian T. Roman)
