Well, girl, I'm into transcendental meditation and tantra now. Actually, just the other night I showed an IT guy his way to nirvana. He was almost there but then his wife called and I could hear her yelling damn slut, you lecherous good-for-nothing, you said you were away for a teambuilding activity. She's ruined it and now I'm taking everything easier. I see myself as a rising star, you see. Newcomers too can get some credit from me. They've almost blown up my IG today. I feel I'm getting there. I feel I'm ready to switch to crypto. They're said to be really cheap since

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 2022, the group has 8,050 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)
