Be Careful What You Wish For by A.C. Hutchinson is a fantastic short story with dark humor. I thought it was funny...David had a gift, abused his gift and paid for it. Envisioning his table visitor as Samuel L. Jackson made it even better. The author did a fabulous job describing the characters. Hutchinson took a couple of common themes and twisted them together to form a modern fable.
This story is going to be added to my nominee list for Top 2018 Short Stories. We need more modern tales like this. While I love the classics, Aesop's Fables aren't as popular as they once were and sometimes adults need reminding of those valuable lessons.
