I love Esquire. The actual magazine I have yet to read since it’s worth gazillions here in the Philippines, but the Net version is definitely fun and interesting.
Right now, I’m addicted to their Napkin Project, stories written on cocktail napkins sent to writers all over the US. About a hundred writers responded with stories written on the napkins. Ang galing!
This one’s Deb Olin Unferth’s “Joke.”
Meanwhile, Charles Blackstone’s “Before” is somewhat similar to something I wrote way back in 2003 or 2004, except mine’s too cheesy.
