Letter in a Bottle

Posted: January 29, 2010 in Steve's posts

I have asked a few friends to be a part of my blog, and Steve is the first one to respond with something to post on my blog.  Steve and I have known each other since elementary school and NOBODY calls him Steve.  I am calling him Steve, instead of his common name only because I call myself Andrew Michaels on this blog, but NOBODY calls me by that name in real life.  Also, he is not to be confused with my friend Andrew, whose first name is actually Steve, even though I have only ever called him by his last name.  Steve lives in California and has been working in writing in one way or another for a long time now.  He has a short film that I recently watched and really enjoyed.  I plan on posting the short film some time next week on the blog.   I hope that this  becomes a regular weekly random posting from Steve.  Only time will tell. I hope that you enjoy this short story!

This short story is entitled……..

LETTER IN A BOTTLE

I saw a woman at the roller rink that looked exactly like a porn actress in a porno I own. And even though I knew she could not have been the porn actress, based on the fact that the porno was made in 1987 and the actual actress would have aged 20 some years, I was still compelled to make her aware of the uncanny resemblance.

I told her, and to my surprise she replied with, “But this is 1987”. And as I looked around in slow motion, a wave of embarrassment washed over my spiky mullet. She was right.

I couldn’t help but be reminded of the time that I bought a DeLorean and purposely got a ticket for going 88mph, just to tell the judge that if I was truly going 88 mph that I would be in 1955. His reply, “But you are in 1955”.
I can’t explain time travel to you because I don’t know when you are reading this or when I am writing this but just know that I love you and in time we will be together.
