Have you ever had one of your Facebook friends ask you to repost one of their weepy, guilt inducing ready made poster posts about the joys of having a sister, owning a dog that wants nothing in return from us but a hug and an occasional loaf of bread when your back is turned or an ode to how dismal the world would be without mail carriers who deliver on Saturdays?
You have? Good!
Because I have one for you right here and it will be so much easier if you know the drill. I’m trying to sell a Kindle version of my book, “The Barber’s Conundrum and Other Stories” for a measly $1.99 and I need all the help I can get. Also, and this may be an old wives tale, but one person who didn’t repost one of those holier than thou scribes suffered a great misfortune. Apparently, he left his jacket at the movies and when he went back no more than ten minutes later to retrieve it, it was still there on the floor but there was mustard on the sleeve and the collar was really sticky. Plus, the ending of the movie was completely predictable.
The cosmos is a tricky thing. I believe Carl Sagan said that. Or maybe one of those women from “Sex in the City”.
Here’s the thing that I demand you post as your Facebook status:
Today only! Pick up a Kindle version of The Barber’s Conundrum and Other Stories for only $1.99!
Great gift! Cheaper than a birthday card or a cup of coffee you can get at one of those new fancy places but not an old school deli.

Hurry, there’s only as many as you need left!
