100 Word Story: Pump Chat

“How often do you come here?”

“Here where? To this city? Or this gas pump?”

“Gas pump. Do you know the guy who owns the place?”

“No. Should I?”

“He’s famous. He swam the English Channel.”

“And now he owns a gas station? How does that work?”

“People can do amazing things and go on to do ordinary things. It happens all the time.  Look at Amelia Earhart.”

“She crashed into the Pacific. She didn’t have a chance to do an ordinary thing.”


“I’m gonna go pay now. Maybe get a car wash. You have a great day, okay?”
