Excerpt:

“Isn’t she pretty”

He was introducing his new girl friend to his group of friends and without meaning to he made the situation immediately un-comfortable.  He said; “Isn’t she pretty”.  His face flushed red and she excused herself to the bath room while the rest of the party dug into bowls of potato crisps.  In the bath room he said to a man washing his hands – “I always do that, I’m Sorry, i make things awkward all the time. I wish I had a..a ..a” trying to find the words he swung two fingers around in small swirling circles beside each other. The man, not knowing what to say asked if the word he was looking for was “time machine?”

Adjusting his belt, a leather belt with dice on the buckle, he said “No, I mean to say a double barrel shot gun”

Someone eating a curry on a bench in Jacana that night thought the dull boom was a single fire work, and he smiled to himself.  She was the prettiest woman he had ever seen.
