I was in the Newsagent getting my morning paper. All of a sudden the headlines hit me!
‘”EBOOK “WEB OF GUILT, A CHICAGO STORY” SELLS A MILLION!”
The story was in every paper. I bought them all.
The newsagent smiled and said, “I downloaded your book and I will start reading it tonight.”
“Thank you very much. I hope you enjoy it.”
I walked out into the sunshine in a daze. It seemed everyone I passed was smiling at me.
The next thing I knew, I was on a huge stage with the TV cameras trained on me!
A beautiful lady in a long red evening dress was handing me a gold statue. Etched on the base was, “Popular Book Of The Year Award”.
A microphone was put before me and I started talking:
“Thank you very much for this award. I want to thank everyone who supported my writing. I want to thank my mother and father, my wife, and my Long Lost Cousin, who is my muse.
The auditorium exploded with thunderous applause!
THUD! I opened my eyes and I was lying on the floor by my bed. I must have rolled off in the excitement of my dream!
That pastrami sandwich I had last night must have had a funny effect on me!
