Here’s a silly one from the Drabblecast for you Car Talk fans: “Squidges” by Thomas Canfield. The narrator brings his car to the three eccentric Maine brothers, who are sort of like the Tappet Brothers to the nth degree. The story itself is pretty non-consequential, but it’s well told. Even in something so short, it draws a great picture of the three brothers getting all excited over the squidges. Besides, who needs Deep Thoughts to put a smile on your face?
The introductory drabble is amusing, too.
