Reader's Diary #1161- Jaynel Attolini: Bologna


The wisdom shared in Jaynel Attolini's "Bologna" seems to be yes, sometimes life is crappy, so make the most of it for the time being and just wait it out. That's fine. And though I'm not surprised to see bologna take on the unglamorous symbolic role, I like bologna. Grew up on bologna. Oh well.

Still, a fine story. Flash, but still room for a lot of evocative imagery. The reference to the musty smelling upholstery of crappy campers took me back instantly.

It's funny how sometimes you think you've progressed, moved up in the world, but maybe there's something to be said for having the ability to appreciate cheap luncheon meat and poor quality camping gear.
