Short short by Jim Foulds

Fast Hands

The coach called him off the ice.
"You can't skate worth shit can you, Johnston?"
"No, sir."
"They tell me you've got a fast mouth."
"Yes, sir."
"And fast hands"
"I think so, sir."
"You like this game?"
"Oh, yes, sir!"
"You want to try goal?'
"Okay, sir."
"Go strap on the pads."
"YES, SIR!"
"Oh don't be grateful, kid. Nobody else wants the job."

This delightful story of 66 words was first published in The Artery, Autumn 2008.
