Got to go further

I have a former friend (you do too) and I still look at her blog (as do you). Today she posted a short story about a one-night stand. Since she has much material from which to pull, I expected it to be pretty good.

The writing was impressive, the story itself was not. It never transcended the point that many of these make, which is that one-night stands often bring together two disparate people with their own needs and their own pains and that neither is fulfilled or assuaged by the brief union.

I'm not exactly a one-night stand veteran and so I suppose that may be all there is to say. However, I doubt it.
