Quantity affects quality

She asked me about

my readership

and I replied,

“A good dozen in a good week.”

 

She looked a little taken aback

and I could see her

saying to herself,

“How we gonna sell that?”

 

The deal fell through

and I tucked my dream

of being an internet millionaire

under the pillow

in the spare bedroom

where I sleep when

I know I’ll wake up

with a really big hangover.

 

I’m not a numbers guy.
