I couldn’t park in the garage, Jimmy said. I was annoyed. I worry about people breaking my mirrors or peeing in my wheel wells or something.

What gives, man? I asked.

No room, he told me. Moon’s in there.

I peeked in the garage, and there it was: the moon, spinning quietly.

It’s wobbling, I said.

Yeah, Jimmy nodded. That’s why I pulled it in. Gonna fix the alignment, maybe some new shocks.

Easy fix, I said. You don’t need a garage for that.

Yeah, said Jimmy, grinning. But this weekend I’m going to soup it up. Baby’s gonna cook.

Begs for genuine audio production, if Norm can find a straight voice with a heavy Brooklyn accent.

Surreally fun.

On a style note, is there a reason you didn't use quotation marks?

I was feeling lit-ficcy the day I wrote it. :-)

Read this on your blog. I really like these sorts of drabbles you do, they're full of so much imagery you can't properly imagine. I like that.
