He’d eaten a fish omelet, fish biscuits, fish pancakes, and strawberry shortcake. He burped again. He thought about brewing up a pot of fish soup for supper. Then he frowned: The people of Beaver Valley called him The Moacher of Mooch River and Mustard Breath.“Mustard Breath, my petunias!” he said, scowling until his jowls ached.Then his ears pricked up, like cat-ears, as he heard stifled giggles. He glanced beneath bushy eyebrows and spotted a boy and girl hiding amongst his strawberry plants.“Hey, Mustard Breath,” the boy said. “Bet you can’t catch us!”*The authorDan Lukiv is a poet, novelist, columnist, short story and article writer—and an independent education researcher (hermeneutic phenomenology).
