Short Story Month - All My Sad Captains by Joseph Mills
Literary stories are a strange thing. They try too hard most times to show you how miserable life is. Now, this story shows us the break down of a marriage but you never meet the wife and hear the usual yelling and screaming that accompanies a breakup. This story is told from the husband's point of view as he's spending "quality" time with his friends. The ending left me giggling because it was such a male thing and I could actually see it happening. You can read "All My Sad Captains" by Joseph Mills over at Whiskeypaper.
