This week on The Easy Chair: The Go-Between, an original short fiction I am really, really proud of. Really! For the past 30 years Melissa has been reasonably happy in her reasonably good marriage. Her husband Dean is supportive and successful and when she needs to vent, her best friend Janet is not only there to listen but empathize. Over the years, confidences are shared, wife to husband, best friend to best friend. Still, as Melissa sits nursing a Scotch at the neighborhood bar, waiting for Dean and Janet to join her, she can’t shake the feeling that the shit’s about to hit the fan. Is she delusional, menopausal, or onto something? Tune in and find out!
