Gonna try one more time. A different short story altogether.

[Addendum – July 16, 2010: I realized after writing this that I had inadvertently used the working title of one of my short stories, “A Question for the Lake,” rather than its final title, “Round & Round It Goes.” You can find that story under the Writing tab at the top of the blog.]
