My Father Yelled At God

Below you will find the results of my having challenged myself for a number of days to write a short story with a beginning and middle and an end inside of 30 minutes. Here is what I came up with. I hope you like it.

My dad yelled at God. He yelled at the piano. He yelled at my mother. He yelled at the piano. He yelled at the television. He yelled at God. He yelled at the piano. He yelled at my mother. She left. He yelled at the empty house. He yelled at the piano. He yelled at God. He yelled at the piano. He yelled at the piano. He yelled at his girlfriend. He yelled at Vladimir Horowitz. He yelled at Satie. He yelled at Bill Evans. He yelled at the piano. He yelled at God and he yelled at the piano.

He never yelled at me, though.

After he died, The University of Southern California did a retrospective of his work. Yo Yo Ma showed up.
