Experimental Fiction: Exhibit 32b – stack of postcards

Transcription of handwritten text from stack of postcards presented as exhibit 32b:


Joe-
Hello from sunny California. Things are great here, but no acting jobs yet. I overheard some guys talking about jobs at some warehouse. Don’t know why a warehouse needs actors, but it’s worth looking into, right?
-Craig


Joe-
The weather is great here. Still no work, but I got a dog to keep me company in the apartment. He looks just like the one on this card, except he’s not gray, and he still has his tail.
-Craig


Joe-
Found this card at the art museum and I thought of you. Remember how much Sandy used to hate that poster? Still no job. Arrol Flynn (that’s what I named the dog) took a bite of one of my cacti, and neither enjoyed it. See you at Xmas
-Craig


Joe-
Thanks for the clip-lamp, it’ll really help now that I have to share this room. Sorry I didn’t make it back to the OKC for Xmas : ( Oh! That ‘warehouse’ place called back, so I went to audition. It was in this old Victorian mansion, weird right?
-Craig


Joe-
I got the warehouse job. I still don’t really know what it’s about. Arrol fell out the window : ’( I’m getting a fish.
-Craig


Joe-
Sorry I didn’t make it back for Easter. I miss your mom’s Chex Mix. This warehouse place is so far paying me only for an exclusivity contract, but no actual work yet.
-Craig


Joe-
Happy Birthday! Expect a heavy package : ) The warehouse is now paying me not to have a girlfriends. Is that odd? Barrymore the fish and I are doing great in our new company apartment.
-Craig


Joe-
I thought you would like this card from SanFran. The Golden Gate Bridge is really impressive in person. I came down here to get a new plant for Barry’s tank. Only one store sells the good ones.
-Craig


Joe-
The warehouse finally took me to an acting job it’s up in Oregon. I saw this card, and knew you would like the scenery. I’m not quite sure what I’m going to be doing. I think we must me near a fireworks factory.
-Craig


Joe-
I’ve spent the last two days mostly just sitting in a cushy guard’s chair. We’ve been rehearsing a scene for this action movie. I’m playing the part of an assassin who is disguised as a security guard. It’s fun, but mostly, I spend all day sitting.
-Craig


Joe-
I’m sure you’ve seen the news. I don’t really know what’s going on, but I want everyone at home to know that I really did think it was a movie. I probably won’t make it home for awhile.
-Craig
