Little Things

Read this story.  It should only take you two minutes.

          Little Things by Raymond Carver

This is one of those amazing short pieces of fiction I love.  Carver shows his mastery of storytelling here.  The description is spot on, especially when he foreshadows with this line:

"The baby was red-faced and screaming. In the scuffle they knocked down a flowerpot that hung behind the stove."
And the way the end comes up short nearly takes your breath away. Have a read and tell me what you think.
