The cheapskate in me is horrified by what I paid for a 21 page story, so I'm glad that I at least enjoyed it a lot. Despite its short length, it has everything it needs. As always, Merrow provides an interesting, vivid narrator -- this time an ex-soldier with ex-legs. Chris is trying to get back to normal life, but he doesn't expect that life to include the pretty guy he hooked up with before going to Afghanistan -- after all, as a 10 to Chris' 5, Josh must have been drunk to have been interested in him in the first place. And nowadays, Chris thinks of himself as more like two and three-quarters.Merrow does a nice job of bringing these two back together, and showing the complicated emotions they both face. It was a touching and satisfying read.
