Wholly Holy Holey

4 Jan

Denim HoleThis story was born because I woke up thinking about the words wholly, holy, and holey (hole-y), which got me thinking about how holiness is generally considered a plus but holeyness (hole-i-ness) not so much (although for some things, like Swiss cheese and colanders, a good thing). As for the shorty, still dark stuff but at least there’s a little word play in this one and I think this shorty might turn out to be a keeper.


Working Title: Your Holiness
1st Sentence: We thought we were being clever, calling him “Your Holiness”—Your Hole-i-ness, har har—because of the splits and tears in his clothes.
Favorite Sentence: And then His Holiness finally gets righteous.
Word Length: 274
