Crouton: A Love Story, by T. Alex Miller
I love surprises.
I love finding stories or books that come from somewhere way out in left field; stories I haven't read before.
Crouton: A Love Story, by T. Alex Miller, is one of these wonderful surprises. It's about Ted, a rather obsessive clean freak, and what happens when a crouton mysteriously appears on the ottoman of his spotless apartment.
Miller is hysterical. I hardly ever laugh out loud, but he got me a couple of times; probably because I've known a few people like his protagonist.
Check it out here. It's short. It's free. At the very least, you won't find yourself saying, "Oh, I've read this before."
