Syndic No.45 ~ J.R. Solanche


Written and Narrated by J.R. Solonche

New York


We were in the bar. College

basketball was on the big TV.

Alabama versus Kentucky.

“Kentucky will win,” said Jim.

“How do you know?” I said.

“Alabama’s wearing red.”

“And that’s why Kentucky

will win?”  “Yep, that’s why.

Alabama’s red uniforms will

make Kentucky see red. It’ll

pump up their testosterone,”

Jim said. “It’s the psychology

of color.” “Interesting. I guess

that explains why St. Valentine’s

Day’s color is always red.” “Yes,”

he said. “It’s always red lingerie.

Red roses. Also why a Ferrari

is sexiest in red.” “So why

didn’t you marry a redhead?”

I said. “I almost did,” Jim said.

“You never told me that. What

happened?” I said. “She wasn’t

natural. She dyed her hair red.

She had black roots,” Jim said.

“That’s tough,” I said. “Gee.”

“Yeah,” Jim said. “Hey, look,”

I said. “Alabama won. Sorry.”
