Flash Fiction (a Hundred Words or Fewer) #23: Maggie and Hopey

During my exotic phase my sophomore year of college, I dated Isabel, this Latina classmate who resembled Maggie, a Latina character in a comic I read called Love and Rockets.  (Two brothers named Hernandez wrote and drew it.)  Four months into the relationship, I boinked June—Isabel’s Latina roommate—several times.  June didn’t even remotely resemble Hopey, Maggie’s occasional girlfriend, which disappointed me a little.  Anyway, Isabel somehow found out what I’d done, and—game over, man.  Three decades later, I voted for Trump, despite his views on brown people; he could understand the cheatin’ man, unlike Hillary, ha ha.
