2. Pleasant Pieces
"If you cannot get rid of the family skeleton, you may as well make it dance."
— George Bernard Shaw (Immaturity)
In 1898, G B Shaw published his collection of "Plays: Pleasant and Unpleasant", thus introducing two new categories into literary criticism. I relate strongly to these categories. While I often don't know what to say about my flash fictions, I can always label them as "pleasant" or "unpleasant", which is why you find a chapter for each in this collection, capitalising on Shaw's original wit. We begin with the pleasant ones, in order to, well, be pleasant.
