Three women work in an office building downtown. An hour into the work day, the first woman receives a text from her husband asking if she would like to meet for lunch. The second woman receives a bouquet of flowers (the sixth time this year) and a necklace from her husband, while the third woman stumbles in late wearing last night’s clothes and hung over from her weekend one night stand. Whether it’s a husband who’s willing to offer his time, one who never has the time but the finances to make up for it, or the freedom to spend each weekend with someone new, each woman wants what the other has, looking over the hedge to the greener grass and the other life that appears flawless from so far away.
Michael Wojciechowski is the author of the novels Utah Expectations and Cameron's Road and the short story, Redemption in a Cheap Motel Room.
