Stories you can listen to, #8: Jimmy Boy

January 19, 2015 5:20 pm Published by 1 Comment


In my continuing series of short stories, “Jimmy Boy” is told from the point of view of Delores Weaver, an elderly woman riding out Hurricane Iniki in Kauai, Hawaii, in September of 1992. It isn’t long before Delores and her husband, who has Alzheimer’s, have to move from their apartment to a storm shelter. It’s obvious to Delores that the storm has upset her husband. To comfort him, she retells a story that never fails to bring a smile to his face.
