100 Below: Volume 2

"You fucked a goat?" Brian asked, recoiling.

"But it was a magic goat," Sally said lamely. "I thought it would make you happy."

"How would your fucking a goat make me happy, Sal? Jesus!"

"Because," she said, "now I can do this--" and she vomited onto the bed.

Brian yelped. A bright, glistening pool lay between them. It was composed of seven distinct colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet. The colors swirled but never mixed, like living paint. Brian looked at Sally.

"You can vomit rainbows," he said in awe.

Sally wept. Because he understood.
