100 Word Story. The assigned cue word is DRY

He was an expert at promotions and artistic events, 
and his next exercise would be at one of his favorite 
coffee houses. 

He asked the owner permission, and was 
given the go-ahead to throw a 
dry humor party.

The dry humor wit describes the act of 
displaying a lack of, or 
no emotion. Delivery is meant 
to be blunt and sarcastic.

The exercise would be by invitation only,
and those that wished to participate would
 join with the regular patrons, not indicating 
their participation. 

They would speak a little louder than usual 
so everyone attending would be able to hear.

We Real Cool BY GWENDOLYN BROOKS

        The Pool Players.
        Seven at the Golden Shovel.


            We real cool. We
   
            Left school. We



            Lurk late. We

            Strike straight. We

            Jazz June. We 
  
            Die soon.
