A Little Cloud

This is, so far, my favorite story in the book. He’s still young enough that he could possibly do something more exciting with his life, but he also has responsibilities and he’s too timid to really do anything adventurous – he can barely buy his wife a dress. But he’s jealous of his friend even if his friend might not be as successful as hr makes himself out to be. He’s at a sharp point in life.
