100 words; Harv, mid 80s

Harv was a large, gregarious man with thinning, frizzy gray hair, wild eyebrows, and craggy skin. He was a part time art director for the sleazy publishing company, getting some money in his retirement to fund his vacations. He was a sloppy dresser who smoked stogies, a holdover from the days when designers were just as likely to look like newspaper writers as look like dandies. Harv was a great storyteller, but my favorite was about the time he met Elvis in the bathroom in Vegas. Elvis did not wash his hands. To Harv, that made the handshake more special.
