Been There, Done That


“We could break into somebody’s house.”

“Broke into my first house when I was fifteen.”

“A liquor store?” 

“Hit Jacks when I was twenty. Only had $450.00 in the register.”

“Rob a bank?”

“Worked a job with the Jenkins gang back in ’07. Held up the Palmira National Bank and Trust over in Nobstown.”

When Marcus said he wanted to do something different, that he was tired of the same ole thing, Gary thought it would be easy to come up with a new heist. He wasn’t so sure now. Seems Marcus had a more interesting past that Gary was aware of. 

Gary thought for a few minutes, smiled, and just for shits and giggles, threw out, “We could kill somebody.”

“Been there, done that.”

My mom says "Been there, done that" all the time & it drives me nuts. This is the first time I've come across the phrase & it actually felt perfectly placed. Thank you for that! Also, loving your flash fiction pieces! Will be back for more :)
