All of the names

1/16/2019
More
Back in Fifth Grade, the Math teacher taught us basic geometry. She handed out a test with shapes on it. “Name each shape,” she said. When I saw a square, I called it a square. When I saw a hexagon, I called it a hexagon. And so on. When I got my test back, I … Continue reading "All of the names"

Sniper

1/15/2019
More
Today’s lesson from Master Gallagher is how to shoot your target while facing a headwind. One must ensure that the bullet is smooth and the balance is perfect. Otherwise, it will corkscrew in the air and go wild. To reduce this effect, you must fire from an absolute minimum safe distance. Unlike calm days, when … Continue reading "Sniper"

Clothing Drive

1/12/2019
More
I’d like to think that if Mickey Mouse ever wrote up a will, he’d leave his pants to Donald Duck. Because it’s really rude, walking around without pants. Especially at a funeral. There’s not much point in leaving his shoes to the duck. They probably won’t fit those big webbed feet. And if Donald ever … Continue reading "Clothing Drive"

The Holy Lie

1/11/2019
More
If Noah only brought two of every animal on the ark, the inbreeding would result in genetic diversity catastrophe and mass extinction. DNA didn’t just magically appear when Watson, Crick, and their lab technicians saw its shadow and declared 6 more weeks of scientific discovery. If God doesn’t miracle up solutions for zoos searching for … Continue reading "The Holy Lie"

We started with a simple black and white tube television, maybe a foot across. Then, we got a color television. After that, a bigger one. With stereo. The first television I had on my own was really a VCR with a computer color monitor. But after that, I got a nice one with a big … Continue reading "Life is a series of televisions"

Beethoven the Monster

1/8/2019
More
Beethoven was a brilliant composer. He was also an master on the piano. Other composers tried to steal his work and pass it off as their own. But Beethoven’s works were so hard to play, they couldn’t manage to play them. Composers would break their fingers and fracture their wrists in the attempt. One had … Continue reading "Beethoven the Monster"

Turkey bacon

1/7/2019
More
Writers write with pen, paper, typewriters, and computers. Some use text to speech, where they talk, and they get text. Voice recognition is much better these days. Forget speech to text. I want speech to bacon. I want to be able to say “Bacon” to a machine, and have the machine print bacon. Fully-cooked, crispy … Continue reading "Turkey bacon"

Thinking

He thinks too much. Thoughts roll around in his head. Over and over. Always thinking, never doing. Trapped in thought, frozen. He calls them the echoes. Thoughts echoing in his head. Things that have happened. Things that might happen. Things that never happened. But should have. He’s just sitting there, thinking. What are you thinking … Continue reading "Thinking"

Cool to the touch

It’s three in the morning, and the baby won’t stop crying. I put on my gloves, reach into the immersion tank, and pull the baby out of its liquid Nitrogen bath. An odd fog follows the baby and rolls off of its skin. I lay the baby on the insulated blanket on my shoulder and … Continue reading "Cool to the touch"

The cabinet

In my room, there’s a cabinet. The cabinet was my grandmother’s. Or maybe my great-grandmother’s. I can’t remember. The cabinet has glass doors and lights in the shelves. I keep keepsakes and memories of friends long gone in there. I keep the doors closed, but dust always seems to get in somehow. So, I open … Continue reading "The cabinet"

My iPhone wouldn’t wake up. I pressed the home key, but it didn’t respond. It didn’t respond when I pressed the lock key, either. When I plugged the phone in, it didn’t respond. I panicked. Is the Apple Store open? Is it still under warranty? How much will this cost? So, I Googled “iphone doesn’t … Continue reading "Sleepy phone"

What if that spot on your arm isn’t just a spot? A patch of rough skin or a simple blemish? It doesn’t hurt. It’s not growing… much. It cleared up a little with the cream, right? It’s nothing to worry about, really. Maybe if you stopped scratching it. Or picking at it. It’ll clear up … Continue reading "What’s the harm?"
