The rain comes

3/2/2021
After a few weeks of mild sunny weather and then a few days of hotter weather, it’ll be raining for a few days. It’s a relaxing sound. The thunder. Lighting. The rain. I didn’t slide the patio chairs under the umbrella in time to keep them dry, or I’d be reading under the big umbrella. … Continue reading "The rain comes"

The telephones

3/1/2021
I hate the telephones. Every one of them. They’re always ringing. Angry customers calling us. Angry at us. When they should be angry at themselves. For not reading the manual. For not following the instructions. For using our product wrong. For being so stupid. And cheap, too. Because we’re cheap. We buy cheap servers. We … Continue reading "The telephones"

Weekly Challenge #775 – WINE

2/28/2021
Lizzie Richard Serendipidy Tom Norval Joe Jared Tura Planet Z RICHARD Miracle? Yeah, turning water into wine, just a cheap parlour trick really.

Of course not, because it … Continue reading "Weekly Challenge #775 – WINE"

Young elephants

Run away and join

2/26/2021
When the circus comes to town, kids dream of running away from their boring, ordinary lives. The clowns, the animals, the acrobats, the sights and smells… Billy was sick of them all, the train coming to a stop, rolling off the equipment and carts, setting up the tents. Then running the same show, over and … Continue reading "Run away and join"

When Spring comes to Texas

2/25/2021
Winter doesn’t last long in Texas. Neither does Spring. Summer comes, and then, a blazing hell that drives us all indoors for months and months. The flowers that bloomed so beautifully will dry, wither, rot, and fall. Go ahead. Water them. Maybe they’ll last another day or two. Or maybe they’ll rot faster. What the … Continue reading "When Spring comes to Texas"

Buzz punch

2/24/2021
A while back, some nutcase got in astronaut Buzz Aldrin’s face and yelled that the moon landing had been faked. Buzz punched the guy in the face. Maybe you’ve seen it? Man, to be punched in the face by Buzz Aldrin. THE Buzz Aldrin. I’d pay good money to get punched in the face by … Continue reading "Buzz punch"

The deli

2/23/2021
The war was over. Germany had lost. And a lot of Berlin delicatessens who had named sandwiches after Hitler had to make some drastic menu changes in 1945. “Hi, Franz.” “Hi, Rolf. What’ll you have?” “Oh, my usual. The Hitler.” “Sorry, we call it the Hoagie now.” “Is it still seven wheelbarrows of Reichmarks?” “Yes, … Continue reading "The deli"

HR

2/22/2021
So, if you like asking your HR staff insane questions, try this one: “If I built a robot that beats the Turing test, can I declare it as a dependent?” If they say that you cannot declare robots as dependents, reply with “How do you KNOW that it’s a robot I keep in this cardboard … Continue reading "HR"

The minotaur killing machine

2/20/2021
If Daedalus could build functional wings out of the debris strewn about in the Labyrinth, why couldn’t he just build a goddamned minotaur-killing machine? Well, the truth is, that was his first project. He gathered up the bones of the minotaur’s victims, wood, wax, feathers, and twine. From these, he fashioned an elaborate minotaur-killing war … Continue reading "The minotaur killing machine"

Window office

2/19/2021
For years, I worked in an office without a window. I liked the dark and the quiet. And I thought I’d be scared of heights. Every time I went into another office with a window, I’d look out the window and get vertigo. So, I didn’t want an office with a window. Then, when one … Continue reading "Window office"

Weekly Challenge #773 – Smalltalk

2/14/2021
Lizzie Richard Serendipidy Tom Norval Joe Jared Planet Z RICHARD The Date Don’t you just hate this bit? The whole ‘getting to know you’ nonsense?
