Something Sexy

Every night after work I drive Sandy home. Her place is right on my route, so it’s no big deal. She’s happy for the help, and I don’t dislike having her company for those few minutes. Each night when I drop her off we go through our routine of goodnights. “Thanks for the ride,” she says. “I’ll see y...

Nair-Do-Wells - A Tale of Moustache Resistance

Ferocious follicles were everywhere, and humanity was on the ropes. For weeks now the moustaches continued to grow, en masse, and slowly seize control of the world’s powers. One night, the leaders of the G8 countries went to bed clean shaven, only to wake with full, beautiful, upper lip hair, the ro...

Re: Air Patrol

Thanks Varda. I always love your comments! They make me feel good. I have just reread Air Patrol with your take on it, and you're right, it really does speak to that. My original intent was just a wacky little sci-fi thing, but somehow I have infused social commentary. Wait...Isn't that a big part o...

Air Patrol

We keep our breathing shallow now, taking in just enough air to sustain our lives, keep our blood oxygenated. We need to be cautious not to take in too much; not to expel too much; not to exceed the public ration of daily air. The rich, living above us in their shiny condos with their filtration sys...

Points Card

“Hold on a minute!” I yelled at the others, my hand still resting on the gas pumps. “I need to find my Points Card.” “What the hell?” the woman next to me answered, her voice frantic. “It’s the end of the world and they’re getting closer. What could you possibly need points for?” “I don’t know,” I a...

Since Everyone Else Posted One...

The call goes out and the response is great. From all around the world comes support of the cause. Soon, it becomes a media event as the growing band of soldiers begin to converge on the chosen ground. “It is time,” speaks the one who has been chosen to lead. His is the most famous, the easiest reco...

Why Batman Wouldn't Work

Standing above the city, cape billowing in the wind, our hero looks out over the domain he has chosen to protect. It has been a long, hard journey for him to get where he is, but he has achieved his goals and is now the city’s sole protector. From a great distance he hears a scream, it inexplicably ...

I.R.DR.

I seat myself behind the broad expanse of desk; my leather chair creaks as I lower my body onto its cushion and I smile at the young girl across from me. She still looks nervous, though not as much as when she first came in. Behind me on the wall, among the shelves of medical books and action figure...

Morel Dilemma

People ask, “What would Jesus do?” and I question how it is relevant 2000 years after the fact. Well-dressed gentlemen in white shirts and black ties, their shoes shined to high gloss, come to my door and ask if I have found Jesus. I had no idea he was even missing, nor, for that matter, where one w...

Bungee Baby

The pregnant woman screamed. The man outside the car thrust the gun at her. A second man held a weapon on her husband, the driver. The woman screamed, pressure from her terror causing her to push on the baby. The child, wanting to protect his mother, burst forth from the birth canal and flew forward...

Deal

“Well,” the dapper man leaned back, his goatee pointed in my direction. “I hope that we can come to an agreement.” “Me too,” I answered. I’d never done anything like this before. “Tell me again. So we’re clear.” I gulped: “There was this girl, in high school, Jessyka Morrison. She entered my life at...

Re: Don't Look Back

Thank you, Flintknapper, once again, for your insightful commentary. It really makes me happy to see that my drabbles have an impact. You're absolutely right, of course. When I first started posting my tales, I was a real drabble-dabbler, and would try a bit of everything to see where I felt the mos...

Don't Look Back

Don’t turn around. Do not, under any circumstances, no matter what you hear, don’t turn around. If you don’t see it, it doesn’t see you. For the last couple of weeks I’d been making a concentrated effort not to look behind me, not to turn around. Everything has been forward; always forward. I haven’...

Rhetorical Question

“Look around,” the man at the podium paused, his arms open to indicate the surrounding area. “What do you see?” He held his silence as those amassed before him did as he asked, glancing nervously about. Everyone was expectant; that was clear in the expressions on their faces. After some time, and fu...

The Chamber

We were all loaded last night. This morning was a different story, standing in line as each of us in turn went into the chamber. These were the repercussions. As I, in around the middle of our group, moved closer and closer to my turn in the chamber, I wondered if the others were being fired. None h...

Re: Trailer Trash

There were a number of Anti-Nazi Warner Bros cartoons, though the ones I've seen have been Daffy Duck rather than Bugs Bunny, however that does not mean that there aren't Bugs Bunny toons that do the same. I have not, by any means, seen all of the original shorts, so I can't be sure.
