Probably No Cake

Post by loyaleagle » Fri Mar 16, 2012 5:01 am

As it turned out, everybody was wrong. The bloody Mayans were wrong. Those Christian folks, too, no matter how many times they conveniently refiggered the date. Even the scientists who kept track of the space rocks were wrong. At least they were gettin’ paid.

Thinkin’ back, if you considered all the possible days for Armageddon and how only a handful were set down in predictions, the odds of guessin’ right were pretty damn low. So you can see how I got mad when the world decided to end on my birthday – but I’m tryin’ not to take it too personal.

Nice one, keep it up.


Also...graduating?? For me, twabbles are twice as tough as drabbles.

Yes, for some reason I've always found brevity to be easier than length :P

Thanks!
