Bearing Gifts (Good Samaritan Theme)

When Martin stopped to help a stranded stranger, he expected nothing in return. The stranger, a Hopi musician, had blown a tire en route to a wedding at the local reservation.

“Look, I don’t normally do this,” said the musician, “but please accept this wedding gift as a thank-you. I can get the happy couple another one later.” The stranger’s eyes glittered as he passed Martin a little gift box.

At home, Martin unwrapped the gift: a positive pregnancy test. An attached note read, “From Kokopelli, Trickster, God of Childbirth.”

Real funny, thought Martin. But then the morning sickness started.

No good deed goes unpunished.

See...that's the kind of thank you I've been waiting for.

Perhaps it's a matter of perspective. In the long run, people always say children are one of the great gifts in life.

In the short run, the lack of a uterus is going to be a real problem. I like to think that Martin has found a new use for his appendix. :mrgreen:

Good story.

Of course, that's what you expect from some guy hitting himself with a rake!

Really liked this one. Although I'm not sure if it's humourous or horror...Kokopelli is like a xenomorph with a repertoire of fart jokes.

Holy crap! :shock: I never noticed that before! I have a feeling I'll never be able to un-see this, whenever I run into Kokopelli artwork...

I loved this one. Of course I am obviously fond of the southwest theme. As for the guy hitting himself with a rake, that made me spit up some water. I am actually going to tell that one to pueblo workers outside.... they are probably not going to want to talk with me again.

Thanks, Flintknapper! Actually, I was inspired by your drabble about the Koshare. Ended up on an epic Wikipedia trip that led me to ol' Rake Face. Many thanks to you! :)
