  1. Confirm or Ignore?

    Three o’clock on a Tuesday afternoon. I don’t have any more meetings today so the rest of the afternoon is dedicated to looking busy and staying awake. I have a small couch in my office but it’s not comfortable. Still haven’t decide...

  2. The Blanket Thief (Challenge Re-Post)

    As I sleep, a thief appears and robs me of blankets, leaving me cold and shivering. I have inquired of my partner who insists on denial, claiming that she sleeps perfectly still and has no need for my coverings as she has her own. Despite my regular mo...

  3. The Perspective Thief (re-posted)

    “I did not steal your blanket!” “Then why do I wake up cold every morning?” “What? That makes no sense. You’re cold therefore I stole the blankets? You are an idiot.” “Where are you going? This isn’...

  4. Carrot Face

    OK, I can do this. How hard can this be? . I took several deep breaths, trying to channel my inner Rachel Ray. Bill was supposed to come by around six, I glanced at the clock on the wall. Damn! It was almost two. I only had four hours to get dinner on ...

  5. Clash of the Tight Pants (Mature)

  6. Panic sets in

    It’s always the same dream. The setting never varies and she is never sure how she got there. She finds herself at the top of a flight of cement stairs. No handrails just smooth stone walls that seem to curve toward her. When she thinks of the dr...

  8. Famous Blue Raincoat

  9. Fading

    I tried to kick backward and get my feet back on the chair but only succeeded in knocking it over. I continued to kick ineffectually but it was getting harder to focus. The room seemed to swim and shift as my vision became cloudy. The scarf around my n...

  13. Little Pitchers, Big Ears

    Missy stood quietly behind an arm chair, invisible to the adults in the room. The grown-ups were having a heated conversation. Caught up in their debate, they forgot about the seven year old standing in the corner. Missy knew most of them; they worked ...

  14. Sansabelt Slacks

    “Who’s that guy?” My five year old son points at a photograph on the wall. It’s a photograph of my grandfather is in his army uniform, leaning against a tank and smoking a cigarette. I love the photo because it looks nothing like the man I ...

  15. Really?

    “Any chance that the stuff in the hall will be put away today?” I try to keep my voice calm as I gingerly step over the piles of books, assorted sports equipment and what appears to be a bag of shredded mail. A voice floats out of a nearby ...

  16. Eating Gefilte Fish Without Gagging for Dummies

    Gefilte Fish: fish balls made of deboned and ground fish. The first step in eating gefilte fish without gagging is to try not to eat it at all. Avoid eye contact with the server. Don’t let anyone clear your plate of egg shell, haroset, carpas etc. If...

  20. Sunrise Rollerland

    We don’t need no education For reasons unknown, those lyrics resonated deep within the hearts of Ms. Jan Wick’s fourth grade class. Why a song about alienated youths from post WW II Britain would appeal to her students, she would never understa...

  21. Rainy Day Recess

    She awoke slowly to the sound of rain pattering against the window. Before she was fully conscious, she felt him snuggle up against her, his chest hair gently tickling her back. She turned her head in greeting as his hand reached over to caress her hip...

  22. The Horror, The Horror

    His deafening screams covered the sound of his flesh hitting the ground as it was flayed from his bones.

  23. Hand Wash Only

    I take up my blade, so comfortable to me, a natural extension of my hand. It’s a weapon of utility, not flashy. No status symbol here. Made of a single solid piece of steel it always feels warm in my palm. Smooth contours and seamless constructio...

  24. Dog Poo and Roses

    He had me at “because you don’t like tomatoes.” It was the first time he cooked dinner for me. We had been dating for a few weeks and he had made a point of preparing a salad with no tomatoes just to please me. It was so sweet. He was...

  25. The Perspective Thief

    “I did not steal your blanket!” “Then why do I wake up cold every morning?” “What? That makes no sense. You’re cold therefore I stole the blankets? You are an idiot.” “Where are you going? This isn’...

  28. Ten Hours to Las Vegas

    “Blink 182 or Eminem?” “How about Pearl Jam?” Pearl Jam sucks, will you listen to Pink?” “Eminem it is.” I gripped the steering wheel hard. This conversation, or a variation of it, had been going on for several hou...

  29. Road Warrior

    Sitting in the last row of the first class seats I watch as the cattle heading back toward coach parade by. I keep waiting for the flight attendants to use cattle prods or perhaps dogs to keep the line moving but it never happens. Instead, I am forced ...
