  • Morning Bells
    Richard Boggs Strange – 13 Pages Some days, especially Sunday, no one comes in. If I didn’t work here, neither would I. I find Sundays especially gloomy – but I don’t know why. The sun could be shining, and the world would open wide with a smile, and I would say, “Dude, tomorrow’s Monday. Since I work Sundays, my week…
  • Surprise Package
    Brian Sellnow– Sci-Fi – 1 Page – The crying was to be expected. The girls, after all, were only six years old and, despite their enhanced intelligence and intensive training, were still emotionally immature.

  • Eat Pete
    -Humor – 5 Pages – Mary Beth awoke with a start. “What the fu…,” she said, groggily. She looked around and realized immediately that it had been a dream. But what a strange dream it was.

  • An Amendunum (Made Up Word!)
    Wow. Some online help ya sites are just mean. Guess I didn’t follow their strict rules last week so we didn’t get paid. This reminds me when “Crocodile Dundee” came out and it was such a big hit. So big of a hit that I decided to get a film crew and actors together and make a good ole USA…
  • Go On Now…GIT!
    An email from Tony: Ldkfjg\#%$9473&rmsrijgdkg525455f;fuslvpesa,cvoes,d* Well Tony, if that is your real name, I take issue with “esa”. I just don’t think that kind of language is necessary…but, ok. Nice to know that has spanded the globe and now has expanded to the outer reaches of the galaxy. Obviously, this is an alien language and I’ll interpret it the…
  • The Present
    Stephen JonhnsonGuess I’ll just talk about the present this week. I did remember something from our glorious past earlier this week, but forgot what it was.
