Below you will find the results of my having challenged myself for a number of days to write a short story with a beginning and middle and an end inside of 30 minutes. Here is what I came up with. I hope you like it.
Mom had been thrown out of the Daughters Of The American Revolution, and Dad had been asked to leave The Secret Vomit Club. They were both pretty upset. Dad kept talking about how the whole thing was a misunderstanding. Mom kept quiet, but you could tell she was wondering just what the hell you had to do to get ousted from an after-hours regurgitation league.
Dad didn’t show a lot of interest in Mom’s departure. This pissed her off even more. Eventually, she quietly asked her brother, Arnie, to visit. Arnie ‘accidentally’ mutilated Dad’s hand with an electric boot pulverizer. Dad moved out. Pol Pot moved in a few weeks later. This was before he was famous.
