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.
“How’d the date with the surgeon go?”
“Ugh. Cute, but he might vote for Bernie Sanders.”
“Did he go off on how his shit doesn’t stink?”
“No. I told him at the beginning of the date – right off the bat – that I’m a member of MENSA.”
“Some guys are intimidated by strong women.”
“That’s me. Xena Warrior Princess. You’re like Gabrielle.”
“Hey, tomorrow, when you get to the shop, can you put aside 3 issues of Uncanny Avengers for me?”
