Tonight, There’s Gonna Be A Jailbreak.

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.

“You know what I’d do if I went to prison?”

“Die?”

“No. Seriously, you know what I’d do if I went to prison?”

“What?”

“I’d pretend to be crazy.”

“Yeah?”

“Yeah. They don’t fuck with you if you’re crazy. I’d just go in there and righty off the bat do some weird shit, and people would leave me alone.”

“Yeah?”

“Yeah. They don’t fuck with you if you’re crazy.”

“My cousin went to jail.”

“Really?”

“Yeah.”

“What did he do?”

“He kicked a woman in the stomach, and then he tried to remove her eye with his fingers.”

“Shit. Why would he do that?”

“He wasn’t pretending to be crazy.”
