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.

Wallace had been picked to go all-state on the mincing team. He was, far and away, the most talented mincer F Gary Powers High School had seen in years. His older brother, Prewallace, was an outstanding mincer, winning state twice in the 1990s; but Wallace’s mincing was natural and unstoppable.

Kids at rival schools used to examine F Gary Powers newly gotten mincing power like Talmudic Scholars studying a brand new issue of the Talmud. A respected journalist at The Froonfaroon Scimitar openly speculated that the mincing team’s rise to power was a direct result of Coach President Garfield-Shooter selling his soul to pro wrestling great The Magnificent Don Muraco, although he offered no evidence beyond a macabre dream he’d once had.

The mincing team’s success resulted from their unorthodox midnight-to-six practice schedule at Mince Hall and their dependence on bribery and amphetamines.

Still, no amount of skullduggery could take away from Wallace’s pure mincing ability.

  1. Having minced my meat for many years now, I have taken to sashaying; perhaps, F Gary Powers should hire a coach (moi) to develop a “back-up” squad to the mincers. Membership should probably be restricted to seniors.
