Pants

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.

“Are you going to the graphic design meeting?”

“Do I have to wear pants?”

“Yes, you do.”

“Well, I’m not wearing pants.”

“Well, then you can’t go to the meeting.”

“Fine.”

“Wait a minute, how come he gets to skip the meeting. He has to wear pants whenever he’s in the building. If he takes off his pants, that’s against policy. Now’s he getting rewarded for not wearing pants.”

“He’s not getting rewarded.”

“Well, he gets to skip the graphic design meeting.”

“Well, that’s hardly a reward.”

“If it were up to me, I’d fire all of you.”

“If it were up to me, I wouldn’t wear pants to work.”

“I am The Ghost Of Christmas Yet To Come! OOOooooooooooooooo!”

“Who said that?”
