One of Those Days

By Scott L Vannatter – 150 Words (MS Word)

@SVBookman

“I’m thirsty!” yelled Thorman, looking at the “Caution and Out of Order” warnings on the drinking fountain.

“It doesn’t work, obviously,” said Milo,

“Water is water.  I don’t care if it’s cold or not.”

“You don’t know why the signs are on it.”

Thorman studied the inoperative device.  He looked long and hard at the contraption as you would at someone just daring you to try something.  He stepped forward and pressed on the “push” bar.  After several tries, the machine sputtered, then shot a warm stream of water two feet hard into his face.  He gagged a bit and stared angrily.

“I doubt that’s the reason it doesn’t work,” smiled Milo.

Angry now, Thorman smacked the uncooperative fountain, then grabbed the wire on the side.

“What’s…” he screamed and fell to the floor holding his smoking hand.

“That’s probably the reason.”  The statement came with a partially held-in snicker.
