“A-Maze-Ing”

By Scott L Vannatter – 100 Words

 

The whole thing is: it’s not very funny.

Oh, you might think so, what with everyone laughing so hard.

Everyone, that is, but Tommy.

He can’t help having gotten lost in the simple hedge maze for over 4 hours.

I mean it does look quite easy and the average solve time is stated at 7 minutes.

Still, it all comes down to a matter of science, well anatomy, at least.

See Tommy has a problem. He came to the maze to prove it was not a problem, but …

Ahem, Tommy, you must understand, is only three foot ten inches…

“The Third Switch”

By Scott L Vannatter – 100 Words

Three little switches were on the contraption. Keith looked at the first one and flipped it.

All of the lights went out in the house. He flipped it back – nothing.

When he flipped the second switch, the lights came back on.

Smiling, he flipped the third switch and waited; nothing happened.

Scratching his head, he walked back upstairs to his wife staring out the window.

“What’s the matter, Sweetheart?”

She simply stared and began to shiver. Keith followed her finger pointing toward the large window.

New York City was dark.

Keith began to worry, perhaps, it was not just NYC.

Row, Row, Row!

By Scott L Vannatter – 100 Words

Derik looked out over the vastness of the ocean. Their dilemma made him more than a little nervous.

He looked at Cecil.

“What? You are still blaming me for the yacht going down, aren’t you?”

Derik answered with silence.

“I knew it! Well, it was an accident. The flare gun went off and the container of fuel…”

He began to lay down.

“Don’t!” Derik hollered, scaring him.

“What’s the matter?”

Don’t use the sleeping bag. It’s been two weeks and you look like a damn sandwich in it.”

“So? What are you….OWW!”

“Sorry, I tried to tell you.”

“Taste good!?”

“Get Your Kicks…”

By Scott L Vannatter – 100 Words

Herbert was losing hope. He knew he had never had any “kicks,” so someone had taken them.

Now he had found where to look. Problem was he had been driving on this highway for several weeks without finding anything. The police were even beginning to know his car. Two had stopped him and when he had told them what he was looking for, they had said if he found them in their jurisdiction, they would put him away.

Now, he was suspicious that the police were involved in the theft of his “kicks.”

He was running out of gas money.

One Toke Over the Line

By Scott L Vannatter – 100 words

Galen watched as Henrietta moved the insect in circles as she spun her threads of death. He was amazed at how fast she worked and the pitch she was putting into her efforts.

“Getting done?” He called to the Widow in Black.

“Yes, Galen. I should have it all wrapped up in a minute.”

Ignoring the horrible pun, Galen continued. “That’s a bit different than usual.”

“Yeah, I’m rolling a roach.”

“But, that’s not…” Galen trailed off. He did not even know where to start this one. After her last big failure to search the web, he just stayed away.
