BATTERED WIFE (the sequel, as requested by Top Cat)
Gripping the knife tightly she tiptoed through the house. The rhythmic breathing of her sleeping children caressed her ears. Pausing outside their door she listened to this gentle sound, inhaling its sweet insinuation.Would she be the instrument of more destruction? Returning to the kitchen, she let the knife fall unheeded from her helpless hands.
ONE FOR MY INBOX
Once upon a time, a guy asked a girl, "Will you marry me?" The girl said "No" and she lived happily ever after and went shopping, drank martinis with friends, always had a nice, clean house, never had to cook, had a closet full of shoes and handbags, stayed skinny, and was never farted on.
This second piece was forwarded to me by Ann, who recieved it from her dsaughter. It was doing the rounds of London banks as a joke email. I just happened to notice that it was an accidental 55 flash.
