The Purr-fect Storm
"Boy, it was one terrible storm last night where we live!"
"I heard! It was all over the news. Power lines down, roads impassible, some people had to abandon their homes!"
"You should have seen the storm clouds! Looked like the end of the world. No wonder the sky burst forth!"
"So what happened to you guys? Did you have a flooded out basement?"
"Worse. Way worse."
"What did you get?!!"
"Three German Shepherds, two Siamese, and one very ornery Schnauzer."
"God, I hate it when it rains cats and dogs."
And I hate it when I'm this late to the punch with my Friday Fictioneers entry for the week, but at least I brought this one in at a very respectable 91 words, thank you very much.
I was pleased to be featured yesterday on the prestigious humor site McSweeney's Internet Tendency, which printed my piece "The Fountain of Middle Age." You see, the fabulous fabled Fountain of Middle Age is the best fountain a Boomer can hope for; I plan to inject the waters intravenously. Watch me drop way down in age all the way to 57!
