Gallery – A Six Sentence Story

“All those tiny people in the gallery don’t know it but they’re at the center of the universe,” Mark asserted.

George protested, “The universe doesn’t have a center.” 

And so the claims and counter-claims of George and Mark came and went, often nowhere. Where would one want them to go? Should they flutter to the whatchamacallit radio source at Sagittarius A*?

“And,” Mark continued, “if those tiny people in the gallery are at the center of the universe they’re right smack dab where they ought to be.”

Twist – A Six Sentence Story

Gerald said the only problem with Tim’s life was that it had no twist to it.  

This surprised him.  He owned a multi-trillion-dollar company that gave the Moon a sustainable atmosphere allowing mass colonization.  His manipulated philanthropic foundations kept the world rational during the Second Propaganda War.  As he saw it, twist or no twist, someone should give him a medal (and many had).

Gerald admitted he couldn’t pin down precisely what bothered him about Tim except to say, “The only twist I see in your life, Tim, is that you were born, but that should have been just the beginning.”

Bend – A Six Sentence Story

We didn’t care that Jim was short on brains. We all liked him.

However, a few weeks ago he must have taken the wrong turn at a bend in some alley. He stopped clubbing and fooling around with us when we chased stuff that didn’t want to be chased. He even refused to help us tip dumpsters.

We couldn’t figure out what was wrong with him, but we all knew he was a certified idiot when he finally told us that he had smartened up.
