Friday’s Super Short Stories!

Fascinating Quote of the Week: “I woke up and felt that there was a lump on my belly. The Dr told me it was part of my skull.” From the book about Malala. They removed top portion of her skull and kept it in her belly until another surgery to put it back on. Never had heard of a medical procedure like that before!

If aliens abducted you, what are two reasons they would release you?

When your 23 year old wants to play Candyland again …. What is a game you remember playing when you were little or with your kids?

  1. And that – the piece of skull in my belly – is why I look fat and no, I’m not pregnant!

    Only 2 reasons the aliens would release me? Well, okay then… #1, because my farts are obnoxiously stinky and I fart a lot. #2, because my farts are so loud that they can break the sound barrier and I fart a lot.

    Candyland and Chutes and Ladders are the first games I remember playing.

    Oh, and did I mention that my farts are stinky and loud, and I would win games by default because the other players would quit so they could move away from me?

  2. I’m trying to envision what it would be like to have a portion of one’s skull in one’s belly … and trying to imagine any reason that would have been the docs best alternative … and I’m drawing a blank in both cases!

    They would release me because … I would drive them battier than they already are as I pushed all the buttons and pulled all the levers in their spaceship, continually asking, “What does this one do?” and “What happens if I push this?” Only thing is, I think they’d just open the hatch and shove me out, rather than put me back where they got me!

    I might well be the only person in the U.S. who has never, not once, played CandyLand … and I don’t feel that I missed out on anything. Checkers, Chess, Monopoly, Battleship … those were my childhood games!


    • They actually said if it wasn’t for the knowledge of her top surgeon that she wouldn’t have survived! But yes reading that about her skull just made my jaw drop!

      Haha!! I would be curious about all the buttons too!

      Ooh yes, “you sunk my battleship!” And played many Monopoly games. πŸ™‚
