Something new

I regret writing this.

Wait, I just re-read it and changed my mind. I think it’s okay now.


The Hole

I dug a hole in the backyard.

The hole asked, “Why did you dig me?”

I said that I wanted the company.

The hole said, “Okay. Now what?”

I said I didn’t know.

The hole said, “Well, would you fill me with water so I can be a pond?”

I said okay and put the hose in the hole and turned on the water. While the hole was filling up, I hummed.

The hole said, “That’s a nice song.”

I said, “Really? Thanks!”



The Reason

God took me to see a movie called, The Best of Times.

Afterwards God asked, “What did you think?”

I said, “Why did you recommend I see that movie? It was sooo boring. Everyone was happy through the whole movie. Nothing bad happened. There was no suspense or drama. I thought I was going to go out of my head.”

God said, “I wanted you to know why I don’t give you most of the things you pray for.”




I was sitting on the couch, trying to write, when the ghost of Edgar Allen Poe showed up. The ghost of Poe said, “What are you writing, my friend?”

I said a story.

The ghost of Poe said, “How is it coming along?”

I said that it was okay, but not very interesting.

The ghost of Poe said, “A story is served best when basic. To add trills and thrills for the sake of interest calls attention to the writing. The reader will lose interest and you’ll have wasted both your times.”

I said okay.
