Dragon Sim (200 Words) “One day,” said Michael, “they’ll invent machines that are so good they aren’t even machines anymore. Then we won’t have to do this kind of thing.” Jen glanced at her companion. He crouched on the floor of their transport while the other two trainees, across from her, looked out the windowsContinue reading “Dragon Sim”
Battle Scooter (168 Words) You must know that humankind isn’t the only kind that places value on physical exercise. It comes very easily to birds and horses and bumblebees. It isn’t at all natural to goblins.
Wallie and I thought we had this blog thing under control until we hit the Daily Post Prompt “Funnel.” On a ten o’ clock morning that feels like 2 above freezing, we decided that, while we have not quite reversed our affection for the cold, we have funnelized it. To the Winter Cold My loveContinue reading “Funnel Trouble”
A Happy New Year from “Wallie’s Wentletrap!” New Year We wait upon the next New Year But we are far from new, my dear; There is reflection in your gaze That lingers on the dimming days Likewise a line that thins your cheek And marks the weary way of weeks— The minutes making months andContinue reading “Welcome New Year — 2018”
Well, Wallie and I couldn’t think of anything more extravagant than a warm welcome aboard an alien spaceship. So, as prompted– *** ‘Welcome, and all aboard!

To bolster our vocabulary, instead of reading we wrote a series of shortContinue reading “How to Fail the GRE and Enjoy the Fall”
Yesterday, the Imp and I read a most provocative post prompt. The “Brand New You, Effective Tomorrow,” was very interesting to me—I have a secret itch to be the hula hoop artist in Cirque du Soleil—but Wallie was indignant. He couldn’t think of anyone he would rather be. He told my friend in Impish (theContinue reading “Eight Arms and Six Eyes”
It has been a long time since Wallie last posted anything. For this he apologizes. It has not been an easy November (or December) for the poor little imp. This is our response to the Daily Prompt–relating a time when ‘everything seemed to be going wrong and then, suddenly, you knew it would be right.’Continue reading “The Mouth of Wagoc”
