For a change, a fun tag. The goal, inspired by this is to write a short story in 55 words or less. My def­i­n­i­tion of a short story is wider than yours, so here’s my, um… , effort.

A blog­ger dies and goes to heaven. A few weeks into his stay, he runs into Dar­win. Talk tended to evo­lu­tion, naturally.

He asks Dar­win about the only evo­lu­tion blog­gers care about — how peo­ple evolve from Insignif­i­cant Microbes to Mor­tal Humans and beyond.

Good con­tent,” he replied.

Is that all?”

And Intel­li­gent Design.”

Thanks Prash for the tag (and a neat story!) — I had so much fun doing this. Maybe I’ll do more…


Here are the peo­ple I’d like to tag:



DoZ. Link to story.

Gay­athri. Link to story.

Tilo. Link to out­sourced sto­ries 😉

Sybil. Link to story.

Swami. Link to story.

Update: Here’s another one.

It was love at first sight — vul­ner­a­ble me and the irre­sistible sono­fabitch. We went home together that night, get­ting along fab­u­lously till my sis­ter moved in. She started to like him.

This morn­ing I wake up, and they’re both gone.

I’m call­ing the cops: no one takes my Labrador away from me.
