Problems of Espionage

by on March 3, 2013

I’ve unfortunately missed out on the past few Trifecta prompts, due to the demands of law school. It’s been tragic. Even if I did learn some fascinating things about Australian voting laws. Anyway. Things have slightly calmed down a bit, so here I am again with a story for Trifecta’s weekend prompt, which was to write 33 words in first-person narrative. I usually go for third-person omniscient, so this was a welcome change of pace. Roll film!

So I’m trying to decide which wire disarms the Kaboominator. My phone chirps. Marsha’s birthday. Crap. Forgot again. I’ll send flowers. Red, maybe. Wait. Red?  I reach to clip the red wire, and-

  1. Haha! “Kaboominator”! Brilliant. Love this so much. And what an ending! 😀

    • The Kaboominator’s one of the more fun weapons I’ve made up. I like to use it whenever I can. 🙂

  2. Distractions will get you every time. Funny twist.

  3. I have a very good friend named Marsha. Her favourite number is 69. She is a lot of fun and could easily prove to be a distraction, too. Good work on the prompt! It was lots of fun, too. 🙂

    Oh no, fatal distraction!

  5. Did the kaboominator go off eh? I heard this loud noise and I can’t hear anything. lol Nice little ditty.

  6. KABOOM! goes the kaboominator . . . oh, my. 🙂

    • As Bugs Bunny once said, “Where’s the kaboom? There’s supposed to be an earth-shattering kaboom!”

    Never text and disarm. (:

  8. Ha! That’ll teach you to forget her birthday. Not that you’ll have much of a chance in the future, I suppose. Should’ve planned ahead… 🙂

    • The best laid plans of mice and men gang aft agley…or something like that. 🙂

  9. Ha!ha!Loved the open end-wonder if he cut the right one after all ;-)Well done!

Laissez Faire

Letting Life Lead

Delight Through Logical Misery

Taking the sayings,thoughts and themes that make us happy and ruining them with science and logic and then might come from that. Or at least some sort of smugness that's very similiar.
