Annuciation

“Hi there!” 

“Wha-!” 

“Oh, sorry, I didn’t ….oh dear. That’s gonna stain.” 

“How’d you-“

“Angel. Messenger of God. Heavenly teleportation, yo.” 

“But you’re not-“

“Yeah, I know. No wings and a halo, right? Wings are cliché. I misplaced my halo in Uzbekistan. Long story. Anyway. I’m angelic, really.”

“So… “

“…Oh, right, the message! Yes. Ahem. Your lucky numbers are: seven, nineteen-“

“Seriously?”

“No. Couldn’t resist.”

This story was written for Grammar Ghoul Press’s very first Chimera 66 micro-story challenge. You’re welcome to imagine the angel here as Constance, or not. I left it ambiguous. 🙂

  1. Good one, yo. Cracked me up! Uzbekistan, of all places. Love the dialogue!

    • I was just reading an article about how a New York Times reporter accidentally wrote Kyrzbekistan when he meant Kyrgyzstan, and how sometimes people who aren’t intimately familiar with the geographies of Central Asia might get the various “stan” countries confused. Thus, Uzbekistan. 🙂

  2. Hi Michael. I like this. You must be an angel, yourself with that name, huh?

  3. I suppose someone has to give out the lucky numbers. Good one!

  4. Haha, too funny. Revelation of lucky numbers would be, well, lucky!

  5. Ha! I like a smartass angel. That’s just too funny. I’m still smiling as I write this. A very fun story. 🙂

  6. This made me smile. Just how I’d imagine a modern angel.

  7. I hate when I lose things in Uzbekistan. But I love the angel’s laid-back flippancy. I can almost picture it checking its smartphone. 🙂

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