Drats! That damned mouse stole my cheese

  • Drats! That damned mouse stole my cheese again. It was day 47, and the vermin was stealing my expensive cheddar cheese. I walked around the apartment slowly, with a shotgun in my

  • The natives are restless. Day 72:Lost sherpas In deepest darkest Peruvian jungle. Track marks of an upright walking great rat on the Ucayali. King Rat's pyramid complex is not far!

  • Day 77: Found it! King Rat's pyramid is ours. Day 78: Heard strange noises during the night. Toby Ex went into the jungle and still hasn't returned. Peru doesn't seem to

  • I was in Chicago, buying all the herbal remedies and vitamins I would need for one year.I also got ginseng. The Vietnamese business district sold everything I needed.

  • But when I asked for an Infinity Blossom they close their shops in my face. But not just the Vietnamese but with all Earthlings. Was it possible that the Earth still lives in Now?

  • Now. What a fine, round word it is, and what a fine, round experience, too- unshattered by the past and unshaded by the future. I decided against the blossom in favor of now.

    Nice ending, Woab. Seems like the restless adventurer found his peace. (Just guessing, but maybe it was a she who like wearing lederhosen)

    Thankee, Slim. I didn't know where to go with it, so I just focused on the last word.

    ill-fated archeological expedition horror stories are my favorite. 1. An expedition enters the jungle on a quest to find a lost city. 2. They suffer horribly from parasites, diseases, hunger etc. 3. Their superstitious native guides desert them. 4. They find their goal. 5. An ancient evil kills them or drives them mad. 6. Only one makes it out alive. He babbles an insane story which cannot possibly be true.

    Yes, yes, that's where I was going too. But King Rat is real, so real!

    It's a pity amoebas have infested your brain. Now the world will never know what really happened.
