Vampires from the sky

 

Not really.

    Dear Doug,

    Your minimalist approach to storytelling is particularly intiguing in this piece.

        Dear Doug,

        I’m expecting at least a 98 word story next week. I enjoyed the trip. Be back in the fall. Yankee Lima India

    With this title I was expecting some blood curdling story. Funny shortest story.

      Dear Indira,

      Thanks. Brevity is the soul of wit and vampires are the refuge of…. Oh, never mind. There’s no such thing.

      He can probably sit on an ice cream cone and tell you what flavor it is.

        WOW. You kiss people with that mouth?

      • rochellewisoff July 11, 2014 at 8:07 pm #

        Did I say something profane? (Bats her eyelashes and adjusts her halo.)

        Not you, sugarcane. I’m dying to ask Doug about the backstory for this one. Who pissed him off now? Or was this just an exercise in eye-rolling?

      • rochellewisoff July 11, 2014 at 8:13 pm #

        Ah…well I’ll let him do the ‘splainin’. 😉

    You kill me 🙂 Now, how am I going to explain these little marks on my neck to Connie?

      Hi Russell,

    Thanks for the chuckle, Doug! I actually toyed briefly with the idea of an “other worldly” theme this week before going with a touch of Midwestern realism.

    Cheers!

    I prefer very short vampire novels with a little fang to them.
    Ha. This was great.

    Doug, call me a ninny if you like – I had to read this twice before I laughed out loud!!!

    • dmmacilroy July 12, 2014 at 10:38 am #

      Dear Ninny,

      I fixed it:) Thanks for stopping by to read twice and laugh.

      Aloha,

      Doug

    I had to read it twice, as well! Well-done! Love your sense of humor!

  15. patriciaruthsusan July 12, 2014 at 3:26 pm #

    Doug, I had to go back over that one also. Creative. 🙂 —Susan

    Do you get to bank the other 98 words to use another time?
    😀

    • dmmacilroy July 14, 2014 at 5:43 am #

      Dear El,

      I think that I still owe FF a few words for my slack adherence to the 100 word limit over the last two years. It would be nice to think I could though….

      Aloha,

      Doug

    I laughed, I cried, I was moved, I was humbled, I was exalted, and my life changed forever. Thank you, Doug.

    • dmmacilroy July 14, 2014 at 5:42 am #

      Dear Perry,

      You forgot to add those two special words….the ones that made my story what it was….not really.

      I’ll try to do better next time.

      Aloha,

      Doug

    Dear Doug, I had to read it twice also, of course it only took an instant! You are so flippin funny! Nan 🙂
