This Mystery Was Even Greater Than That of the Potholder By Roderick on April 14, 2009 8 When I was fourteen I wrote this happy little story. This week, over three decades later, I wrote this brief sequel. Online Texts, Personal, Science Fiction
Delightful, can not believe you were 14.
to 14 y.o. rlng: very nice, enjoyed your story
to today’s rlng: egads man, please contact your inner child and have him write the sequel.
My inner child may not be reliable. I remember when I was around 12 and was on an airplane, with a big drawing pad in front of me. A stewardess came over and said, “ooh, what are you drawing?” Then she saw I was drawing a werewolf rampage titled “Bloodfest.”
“Oh,” she said.
Goodness, Professor! Did you chance to miss your tea before writing the latter chapter?
Yeah it feels like a Lovecraftian horror in the second part.
thought you might enjoy this twitter
it’s from the point of view of the state
This puts me in mind of an old Kids in the Hall sketch where Kevin McDonald’s character decides to grow a beard while on vacation. The beard is evil (really only mildly bizarre by that show’s standards) and takes over his mind, dominating his life and eventually driving him to his doom.
That story was jawesome!
