Really Awful Short Story (Flash Fiction 100)


 

ericjohnbaker has issued a challenge to write the most gosh-awful short story not exceeding 100 words.  I hope I have avoided Mozart’s error when he wrote his ‘Musical Joke’ lampooning talentless composers. Despite himself he produced some good music even with all the deliberate errors, so the joke was on him.  However, I don’t think this ghastly effort has a single virtue:

Reskewed 

It was a dark and stromy nite

Whoa is me I am lost” Jane, pronounced ringing her hands;

The tall dark hansome man rushed, up eagley “I found you and towns; thattaway’ he pronounced, 

Janet saw the moon glint in his wavey fare hare and on his sparking teeth  he was tall and hansome and good looking.  Seeing Jaynes’ beautiful body and beautiful eyes and beautiful legs and clasped her to his bosom.  Falling in love it was more than the temptation could resist.

Then braking lose; “mans gotta do-”  

As he road into the sunset Joan missed him forever.

      Ah, you scared me there for a minute, but I did actually have ‘braking lose’. It is amazing the way the mind substitutes the correct forms without one realising it – I wonder how many of the errors have simply become invisible?
      Glad you thought it was fun!
