“Big Trouble” (A 100 Word Short Story)

Preface: Don’t get too excited. I don’t know if this will become a permanent feature again or not. All I know is that when I pasted all my earlier 100-word stories together for this page, I realized that for the most part I really enjoyed writing them.

And you have no idea how hard it was for me to resist putting a little mini commentary with each one.

So here’s a new 100 Word Story for you. And all I will say is that it is based on a rejected series of radio spots I wrote for a client at my day job, and I liked the spots enough to keep the idea from going to waste. Their loss is your gain. Or not. – JCF


Things came apart when the police caught me driving in the penguin mascot costume. Now it’s all over between us – she won’t speak to me, her father won’t be out for another six months, and I’ll never be able to look at a hamster again without weeping. But I did learn few things. For example, I learned that you can’t return certain pieces of clothing after they’ve been worn, and you can’t replace your future mother-in-law’s cat. In any event, when I get these casts off, I’m going to make things right. If I ever get a next time.
