    Electricity was off. They took stairs, began long flight, telling stories to each other. First the wife mentioned about her busy day, it ended at 21 st storey. Still they had one more floor. Then husband narrated a short story, 'I just noticed, I have forgotten keys in car.'

    The Joys of Being Too Old

    “I never cheated on you before. I won’t tease Tom ever again.”

    “Hey! It’s alright. You’re too old to get knocked up and I’m too old to chase fellas off you.”

    “You sure chased off Tom fast enough.”

    “I only hope the kids are mine.”

    “Yeah. Me, too.”

    Today we all got together and celebrated Max's 100th birthday. As always, everyone had a nice time, and he seemed to enjoy the attention, compliments, and gifts. And, as always, the elephant in the room went unspoken: dogs really aren't supposed to live this long.

    “Take me as I am, or watch me as I go.”

    She said this softly, while looking into tired eyes that were restrained; yet still encapsulated a hint of compassion from earlier times.

    Outside, the fog hung over Edwards Square and droplets disseminated over the silent visage outside the window.

    Heart drumming, Adam prays. He flings the door open and shut. Coast is clear, noone's there. Re-open, fling door shut, and hasten down the stairs. Leave this party forthwith. Pity whoever enters next, discovering the broken toilet brimming with Adam's extension.

    Sue enters.

    a short story/poem in 45 words

    HE keeps the wind in his hand
    HE made appear the dry land
    HE made in his image a perfect man
    HE cried when man went bad
    HE came himself to make things right
    HE came to draw us by HIS side.
    HE is God

    45 words tell a story

    I am glad this thread is picking up again. Now to try to think of something to say in fifty words or less.

    Almost Friends

    The farmhouse rests on a flat, grain-growing, dusty, wonderful world. I am three. Outside I want to meet the dog who guards the farm.

    Then I am on the ground. Someone says they will shoot that dog. Another stitches my eyebrow and cheek. I did not mean to frighten him.

    Behind the glass, the girl greeted the man.
    “Hello, my name is Eve.”
    “Hello, Eve” the man replied. “My name is Dr. Adams. I was invited to meet with you. I heard that you were a very special girl.”
    “Yes, I can think, so I am,” the robot replied.
