Careful What You Say – Gargleblaster Microstories #201

Dr. Marx patted the robotic surgeon. “Be careful what you say. It interprets sayings as literal directives.”

Director King observed the patient’s ten thumbs. “Really?”

Marx nodded. “We should reprogram it.”

King sighed. “Okay. Better than a sharp stick in the eye.”

About EagleAye

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.

    Great stuff, Eric. You have a way with witty brevity. (The link to microstories wasn’t working for me . . . Don’t know if that’s an issue on my end, your end or theirs, but I might want to play along sometime. Need to keep my creativity flowing.)

    All my best,
    Marie Gail

      Thank you! Glad you liked it. I posted this a tad early. I think the link won’t work until tomorrow when they open the grid for the gargleblasters. I’ve got a busy day tomorrow so I’m writing in advance. I’m looking forward to see what what you write. Thanks for stopping in!
