Side Effects – Gargleblaster Microstories #211

Jerome’s work dismantling radioactive warheads was difficult.

Then side effects emerged.

“Couldn’t sleep.” Jerome rubbed tired eyes. “I got up.”

“No shit,” stammered Caitlin.


Caitlin pointed at him hovering just beneath the ceiling.

She shuddered, “Good thing we got a roof!”

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.

    Wait till he starts glowing. Then they can switch off the lights and have romantic dinners by a soft green light. Or maybe blue or yellow light. Mind you, he might have to tie himself to the chair 😀

      They sure do! Those commercials for various drugs for things like common allergies, just scare the dickens out of me. Often the side effects are far worse than the problem!


  5. I like this! I got a mental image of Uncle Albert in Mary Poppins floating on the ceiling singing “I love to laugh!”. Brilliant!
