Literally Speaking – Gargleblaster Microstories #238

Ashley looked out the door and groaned. “It’s my ex.”

Ben bristled, “Trouble?”

“He’s a bull-headed bastard!”

“Let me handle this.” Ben walked out.

“Wait!” Ashley shouted, “He’s really bull-headed. He’s a Minotaur!”

Ben began screaming.

Ashley winced. “Watch the horns, Ben!”


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.

      Yeah, Ben isn’t going to be sitting on the couch for a few weeks. 😉 Maybe in the future he’ll listen to Ashley before he goes charging off somewhere…without looking. She did try to warn him after all. Glad you enjoyed this one. Thanks so much, Kathy! 🙂
