Dangerous Liaison – Gargleblaster Microstories #263

“Mrs. Henretty,” said Dr. Knowles. “Your son fell three stories. He’s alright.”

“He with that Jones widow again?” snarled Petunia.

“Yes, Ma’am.”

“He hurt anythin’ vital?”

“He received a concussion.”

“Busted his head?”

“Yes, Ma’am.”

“That’s alright. He weren’t usin’ it anyways.”

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.

    LOL he certainly isn’t using his head if he’s climbing three stories to visit widow Jones. Something tells me his head is going to be even worse when his Ma gets her hands on him 🙂 How you came up with this story from the prompt amazes me.

      Oh his head will be okay, but he won’t be using his butt for about a week. And the chores he’ll get, he’ll be too tired for Mrs. Jones. 😉 I’m quite happy to come up with this crazy stuff. I don’t know where it comes from either…but I like it. 😉 Thanks Lyn! 🙂

    Yup, anyone who’d rather fall three stories than hide in a closet deserves the concussion.

      That’s what I’m thinkin’. Then again, maybe hiding in the closet has been done before? Maybe hiding on the window sill hasn’t been done much for a reason… 😉 Thanks kindly! 🙂

    OK, I’m still confused. If he’s living with his mother, is he old enough for this? And if she’s a widow, and presumably the town bicycle, who is he hiding from? There’s no husband to come home and be mad.

    • EagleAye says:

      Well, I’m guessing he’s about 16. “Physically” old enough anyway. He wouldn’t be the first boy to get his cherry popped by a “Mrs. Robinson.” At that age boys won’t say no to a hot older woman. And she has a stable of men who “come calling,” including the 6’4″ town bully who thinks he and Mrs. Jones are exclusive. 😉
