Half Minute Horrors

cs10 told me about a fabulous new children's book called Half Minute Horrors. They were inviting new submissions, so I wrote one for cs10.


"File Under 'Friends, Robot — Important Considerations' "

Do not say to your robot friend,

"There is more than one way to skin a cat,"

Unless you have more than one cat.

Awesome. Though more of a five second horror.

Halfway through a conversation, stop and whisper "Somebody died here."

(OK, I guess that's more of a recipe than a horror itself)

Glad you liked it, Dan. Sort of a "horror haiku." Steven King I'm not.

(Oops. Stupid Internets. Everything's been done.)
