How Do I Look?

“You look terrific,” she told him. “Fantastic, even.”

“You know,” he said, “I *feel* fantastic. Maybe even marvelous!”

“Whoa, hold on. I don’t know about marvelous… Fantastic is one thing. Marvelous is something else entirely.”

“Oh.” He shuffled his feet awkwardly. “Well how about… wonderful?”

“Sure, I’ll give you wonderful.”


This story was based on the prompt “fantastic” at TypeTrigger.

The Gentlemanly Badger

“Do come in!” offered Gerald Bradge. “I have some tea on.”

Gerald was a softhearted older gentleman who had unfortunately grown a dark, heavy set of down-turned eyebrows, which had significantly damaged his reputation.

He had his pride, but I’d brought my clippers and chloroform this time.

He needed me.
