Giant Plastic Colander of the Soul

He let the stresses of life bleed off and burn away, leaving behind only his inner self.

Trapped inside his shell, life was difficult, but that was why, once a week, he removed his bodiless brain from his metal-and-plastic body, soaked in some formaldehyde, and just relaxed for a while.

I consider this story an informal companion to Like Inside-Out Acupuncture.

NOGARD 10: Zombocalypse

Cliven dove head first into a bush.

He heard snuffling nearby, the sound of a predator searching out its prey.

“Dear Lord,” Cliven prayed, “I know my pet dragon started this whole thing, but… Could you stop the zombies from eating my brain? Please?”

The snuffling stopped.

The zombocalypse didn’t.



“I think I dropped it over here somewhere. It might’ve rolled under something.”

“You should be more careful.”

“I’m sorry! I don’t know how it happened!”

“You’re so absentminded… What did you lose this time, anyways?”

“My brain.”

“What? Are you out of your mind!?”

“No, it’s out of me!”
