Belligerent Barrister

“You must sue,” said Bernard.

“Do I have to? I’m not feeling all that litigious.”

Bernard scratched his head. He had never had such a stubborn client before. “I’m afraid it’s your only option,” he repeated.


“Yes, you must, Sue. You see, I am wearing my law suit today.”

This story was based on a title suggested by Timothy Maness.


He’d purchased the seventy-five foot yacht on a whim. With a fortune like his, such a toy was a trifle.

The first time he took it out, he “accidentally” ran over three sailboats and threw some lawyers overboard to handle it.

Bartholomew Regis Alberto Tanardier never thought about his initials.

@Charles_Mor told me to write a story about boats, so I did.

TIM SEVENHUYSEN: First Impressions

This story was based on a call on Twitter for the first five words of a story. @Scithancer provided the words, “While strolling through the forest”.

While strolling through the forest, he saw a spaceship land. The aliens, in shining suits, approached and shook his hand.

They asked him many questions
to test where mankind stood
but since he was a lawyer the outcome was not good.

Despairing, they departed, and left him in the wood.
