100WW — Boy On a Turtle

0682AED6-C92A-4673-8F8C-B5688347F94AThe legend of the boy on the turtle was well known throughout the village. It was a rainy Monday and the boy didn’t want to get his feet wet. So he summoned his pet tortoise, climbed upon its back, and directed it to carry him across the street to his school. The turtle readily obliged, and the boy managed, despite the downpour, to keep both of his feet dry.

Word of this miracle spread quickly. The town elders commissioned an artist to commemorate the event in bronze and placed the statue in the town’s pond for all villagers to admire.

52515A1B-4DDA-4369-B601-426F4F8FA376The pizza delivery guy rode his bike to the address he was given. Upon arrival, he headed to the front door, rang the doorbell, and waited.

A minute passed before a stunning young woman wrapped in just a bath towel answered the door. She explained that she was in the bathtub, which is why it took so long to answer the door. She motioned for him to step inside, closed the door, and dropped her towel. Then she handed the stunned pizza delivery guy a release form for a new reality TV show on the porn channel, “Pizza Delivery Porn.”

#100WW — The Möbius Strip

22450791-D0E0-4CAE-8A28-2458A30E425E“I feel like my life is tied up in one, big knot. No matter how many steps I take, how many flights I climb, I always end up back where I started. I never make any progress. I just go around and around, up and then down, doing a giant loop-de-loop. My existence is nothing more than a big fat circle game.”

“I see,” said the psychologist. “How long have you been feeling this way?”

“Ever since I went to that amusement park and got on that Möbius Strip ride and couldn’t find my way off of the damn thing.”

6E44303D-5EEC-4028-AF78-D6326386858B“Look, Al,” Helen said, pointing to sky as they walked to their car after picking up a few things at the mall. “Hot air balloons.”

Al looked up and crinkled his brow. “Yes,” he said, “but it’s weird. They usually fly over in the valley, not anywhere near here.”

“They’re pretty,” Helen said.

“I suppose,” Al shrugged as he opened the car’s trunk and put the packages in them. He had just slammed the trunk shut when he heard the first explosion.

“Helen, get in the car!” he shouted when he saw the laser beams. “Those aren’t hot air balloons!”

“My pleasure, sweetie,” Bill said. “I know you wanted to see this band perform live, so I got tickets for you and your mother, who will go with you to the arena tonight.”

A few hours later, Bill’s son got an alert on his iPhone. He read it, ran into the den, and handed it to his father. “Oh my God!” Bill screamed when he read about the mass shooting currently underway at the arena.
