This is a little bit of fun inspired by a re ... ah! But hang on. That would be telling and it's in the story. This is another wild and splendiferous 'quick as a flash story' like the Green Balloon one, but not short enough to be in the Haiku stable (thank God).It is something you may want to read on your way to work to cheer you up before you get there so you can arrive with a smile. Your task then is to see if you can think of daft things through the day to keep that smile emanating sunshine from your face even though your shoulders are slumped in despair. You will then annoy the hell out of your boss and co workers, because the proper job rule book says, 'you do not laugh at work because you're there to work, not to enjoy yourself. Then, when the day you've been counting down to for thirty years comes for you to retire, your workmates will remember that you smiled continuously at work one day years ago, a smile you were wearing when you turned up and maintained all day ... and you will very likely experience the results of people who hate you, putting washers and super market trolley tokens and coins that were rejected from the change converter machine into your collection tin. If that happens, go to the library and get a book on how to be psychokinetic and last thing on a Friday afternoon, do a Carrie, minus the pig's blood and electrocute them all id est put them out of their chronic misery. Then leave the office and go straight to the pub or the wine bar to celebrate, this time with a bigger than ever smile on your face. The only problem you may have is that some people may recognise that particular smile id est Damien Thorne on weed. They will turn to their friends and say, "I bet she has just used psychokinesis like Carrie to electrocute all the people in her office."You will then be kept in a glass cage and observed for many years; dribbling in your white smock ... every great pleasure has a great price (that's a flawed premise). Mind you, just think of all the boring pensioner conversations about the weather you will avoid through not using your real prize ... your new bus pass (40 years + of hard horrible graft = 1 bus pass).Isn't the Wonky Book Quick as a Flash Fiction method more interesting?. --Provided by publisher.
