Prompt: “It’s back-to-school time. You are reading over your child’s school supply list, and there, between the filler paper and three ring binder, was something quite unexpected. What was it?”
Response: A Surprise Requirement
Author: Eric Storch
Prompt: “You could see the man with the uncombed brown hair and the wrinkled khakis at the same street corner every day for two years. At 1 o’clock on Monday, he ate a peanut butter sandwich, at 2 o’clock Tuesday he had a doughnut, and the rest of the week he had a vegetable of one kind or another at exactly 3:15. It never seemed like he ate enough to sustain himself, which may be why he hasn’t been seen for over a month.”
Prompt: “‘We are ready for the siege. We are armed up to the teeth. Be careful how you live and breathe. Release what’s brewing underneath.’ –Silversun Pickups, ‘The Royal We’”
Response: Deader and Gone
