Birthday greetings and a Drabble

Happy birthday to diachrony, to melissabot,


and to novichok74


Here is a drabble; not specifically for anyone's birthday. A rather different outcome to 'Graduation Day'. PG, 100 words.


Union of the Snake


Mayor Richard Wilkins III gulped down the last of the students and paused to survey the wreckage of the High School. He was smoke-blackened, even singed, but unharmed. “You performed admirably,” he praised his vampire minions. “It seems almost a shame to do this, but I’m still hungry, so…” He opened his huge jaws and lunged.

“I must admit that I was worried for a moment,” he mused, “when I realized that I was being led into a trap. I’m glad that they didn’t know of my one vulnerability.” He gobbled down the last vampire before voicing the secret. “Hummus.”

Just shows it is not wise to dismiss options out of hand. Very nice!

Ok, just this once turning into a snake did work. Even the evil overlord list can be wrong sometimes.

And that comment has given me an idea for another drabble...

I must confess, ??? I need to go watch that season, I think. Oh, the deficits the aging process imposes on memory.

I've learned the entire series off by, uh, what do you call it, funny shaped thing in the middle of your chest?

'Twas fabulous. And it's funny, but hummus is my one weakness, too. (Shh, don't tell).

Hee!

Damn! They should have listened to Oz.

(Is "Union of the Snake" a play on "State of the Union"?)

Re: Hee!

Thank you!

Actually 'Union of the Snake' is the title of a Duran Duran song.
