Sigh 2.0
by
Tom B. Taker

The typewriter atop the little red doghouse furiously clacked…

“Here’s the high-tech visioneer ascending the stage. Suddenly…”

Meanwhile, in an overly-elaborate thought bubble…

The houselights dimmed and a hush rippled through the assembled guests. The curtains parted and he stepped out.

The crowd went wild.

A master of audience manipulation with a flair for histrionics, he waited patiently for the perfect moment.

Then, triumphantly, he seized the red bowl in his mouth and held it above his head, dramatically revealing it for all to see.

The crowd exploded in frenzy.

“I give you the iBowl!” he emoted.

Charlie looked up from the typewritten page. “Good grief!” he cried.

Blogdramedy’s The Dog Days of Summer writing challenge commands victims participants to author ten stories, ten days in a row, consisting of exactly 110 words each. All stores are themed based on dogs that she has pre-selected. For more information about the challenge and to view the work of other participants, please click the link. But only if you want stories that have real teeth.

    1. It might but only after you sit up and beg. The dish pictured will send a tweet when the water level gets low. Now that’s useful technology!
