The Scout

Rainbows
The day that the Supreme Court declared that gay marriage was now legal in all 50 states, many people proudly displayed rainbow flags, changed their social networking icons to rainbow colors, and professed that love won. The Empire State Building, …
Coward of
Tommy may have been the coward of the county, but Billy was the coward of the state. Every time they met, it took a team of lawyers to figure out the jurisdiction issues. A judge worked out a reasonable solution: Tommy was the coward of the county,…
Upgrades
Since the last time I was on an airplane, I lost forty-five pounds. I don’t need the seat upgrade anymore. But I sure do miss the free drinks. Oh, and the legroom. That’s always a plus. Where else can you spend thirty bucks to get three more inches…
Varsity
Johnny made varsity. Football? Baseball? Basketball? No. Field hockey. Varsity field hockey. Yes, I know it’s a girl’s sport, but Johnny’s kinda girly and small. Still, he’s a feisty little shrimp, and he looks kinda cute in the knee socks and skir…
The End
Tell my friends that I loved them. Who are my friends? Good question. Those who know that I loved them, know. Those who don’t know that I loved them, it’s my fault for not telling them. Those who think they know that I loved them, but I didn’t real…
Weekly Challenge #690 – CURRENT
Lizzie Richard Tom Serendipidy Norval Joe Planet Z LIZZIE The current state of affairs is grim. What did I do to deserve this. All I wanted was a little garden with a touch of originality. But that greenish tone. I hate it. It makes me want to p…

Robot Grandmother
After Mom died, Dad needed a little help around the house. So, he bought a robot grandmother. No, she didn’t run on electricity, like the grandmother in Ray Bradbury’s story. This grandmother ran on coal. She was as big as a locomotive. And we had …
Kidney Stones
I woke up in brutal agony. The right side of my back was absolute murder. At first, I thought it was food poisoning, but club soda didn’t help. We went to the hospital, and I waited for two hours in the waiting room, moaning and crying. Eventually,…
Take the right one
I woke up in agony. My first two kidney stones ever. From my right kidney. They say this is the closest a man can come to experiencing the pain of childbirth. Except, instead of a 6 to 7 pound baby, it’s 4 millimeter-wide crystals. I’ll call them A…
The Bombs
The first explosion bloodies the legs of everyone at the sidewalk cafe. A bomb filled with screws and nails, covered in rat poison to keep the wounds bleeding. Smoke and screams, cries for help. Bind them with napkins and tablecloths until help arr…
Good movies coming
A lot of good movies are coming to the theater, but at my age, it’s a challenge to make it through an entire movie without needing to go to the bathroom. Now that I’m on Flomax, it’s even more of a challenge. Just one sip of water or lemonade, and …
It’s hard to write when
It’s hard to write stories when you’re doubled over in pain and clutching your gut and back. You can’t see the screen or reach the keys. Pen and paper doesn’t work when you’re curled up in a tub of water, crying and waiting for the pills to kick in…

Open the door
They open the doors and call out a name that isn’t mine. They open the doors and call out another name that isn’t mine. Over and over, they open the doors and call out names that aren’t mine. Why won’t they call my name? Why won’t they help me? Why…
Smartwatch
I bought a smartwatch. It looks really cool. Sure, it’s clunky and heavy on my wrist, and I have to charge it every night, but it looks cool. The metal band gets caught in my arm hair, and it rips out hairs all day long. Still, it looks cool. It qu…
Better
Turn on your pad. Put in your buds. Surf, read, listen. You can do it all. Everything’s online. Information, books, music. It’s all there. If it’s not online, it doesn’t exist. Newspapers? Gone. Libraries? Gone. Records? Tapes? CDs? Gone. Money, to…
The last time
I can’t remember the last time it snowed. Oh, it gets cold here. And it rains. But it never snows. “Why doesn’t it snow here?” I asked my mother. But she doesn’t know why. “Ask your father,” she says. He didn’t know either. My teachers didn’t know.…
Nightmare bell
There are two locks on our front door. One is a normal lock, and the other is a deadbolt. You can’t disengage the deadbolt from outside, so I’m not supposed to lock it when I get home from work. Otherwise, Gina can’t get in when she gets home. We h…
