A Story A Day Challenge 2017

Hi everyone!

Yep, you read the title right. I’m once again going down the hole of insanity to share my perverse and warped sense of humor among other things as I attempt another #StoryADayChallenge.

The only problem is I took an extra day to make up my mind, so I’m sharing both yesterday’s and today’s post in this post. he rest shall post at their normal time of 2 PM EST every day, or until my muse and I run out of ideas. In 2015, I didn’t expect to make it past March, but I finished the year. Hopefully, I’ll have the same success this year. The rules remain the same as 2015’s challenge. Each story will be a 100 word Flash Fiction piece.

Time to get 2017 off to a great start! Enjoy everyone! 😀

For yesterday…

Roast Glory

There was nothing Reggie liked more than a good barbeque.

The food was great, the conversation was great, but seeing one of his relatives rotating on the spit over the burning coal-filled pit was the best part.

It was the selecting which family member to roast that was difficult.

Ever since the Great Depression, they drew lots to see who would be honored as feeding the family. Only the person hosting the barbeque was exempt.

As Reggie drizzled more his famous sauce over his cousin Laura, he couldn’t help but wonder when it would be his turn to be roasted.

And for today…

Comeuppance

Wendy sat practicing her needlepoint when the phone rang. Pushing her spectacles back onto the bridge of her nose, she reached over for the old-fashioned rotary phone.

“Hello?”

“Wendy? It’s Britney. Have you seen the news yet?”

Wendy rolled her eyes at the tone of her friend’s voice. “No, I don’t watch TV. It rots your brain, or wasn’t Chuck’s aneurism enough to prove that?”

“It was caused by stress. Why did I call you, anyway.”

“Because you’re lonely, dear.”

Britney paused as the newsman announced the killer was still at large in the neighborhood. “I guess it’s not important.”

About CP Bialois

Where do I begin? Well first I guess it's only fair to say that CP Bialois isn't my real name. It's a collaboration I made out of the three greatest pets anyone could ever want. My real name is Ed and I'm just an average person that has found a way to do what he loves. For as long back as I can remember I loved to pretend. Whether it was with my Transformers, GI Joe, or He-Man toys I loved to create intricate plots and have them fight it out. As a fan of horror, science fiction, action, and comedy I dare say my taste in movies are well rounded. Some of my favorites were Star Wars, Star Trek, martial arts, and anything with Swarzenegger in them. I'd write my own stories about the characters I saw in the theaters or TV or I'd just daydream about what I'd see myself as the hero of course. You can't have a daydream without beating the bad guys, getting the girl, etc. It's just not right to envision yourself as a flunky or sidekick. As far as books I loved Sherlock Holmes, Treasure Island, Dracula, and the normal assortment. My early love was the Star Trek novels, I'd read them or the Hardy Boys relentlessly. For a time I could tell you the plot of over a hundred books not to mention comics. I have to come clean and say that I learned to read because of comic books. I was bored, make that extremely bored when we started to read in school. Reading "the cat fell down" really didn't interest me. My dad, who continues to astound me with his insight to this day, figured comics would work. With that in mind he went to the newstand in town and bought issues of Donald Duck, Scrooge McDuck, Tales From the Crypt, and Spider-man. He patiently read through them with me until I picked it up. Whether it was him or the comics I learned to read in about two weeks and for a while few were as good as I was. For years after that whenever we'd go out he'd always spring for a couple of comic books for me. While it wasn't exactly the perfect beginning everything I've ever read or have seen has influenced me in some way and now is the time I'd like to share some of the ideas I've had over the years with all of you. I hope you enjoy my stories, they're always fun to write and I don't see myself stopping anytime soon.
