Last in Line

โ€˜Push me again buddy, see what happens.โ€™

โ€˜Hey Iโ€™m not your buddy.โ€™

โ€˜You wanna go?โ€™

A fight broke out at the front of the line. Merv backed away. A shoe flew into the air and landed behind him.

โ€˜Things are starting to fall apart,โ€™ he said.

Lou nodded. โ€˜Maybe thereโ€™s another bus?โ€™

Merv shook his head.

A blood curdling scream exploded. Everyone turned to see a woman being dragged away. โ€˜Itโ€™s too late, theyโ€™re already here.โ€™ Merv grabbed Louโ€™s hand and they raced to a nearby store.

Hiding behind the counter, they watched as the monsters ripped the crowd apart.

  1. As we always told our kids when camping out, “We don’t have to run faster than the bears, we just have to run faster than you.” I wonder why they’re both in therapy.

    1. Lol! That’s awesome, I’m going to have to remember that. As a good friend of mine says, some parents save for their kids college, she saves for their therapy. I’m working on my children’s therapy fund as we speak ๐Ÿ˜‰
