August/September flash challenge

Anyone see the first half of August lying around? I swear it was here a minute ago...

Anyhew, the next challenge is entitled "RTFM". What is actually *in* those shrink wrapped tomes in the bottom drawer? Do you sell your soul every time you blindly click "I agree"?

One thousand words or less, any genre. I would prefer some dialogue, but won't hold a lack of it against you. PM your entries to me by midnight on the 31st...

I just felt a great shifting in the Force ...
I was raised by humans. What's your excuse?

Re: August/September flash challenge

I going to try to get one in. Been very busy lately. My wife broke her hip and helping her has taken up much of my time. Pus, I've been busy with the Roof Garden Chorus--I'm the president this year--in getting ready for our concert September 30. Plus the Veterans administration has me going to the hospital for the effect of agent orange. I feel great, don't seem to have any of the symptoms, but the VA wants to keep an eye on me for that and other medical problems associated with serving a year in Vietnam!


And do you know what's crazy? If a U.S. veteran of the Vietnam War goes back to Vietnam as a tourist, he/she is treated like some hero! Now that's insane. I've talk with one that went back to Hue, Vietnam, and he told me that the Vietnameses acted like they were going to give him the key to the city!! He was just joking, but he said they treated him very well!


Just thought I'd mention a few things that float around in my mind.
