From my perspective Mark you could flesh this original out and turn it into a dystopian/sci-fi/fantasy novel. I wouldn’t mind knowing if Henry ever left that egg… especially since we only have about 8 years until he makes his fateful decision.
Hmm. I can honestly say that thought never crossed my mind…but it may be worth exploring. We shall see.
Also, I’ve got two other short stories and a one-act play I wrote in college. Based on your positive feedback, I might just go ahead and share those in the near future. If, of course, I keep posting every day this month. I’m still on the fence about that…
I was scrolling through Facebook today and came upon a memory I posted seven years ago. It actually dates back to…umm…1976?
Yes, that is me. I remember those pants well: they were my favorites! And I was thrilled with my Steve Austin Six Million Dollar Man action figure, a gift for my must’ve been 7th birthday? I loved that show, and this action figure was just about the coolest toy I ever owned. I remember, you could look through the bionic eye and roll up the rubber skin over his arms to reveal bionics. Man, they don’t make toys like that anymore, do they? It would probably be worth a small fortune today, but alas, I have no idea what ever happened to ol’ Steve.
Lee Majors, on the other hand? Still kickin’ it at 81. Long live the Bionic Man!
Also, can I just point out the awesomeness of that VERY ’70s couch? So cool! In a retro, ironic way, of course. As were the lamp and end table beside it.
I miss that decade so very much.
Still not sure if I’m writing every day this month…
