You Know What Happened In Office Today?

You know what happened in office today?
As I reached my desk
I looked outside the window
Only to see the clouds burst in flames
A giant fiery bird flew out of the smoke
Landed straight at my window
Gave me a deathly stare
Was abducted soon after by a UFO
After all the drama ended
I sat down to do my work
But a couple of burglars broke in
Beat me up and kidnapped me
None of my colleagues moved a muscle
As they dragged me with them
They checked my wallet and pockets
Found kryptonite on me
Dumped me in a nearby field
I had to walk back home
My boss will be furious tomorrow
I missed the deadline today

  1. This was a nice and entertaining read! I enjoyed the escalation of events throughout and the buildup to the last line was great. It was pretty fun to read! Definitely a good piece. I’ll be sticking around to see what other work you do. πŸ™‚

  2. …. … Isn’t it now two year anniversary? Or do aliens not celebrate something so special as an anniversary? I can’t help it, but it seems I heard this story somewhere a few times ago, it was somehow also in my mind. But could be wrong also. πŸ˜‰ ☺ who knows. Something like that happens from time to time in international companies, does it? Insane, actually. And what’s with the “deathly stare”? Not “star”, really? Sorry, is just such an upsetting story.
    ☻ Your readers really believe everything… that is the sign for a very good storyteller. ☺

  3. I love this!! It reminds me a lot of Dr. Seuss’s “And to Think that I Saw it on Mulberry Street!” Great imagination, and I love how you tied it in with the real world, as well!!
