The Longest Day

Beep! Beeep! Beeeeep!
"Here we go again<" he mumbles, as he reaches for the snooze button. Dang it. He had forgotten, last Mom had moved the clock. But where?
Under the bed! Just as he stretched in his bed his brother, ever chipper, popped his head through the door. "Whats up bro. You ready for school?"
"Oh yeah," he said with as much sarcasm as possible at 6:02 in the morning. Realizing if he didn't get up soon his brother would take the shower, and he'd never get it then,he slithered out of bed. Thank god. Someone remembered to put a towel out last night. Maybe today wouldn't be so bad after all.
Showered, dressed, and semi-consious he appeared in the kitchen. Typically he have to spend 3 minutes searching for a quick meal, but atleast for today he didn't. For there in the corner was a half-empty box of ceral. He grabbed down a bowl and began to pour.
Nothing. Not a piece left. That would explain why it was left lying aroud. So typical...

PS. Please comment. I'm trying to write one installment a week and i could use some ideas.

New Guy in Town

Hi. I am the newbie contributing to this blog. My code-name is Magellan. I could tell you more, but then I'd have to kill you. Nothing personal. Okay, that part about killing wasn't entirely serious. On the topic of killing, could you, intrepid reader, bring yourself to kill a person. It doesn't matter what he or she did to deserve the fate. But however much the fate is deserved, could you bring yourself to kill them? Some of you will think that it'd be pretty cool to pull the trigger. Others think despicable to even contemplate it. In truth, I don't think that anyone reading this could ever make the decision of whether or not they'd kill somebody, if they would pull the trigger, while sitting comfortable in front of a computer reading a blog. No, you would have to decide in the heat of the moment. And I think that there are a lot of people who say that they would now, but come face-to-face with the decision and wouldn't be able to do it. And that is never a sign of weakness. That is a sign of compassion, something that isn't found enough in this world.

Wow, that was dark and creepy and a little pessimistic there at the end too. I read a quote somewhere (under the rainbow, no less) that went like this, "Borrow money from pessimists; they don't expect it back." There also a little picture of a monk and some lady holding a ton of cash. I have no idea what the picture was all about, but I do know one thing. I may be a little pessimistic, but I do expect to be paid back, with interest. Thank you.
Yours Unequivocly True,

Look up unequivocal in a dictionary. I promise that it's there. I may not have spelled it right, but the dictionary probably did.
