For Friday Fictioneers 100-Word Challenge: 1 April 2016

Note: Ever wonder what happens inside those office buildings? It’s not always work, work, work. This is as close to a true story as it gets. <blush> <blush> Have fun reading anyway.

It’s just another day in the office.

A moment ago, our secretary stopped by and said I’d be under her spell soon.

I nearly fell off my chair laughing.

To prove it, she asked me to raise my right foot and rotate it in clock-wise motion.

Then she told me to draw the number 666 in the air with my right hand.

She said that my foot would change direction.

I’d be darned, she was right, and there was nothing I could do about it.

Next time she heads down to my cube, I’m running to the nearest fire exit.

    Yup, change direction all right … to the nearest exit. That was really a cool story, Plairidel. Nice and different.

        Ah yes, but maybe he could run away for a coffee break and she would get bored and leave?

    Hahah, too funny. That’s a nice trick, of course I tried it too, and it works. Reminds me of the game where you rub your chest clockwise and pat the top of your head at the same time. You start out tapping both, then are supposed to rub your chest–and see what happens with your other hand. πŸ˜€ Great story.

    Nice office story humor! What pesky brains we humans have – the trick is all in the circle of the number 6: the brain registers the movement and makes the other limbs follow suit. Same as the rub head, pat tummy or vice versa.

    No thanks. I’m not having anything to do with 666, other than just having typed it. That’s wild. Well written, Plaridel. —- Suzanne
