Live to Eat

Andre lived by the dictum, “Live to Eat“ as opposed to, “Eat to Live.”

To him, everything was fair game including bugs, frogs, rats, bats, cats, dogs, reptiles, and monkeys, as long as they could be boiled, fried or broiled.

It wasn’t surprising that wherever he traveled, Andre always visited the local wet market to see what it had to offer. If that wasn’t enough to satisfy his bizarre appetite, he’d risk going to more exotic places even where the cannibals lived.

Sadly, it was during one of those forays that Andre never returned and ended up being food himself.

The tree stood like a giant sentinel at the end of the Garden of Eden.

“Let’s see what’s out there,” the ever curious Eve told Adam.

“I’d rather not,” he replied. “Didn’t the Lord say we should stay put in the garden?”

But Eve couldn’t be denied. She had always been a force of nature with an unstoppable mindset.

When Eve walked past the tree, Adam wasn’t man enough to stop her and had to follow suit.

This escapade and other minor transgressions that followed led to the eating of the forbidden fruit that banished them from the garden forever.

Landon found himself alone on the beach on a bitter cold and wintry day.

For a moment, he watched the darkening skies and powerful waves crashing and spewing water into the cliffs.

Then he walked down the shore and thought about the status of his marriage.

When he lost his job, his wife became domineering and controlling. But now that he was earning good money again, he felt it was time to assert himself and get his voice heard.

Suddenly, his smartphone rang requiring immediate attention. It was the commander-in-chief.

“Don’t forget to take pizza home for dinner.”

“Yes, dear.”

A Moment of Terror

It was early evening. Elaine went downstairs from their apartment to pick up the mail.

As she was opening the mailbox, she felt somebody breathing down the back of her neck.

It was a moment of terror when pepper spray would come handy, but unfortunately she didn’t have it with her.

What would she do now?

Paralyzed with fear, she slowly turned around and saw her husband Kyle sporting a silly grin.

“Don’t ever sneak up behind me again!” she exclaimed in disgust.

“Sorry, hon, I didn’t mean to scare you.”

“Yeah, right!”

That night, Kyle slept on the couch.
