In Brief

For a change, a fun tag. The goal, inspired by this is to write a short story in 55 words or less. My definition of a short story is wider than yours, so here’s my, um… , effort.

A blogger dies and goes to heaven. A few weeks into his stay, he runs into Darwin. Talk tended to evolution, naturally.

He asks Darwin about the only evolution bloggers care about – how people evolve from Insignificant Microbes to Mortal Humans and beyond.

“Good content,” he replied.

“Is that all?”

“And Intelligent Design.”

Thanks Prash for the tag (and a neat story!) – I had so much fun doing this. Maybe I’ll do more…

Gayathri

Here are the people I’d like to tag:

Navin

Vidya

DoZ. Link to story.

Gayathri. Link to story.

Tilo. Link to outsourced stories 😉

Sybil. Link to story.

Swami. Link to story.

Update: Here’s another one.

It was love at first sight – vulnerable me and the irresistible sonofabitch. We went home together that night, getting along fabulously till my sister moved in. She started to like him.

This morning I wake up, and they’re both gone.

I’m calling the cops: no one takes my Labrador away from me.

  2. Love your “short story” abt evolution. I promise to respond – have a curious medical problem to investigate first – a swollen head, combined with performance anxiety…

  3. Ammani is the queen alright, only when you do one do you realize how hard it is. She seems to do it so effortlessly day after day after day.

  4. “how people evolve from Insignificant Microbes to Mortal Humans and beyond”
    “Lila” has got interesting things to say on this and much more……I think you might like that book…

  6. Oh ok. I’ll check it out sometime.

    If you click the links I had for Insignificant Microbes and Mortal Humans, they lead to the TTLB ecosystem – a way to track the “importance” of blogs.
