In my little house under a willow tree, I brought my fresh cup of steaming coffee and cream back to the table, ready to write my tall tale. Sitting in my chair at the kitchen table/desk, was a gremlin-like creature. All snaggley teeth, spiky hair, monovalent blood-shot eyes, and long, raggedy taloned fingers.

Excuse me,” I harrumphed, at the usurpation of my spot.

“Just doing some tweaking,” the gruesome creature retorted, “Your lap top has been working far too well of late. “

Before I could respond, it hit “Enter” and with an evil laugh, disappeared into my hard drive.
