Wednesday – Story Day – AKA – Hump Day

Funny college 3


Wednesday story time again. Last week we left Mrs. Worthe, Alexis, Ben. And Alexis’ holding their breath as Mrs. Worthe pointed out some of her husband’s weakness for wine, women, and song. The slanderous comment was in an attempt to let Alexis know how badly her father had run the explosive business. So now with our eyes shielded and our barf bags at the ready we need to go to see what Mr. Worthe has to say.

“You know darling I can always count on you to bring up some unpleasantness that was already fully vetted in the past.”

“Fully vetted? You must be kidding me. You are still running around with that little chippie who is the age of Alexis.”

“You have no proof. Besides I haven’t seen her for over a year, and you know it.”

“Who’s the chippie?”

“Shut up Ben. This is between my husband and me.”

“Yet you choose to have an audience, my dear.”

“Don’t my dear me you old goat. I am still very angry at you.”

“Mom, dad. Can we please get back to the reason Ben and I are here. We need some C4.”

“C4 shmee four. I am not going to give you a book of matches let alone C4.”

“Mom, you’re being hateful. Why not?”

“I already told you. Between you and your boy toy, you don’t have enough sense to come out of the rain let alone start blowing up the city with C4.”

“We know what we are doing.”

“Yeah sure. Okay, let me ask. Why do you want to blow up the Student Union?”

“To make a point about how we students have been treated.”

“Stupid reason.”

“Thanks, mom.”

“Why don’t you get a little more creative?”

“What do you mean?”

“Well, how about a letter to the university president asking for…um…let’s say four million dollars, or you will blow up the student union. I would think you could plant the C4 in such a way that with a complex remote detonation system you could pull it off and maybe not hurt yourself.”


  1. So… Let’s make it Worthe our while, eh?

  2. So she’s just greedy. And rather stupid if she thinks that would work.

    1. We will have to see. I think she is serious.

      1. That’s even scarier.

  3. Mean, obnoxious and greedy. I think the jury has enough information John. But then, I’m not sure I trust the ring master in this little circus.

    1. Ha ha ha. I love your comments Dan. Thanks.

  4. It you’re going to make the effort, might as well make a buck.

    1. Seems that’s what she is saying.

  5. Yikes! Mama sounds like she means business! Who’d’a thought?!!

    1. Yeah. I knew she had it in her.

  6. *laughs* She has a point.

  7. LOL. Oh goodness… I’m hoping that “C4” in the universe of this story really stands for “Catalyst Creative Contagion of Caring” and they, however accidentally bring about world peace. 😀
    You’re a true master of dialogue, John. Onward to the office now. Mega hugs!

    1. Thanks for the comments. Good to hear from you. 🙂 Go to work now. 😦
