Wednesday Story Day – AKA Hump Day #JusJoJan

college meme2


Wednesday story day again here and One-Liner Wednesday in some other places. Last time we witnessed Ben fall completely apart by acquiescing to the wishes of Alexis to prevent her from leaving him. We also got a little foreshadowing of the danger when Alexis’ father suggested to Ben that he run away. Of course, Ben did not take the hint and is now under Mrs. Wolfe’s and Alexis’ thumb. We need to go back and see if there is any redeeming value in this relationship. Don’t forget a clothes pin for your nose. It might come in handy.

“So Ben tell me all about your ability to make four separate detonation devices that will work.”
“Mrs. Worthe, I have already told you I have everything ready. All we need is the C4.”
“And you can make them set the charge off remotely?”
“Yes of course.”
“Very well. I will get you the C4. I think it should be put in place as soon as possible. These college students will be coming back mid-month. I think it will be easier to get the explosives in place while there are not so many witnesses.”
“With all the kids back I think it will be easier to deploy the devices.”
“How so Ben?”
“If there are more students Alexis and I won’t be noticed going into the student union. Also, the security camera videos will be harder to single Alexis and I out once the shit hits the fan. Yes, we will be in disguise, but if we are the only two students walking into the union, it won’t be though tracking us down.”
“Okay, you make a good point. Let’s shoot for the sixteenth. All the kids will be back and the union will be packed since it is a Saturday night. They still serve beer there right?”
“Yes, ma’am they do. It will be perfect.”
“Okay, this gives us about a week to make sure everything is ready. We will send our ransom demand on the following Monday.”
“Ooh, Mom. That’s perfect since that is the first day of classes and the whole campus will be filled.”
“Thank you, Alexis dear. Your mom still has a brain. Now Ben get me the schematics for the bombs. I want to look at them.”
“They are here in my backpack. I’ll pull them out.”
“Good boy.”
“Alright, Mrs. Wolfe do not move a muscle.”
“Ben what do you think you are going to do with that gun?”

This post is part of JusJoJan and if you would like to play go to the rules post.



  1. You know I couldn’t resist stopping to read this, John. Oooh what a twist. Ben is keeping things interesting. Mega hugs!

    1. Thanks for the stop. Off to work.(boo)

  2. I’m hoping he does it, but I sense it won’t go the way I wish. As for the meme at the top, I remember a professor used email to tell us classes were cancelled. Since we didn’t have Internet-accessing phones those days, a lot of people never got the message. Oops.

    1. I’m from the old school where after slugging through 12 inches of new snow and sitting for the required 15 minutes some teaching grad student would wander in and declare the class dismissed. Was usually an eight o’clock.

      1. Ah, the 15-minute rule. Love that tradition. Though I’ve learned it doesn’t carry over into the working world. 🙂

      2. Yes. You wait for the boss forever.

  3. I’m just waiting to see the look on Ben’s face when he finds out Mrs W is one step ahead and a flag with “BANG” on it pops out of the barrel.

  4. Hum…I don’t trust any of them. As for the meme, it’s perfect!

  5. You definitely put Hump Day over the top, John.
    Thank you.

    1. Thanks again. Hook.

  6. Go Ben! I’m liking this twist John.

    1. I thought of you when I wrote it. Thanks

  7. Another twist. Does Ben have it in him?

  8. These two are just up to no good.

    1. I would say you are right.

  9. You’ve done it again. Every time I think I’m getting a handle on what’s happening, it all changes! We’ll find out next that he’s going to shoot the FBI agent looking through the window behind Mrs W, I’ll be bound.

    1. Ha!!! Good one. 😀

    2. Okay. Now you are forcing me to really think about this.

      1. One of the benefits of leaving it on a cliff-hanger is that it gives you a week to think what happens next. Of course, I’m not admitting I would ever employ such a tactic.

      2. I wear the same tee-shirt!

  10. Great twist, Ben, I mean, John. 🙂

    1. Thanks Andra. LOL

  11. Oooh, dropped in the middle of a terror plot it seems!

    1. Yes, now put up your hands.

      1. Ahhhh!!! I give up! 😉

      2. Good. We don’t want anyone hurt.
