Wednesday Story Day – AKA Hump Day

Funny College

Wednesday Story Day Again. Last week we left Ben saying a quick hello to Alexis as she was running to her room to pack. It looks like Trudy has put Ben’s plan to get rid of her husband and Alexis into action. If it works, Trudy and Ben will be alone, and you and I will be forced to see sights that we will regret. Let’s hope something else happens to prevent what could be a life scarring moment. Here take this blindfold and don’t take it off until I tell you. There may be sights too horrible for your tender eyes. (Wait! You are a writer, right? Aw, you can take it unless your name’s Dan. If so put it on.)
“Hello, Ben. I’m so glad you are out of that bed.”
“Hi, Trudy. What did you have to show me here in the kitchen.”
“It is not really in the kitchen. It’s in the garage.”
“The garage? What are you trying to pull now?”
“Nothing Ben dear. I have picked out a special gift for you.”
“Excuse me. When you pick out a gift, there must be a reason.”
“Ben dear. I have started your plan to have my husband and Alexis out-of-the-way for a while. At least you could recognize that I’m trying.”
“Aw, I’m sorry. I think that was rather rude of me to imply you had some agenda, and the gift was not from the heart.”
“It is from the heart. You’ll see. You can go into the garage and take a look. I need to give my husband some last-minute instructions. He and Alexis are going on a trip to the Cayman’s as you suggested.”
“Wow. I’m really surprised.”
“I don’t see why. I’m crazy about you. Now just pop in there and I’ll be right back. A taxi should be here shortly. Then you and I can get down to some serious relationship building.”
“Yes, we can. Okay, see you in a bit. Is the gift wrapped?”
“Well, it is pretty hard to cover. You’ll see what I mean.”
“I’m excited.”
“Me too dear. Bye now.”


  1. All right, John. I see what you’re up to. You’re building tension by drawing this out and leaving a cliffhanger ending. Sly move. We’ll be back next Wednesday to see what’s happening. 🙂 — Suzanne

    1. Thanks Suzanne. As you can see I deviously leave a cliff hanger each week. This one is coming to an end though. 🙂

  2. Oh no! Do I smell a rat, or is it just CO?
    You’re right, I don’t trust that woman any farther than I could throw her with both hands tied behind my back and my feet encased in concrete.

    1. Interesting you should smell CO which has no odor. I think it is petrol you smell.

      1. Sorry, I was a bit exhausted at the time.

    1. Thanks for the reblog

  3. I keep thinking that this won’t end well.

    1. You remind me of the Greek chorus foretelling the danger. I like it. 🙂

      1. That or a pessimistic Jewish parent. 😛

  4. I can go sans blindfold if you can. Wait, you should know where this is going, unless Trudy’s in charge of that now, too. Thanks for leaving me in a mild panic for a week, John.

    1. How do you think I feel. I know what’s going to happen and I am very afraid.

      1. Now you’re really scaring me, John. Can’t we just have a change of plan and off that woman?

      2. Gotta hire someone to do it. I can’t.

      3. What’s John Cannon up to these days. I mean, surely he must know someone who could take care of this. After all you’ve done for him???

      4. Good idea. I’ll ask him.

  5. Arghh! Another week long wait.

    1. Heh, heh, heh. Yes my good man another long wait.

      1. That cracked me up. Thanks.

  6. Oh my goodness, John! Where in the heck are you taking these two? I have a sneaking feeling that even you don’t know. 🙂 Look forward to story Wednesdays every week just to see where you are taking them. Of course, we are led to believe that there is a shiny new car in the garage for Ben, but I heartily doubt it. 🙂

    1. Can’t you smell the petrol?

  7. “Dear.” I don’t trust her one bit.

    1. The old patronizing “dear.” I agree with you. 🙂

  8. Another suspenseful episode, good sir. I’d rather not have a blindfold, though!

    1. Ha haha. Okay, you have been warned.

  9. I think Ben needs a talking to

    1. He has needed a talking to for quite some time. 😀

      1. *sigh* Okay, let’s move in. *hands John black sunglasses*

      2. Ha ha ha. 🙂 Watch that memory thing.

      3. Yeah, no memory wipes.

      4. Look here. *pop*

  10. A car? A trap? A video retrospective on a giant garage screen of 50 Shades of Trudy/Ben moments? I can’t imagine where you’re going.
    Great set-up, John. Have a wicked Wednesday! Mega hugs.

    1. Thank you, Teagan. I love to keep the future fuzzy. Wishing you a Wonderful Wednesday. A hug too! 🙂

  11. I think Ben is the dimmest character ever created (in a good way, obviously) and if Mrs W was any more transparent, she’d be a window.
    I’m still watching it in shoulder pads, too.

    1. LOL. Thank you Dale. You made my day. 😀

  12. So, Trudy is getting Ben a car, right?? That means he can get out of this unscathed!!

    1. Heh, heh, heh. You innocent child you. (term of endearment) 🙂

      1. Just trying to look on the bright side. Poor Ben. Seems his goose is cooked!
