Haggis - A 100 Word Story
February 08, 2010 flash fictionYes, it's time for a 100 word story. This one, again part of the Weekly Challenge, was based around the topic "haggis". You can listen (and vote) here. The background sounds (or music, if you like the pipes) is from the freesound project. Specifically, this sample and this one. You can listen to my story using the player below, or if that's borked (like in some feed readers), download it here.
"Welcome to Haggis Anonymous. My name's Bob."
"Hi, Bob," the crowd said.
"It started with bridies and a utilikilt," Bob said. "Just a little something at the Renfair. Then I tried blood pudding - and liked it."
Murmurs of sympathy came from the seated members.
"Before long, I wore tartan and piped bagpipe music into my office." Bob paused. "I'm a dentist."
The others contemplated the combined horror.
"Then I ate haggis. Every meal. Snacks, even," Bob said. "I went clean one year ago."
"How?" the new kid asked.
Bob smiled. "Eating the closest thing to haggis that isn't. Hotdogs."
