Maybe volcanoes are like the earth’s zits, and it just wishes we would pop them already.
What if zombies had super powers? I mean, they are scary enough as is, eating brains and everything. But now some of them can fly. Others have super laser vision. And worst of all, they can read your mind in addition to eating it. You’re welcome for the nightmares.
Question your Reality
I failed to come up with a question your reality for the twelfth story snacks. Or did I? When you read that first line, did the walls start crashing in on you? Did it make you question everything you have ever believed about Story Snacks? That’s what I thought. Mission accomplished.
You know what is the absolute worst? Getting a spider web on your face. Not only does it tickle, but it is also disgusting, and impossible to see, and you can still feel it while you thrash about like an idiot trying to get it off. And underneath it all is the terrifying possibility that the spider was hanging from it and is now crawling around on your neck somewhere. Nope. Hard pass.
Semblance of a Story
I scream in abject terror as she comes at me with the needle raised. I struggle against my restraints, crying out for help. Someone! Anyone! I’m going to die. I just know it. This is the end.
I feel a small prick on my arm as the needle goes in. It doesn’t hurt as much as I thought it would, but I’m sort of committed now. I scream all the more, furious at the needle for not hurting as much as I expected. The arms holding me loosen into a warm hug and I hear mom’s voice saying something I don’t understand. But then I hear something about ice cream, and decide maybe I might not die after all. In fact, it is looking like a pretty good day. Of course, I can’t stop crying yet. Integrity must be maintained, after all.

Dog Bear says, “When at the beach, wear lots of sunscreen. But don’t rub in the part on your nose. That way the sharks will see the war paint and know you aren’t kidding around.”
