The Shortest Story I Have Ever Written

by good2begone

There was a gremlin in my head poking my skull from behind my eyes with a really small ice pick… least that is what the ache in my head felt like. It had been there for days. Coincidentally, I couldn’t find my glasses. I needed them to see. Without them I had to squint and stretch my eyes to be able to focus. Even then images were unclear.

At first, I tried to find the glasses. As the days went on, I just learned to be without them and went on with my daily life.

Then out of nowhere it hit me. I took them off and put them in the inside pocket of my winter jacket after I got off work.

I went to the closet and reached into the pocket.


There they are. I unfolded them and placed them on my face across the bridge of my nose.

Clarity had returned. Amazingly enough my headache went away as well.

Then I looked around and said,

“Wait a minute….whose house is this?”
