What can YOU say in six sentences?
It first happened late one night when I got off the subway to confronted by a knife wielding mugger with crazy eyes and crooked teeth, I thought of a ‘crushed heart’ and he went down like a sack of potatoes falling off a truck, not understanding what had happened and not really wanting to get involved I walked on and didn’t look back.
I pondered this for a few days and had just about put it down to coincidence when walking home one night my path was blocked by two scruffy individuals with small cheap and nasty looking handguns that no doubt could make holes in me (yes, I do live in a rough neighbourhood) and I thought ‘two brains peeled like an orange’ and both dropped limply to the ground, I felt like I had scored a strike at the bowling alley.
I needed to test this new ability and when I couple of days later I honked my horn at three hot girls in a red Mustang all I got in return were three raised fingers so I thought ‘car in the centre of the Sun’ and their vehicle disappeared with a loud satisfying pop, I drove on ... smiling.
There were four people at work between me and a good promotion, four assholes in my way, so sitting in a bar one night I thought about them ‘on the surface of the moon’ and none of them turned up at the office next day, or any other day for that matter.
I needed to know my limitations, could I do five and since I couldn’t think of five people I wanted to disappear that much I decided to choose them at random, it was nothing personal you understand, it’s just that I’m now the most efficient serial killer in the world who needs to experiment so I when I saw five cops standing outside the station (hell, nobody likes cops) I thought them ‘at the bottom of the Marianas Trench’ and they flickered out of existence.
Should I try for six .... hell why not go the whole hog and try for six billion ?
