The Story of Harmless Bullet

Day 26 The Board of Eyes /absurdist comedy/ I never knew the darkness could vibrate – through the waves of macabre curse dancing on its own – wrestling with the mindset of ordinary individuals like me while re-modeling my truly pessimistic reality. No doubt, a combination of increasing wealth, foreign stimulation, and political instability throughout the Warrior Farm allowed that darkness to flourish. I felt how the air sang and...

Day 24 Alphonso Beard or How to Become a Leader  Someone shook my hand – calmly and methodically – as if testing my reaction to the surrounding reality, which was so indescribably sad in the previous days that, finally, I was ready to surrender and accept the tragic fate that foreshadowed my “miserable” future in the Warrior Farm. I grabbed the arm of the new guest with my trembling hands. When...

Day 22 Evolution of Marriage /absurdist comedy/  Nothing is more terrifying than the sudden and unpredictable change, especially the loss of freedom. That’s why we are so frightened by marriage.  Everything around me went black for a moment. The pores all over my body – disturbed, spongy, sieve-like – gave a strange, long, quite loud noise when a six-foot rubber hose was taken out from the right sleeve of Ms....

‘…it was a very happy way to live’

Let’s talk about books today…😀 because the 6th of September is READ A BOOK DAY, and the 7th of September is a national BUY A BOOK DAY. I just finished reading the book of Agatha Christie, ‘Come, Tell Me How You Live,’ about her trips to Iraq and Syria with her second husband, archaeologist, Max Mallowan. Enduring discomfort from rats, bats, lice, weather, zero WC, baths, and without knowledge of...

Day 21 The Forest Lovers  /absurdist comedy/  I woke up on the grass in the woods, covered by a greasy napkin, a hundred bright yellow beetles with black markings, and the lifeless body of the naked Sherriff. I lay on my back and tried to breathe steadily. “What a mess! This is the result of your sexual ego, Bullet,” I said aloud, looking at the moonlight.  It is not that I object...

‘Blue’ Humor or Can a Sad Clown Tell a Joke?

– Do you hear the helicopter?  – No, it’s an angel…  – What? An angel? Then why does it make such a horrible noise?  – Gone crazy because of life on the Earth.  (Viktor Koklyushkin, Russian satirist) After reading my new, straight-from-the-oven story, called ‘Upside Down,’ one of my followers told me it was sad. It took me by surprise because I never perceived the events in the story to...

Day 20 The Gossips “That’s another thing I don’t understand,” my mother interrupted the livestream of my incoherent words, “Why you – of all people in Rsa – should save those poor sick souls in that desolate wild land? You aren’t a doctor!” For a second, I stopped my confused revelation and asked myself, “Really, how did it happen? Why am I here? What was the reason in the first...

Day 19 Some Peculiar Ways of Love /absurdist comedy/   ‘Love is the best medicine’ – who would disagree with this famous statement? Nothing changes our moods, effectively reduces stress, bolsters the ego, relieves backache, or lifts our self-esteem better than a good ol’ love. After hours of indescribable pleasure, where each breath obeyed to my rhythm and tempo, I crawled to the couch near the window, frightened that I’d have...
