The Scariest Thing in My World

Trick or Trick It’s Halloween, and you just ran out of candy. If the neighborhood kids (or anyone else, really) were to truly scare you, what trick would they have to subject you to? To really scare me? I think they have to tie me to a chair, hold my eyes open Clockwork Orange style … Continue reading The Scariest Thing in My World

House Doubles

Doppelgänger Alert You step into an acquaintance’s house for the first time, and discover that everything — from the furniture, to the books, to the art on the wall — is identical to your home. What happens next? I stopped there blinking in disbelief, my mouth a jar like that of a slack jawed yokel … Continue reading House Doubles

Calling Mr Moffat…

Showing off my fan boy credentials here. Interesting starting point, though as a threat it’d need to be refined.


Local Color

Imagine we lived in a world that’s all of a sudden devoid of color, but where you’re given the option to have just one object keep its original hue. Which object (and which color) would that be?

Fourth Wall

You get to spend a day inside your favourite movie. Tell us which one it is — and what happens to you while you’re there.

I hate being the caretaker for Charles. How am I supposed to keep this house up to scratch if he hasn’t evening finished building the damn thing? Look at him sitting up there on his own, miserable sod. I don’t think I’ve ever seen him entertain anyone, least not since his wife left him. Here is living in a half built giant house he is all alone in. I thought hermits were supposed to live in small remote places, not some ridicules over the top stately pleasure dome. Who does he think he is? Mighty Khubla Khan? Well, I guess he goes have three of the same letters in his surname.

Oh well, I better get on with sorting the junk of his…

Big Finish

Grand Slam The World Series starts tonight! In your own life, what would be the equivalent of a walk-off home run? (For the baseball-averse, that’s a last-minute, back-against-the-wall play that guarantees a dramatic victory.) Turning the tables in a bleak or seemingly insolvable situation, basically my Grand Slam moment when I have my Sherlock Holmes/Columbo … Continue reading Big Finish
