("" EVOLVING OUT OF WHAT" is a story based on a little illustration done by Geoff Keong in a tiny booklet he put together for last night's "On the Topic of Food" fundraiser. A creative little evening that will go down in the history books of our hearts as a creative little evening that will go down in the history books of our heart.
Thanks for the inspiration Geoff.
Hope you enjoy today's story...)
EVOLVING OUT OF WHAT
He lived lonely on his planet of one, wondering how he had evolved into place.
Could he have evolved out of something similar to the table that he sat in front of, he asked himself for the millionth time. He had white legs just like the table. Perhaps it was a relation from eons ago.
He kicked the table and waited in silence as planets spun overhead through their solitary orbits.
He glanced over at his bed which was one of the other inhabitants of the tiny, barren planet. There were many similarities between the bed and the man. When he grew tired of asking himself questions, he would stretch out flat on the bed, making a mirror of its horizontal nature. Perhaps he was simply the more animated half of his cousin the bed ?
Suddenly the man sneezed a sneeze which morphed - spittle and all - into cheers of joy
"I sneezed !! I sneezed !!" he shouted and laughed into the silence of space over this break from the monotony of his day.
