I like stories that make me laugh or think. A story that does both has the best chance for gold, but every story in this contest wins something.
This is a chance to earn your first trophy. If you have no trophies on your profile when I read your story, you qualify. Take a shot at it. Write it on a document file and copy and paste when you're done. If the contest fills, you'll still have a new write for other contests.
No trophies on your profile, make me laugh and/or think, and 1,000 words or less.
Andy Stephenson has run 116 contests since joining in 2005.
