One is Enough

I awoke to a skittering across my back. After jumping around and swatting at my back, I noticed the strange quality of my cat’s insistent meow. She had caught something and was proud of it. I just knew it. I tore apart the room to find it and sure enough, there was a mouse cowering […]

MOMO

In Missouri, we have a sasquatch creature, Momo, the Missouri Monster. There was a guy I used to work with, a real old guy. He used to live out by Mark Twain National Forest. He was always telling us stories about seeing Bigfoot. He was real serious about it. He had plaster casts of their […]

Who’s the Dummy?

I came home one day to an empty house. I walked into my room, set something on my desk, then I saw it out of the corner of my eye. I spun around and walked right back out of my room. I was sure my sister had done it. Positive she did. But that didn’t […]
