SPIRALIZE ME

I stare at my sleek, new veggie spiralizer with disdain. It’s a simple contraption– dual funnels attached at the narrow ends, with severely sharp blades tucked inside, promising to turn any vegetable into long strings of gluten-free goodness. But I don’t care how much meat sauce I dump on it, there’s no way zucchini noodles will satisfy me like hearty durum wheat spaghetti.

Effin’ Paleo diet.

Flash Fiction Frenzy!

This month: an explosion of flash in three outstanding stories: Ten Steps to a Successful Apocalypse, The Boot Collector, and Bon Manje. Each can be read in a coffee break and each will deliver a lot more buzz. Enjoy!
~~~~~~
Ten Steps to a Successful Apocalypse

· Make a cup of chamomile tea. Mix in a bit of honey. Drink it, slowly. The apocalypse will involve a great deal of screaming. Best to begin with a well-soothed throat.

· Say your farewells. For family, this should be done in person if time permits. For co-workers, a text message will suffice.

· If you own fish, do not say farewell to them. This is all their goddamn fault, after all.
