Sprinkle some magic powder on the black cat. No. Stretch and stretch, and stretch some more. Grab the shiny star and place it next to the jar. The cat will look, the star will stretch and the jar will smile a sparkly smile. No. The next time you reach for that magic powder, think that it is safer not to reach for a lighter. A lighter? Where did that come from? The cat will stretch. The jar will sparkle. The star will shine. Yes. That's it. Everything is back in place. Neatly. Yawn. I prefer to see the jar smiling.

At the top of the mountain, all we could hear was the fire, burning the logs. And we waited. For a sign. One day and another. Time went by. No sign. Our children waited and their children. And when there was no hope left, I stood up.
“I've been here since the beginning. I'm tired. I'm leaving.”
Everyone protested.
I raised my hand. Silence.
“We have burned everything around here. Look! It's ridiculous. Enough is enough. We don't even have a twig to burn, a twig.”
Someone at the back whispered “What was the sign all about again? I forgot.”

The impressive statue filled the room of the museum. It held an ax and a noose, and also a plate of fruit.
Strange combination, he thought.
“Whatever you do, don't touch it,” said the security guard, walking away.
He touched the plate, of course. Nothing happened. The noose. Nothing. The ax. Still nothing.
He shrugged.
Suddenly, something hit him. He got snatched back by the neck and was gone when his back got slashed.
Before the cameras, the director promised he would find the culprits.
The security guard hid the noose and the ax away, and calmly enjoyed his apple.

Pick Me and My Headache


The entrance to the ship was locked because the entrance ramp got stuck.
"We're in the 25th century, the most modern, developed world anyone has ever experienced, and the ramp is stuck," he mumbled.
He tried everything to fix it.
He was so focused, the speakers startled him when they roared "Time Travel Tomorrow."
"Right, but the ramp is stuck... Stuck."
"We're looking for volunteers."
"Stuck. But... OK, pick me!"
The command center received his telepathic message.

The next day, he was in the 21st century.
He landed right in the middle of the famous 2020 pandemic.
Everything was... stuck.
