Hurt Squirrels
The Answering Machine (A 100 word story)
6/18/2001 8:49 AM
"Hi! I can't come to the phone right now, because I'm trapped under a large, heavy object. If you leave your name and number and the time you called, I'll get back to you as soon as I free myself." The answering machine clicked and Anna could hear her mom over the speaker.

"Hi honey, it's me. Give me a call when you get home." As the phone clicked off, Anna squirmed under the refrigerator, her left leg crushed and twisted by its bulk.

She pushed the hulking appliance to no avail, thinking, "God, I'll be returning calls all day."
