I'm back in the 100 Word Stories Weekly Challenge

The 100 Word Stories Weekly Challenge is now old enough that I can go out and get drunk with it, since the 21st edition is out today.

After a loooooooooooong haitus (and being begged by Laurence in an email), I wrote a 100-word story about this week's theme, Time Travel.

Listen to it at the first link above and vote for me.

Oh? You don't wanna listen??? I could understand since it's 27 minutes long, so I'll go ahead and post my story's text.

It's 2021 and the Weekly Challenge podcast now runs three hours long.

In the boardroom for a major accounting firm, they're discussing what
to do about this "pest" that's killing productivity in their offices.

"We could block the server so people can't access it from here"

"Are you nuts? They'd revolt."

"How about we fire people who are caught listening to it at work?"

"We'd lose everybody"

"We could ask time-traveler Steve to prevent the challenge from ever starting."

"I'll ask him in a couple hours. He's listening to it right now"

Luckily for us, he didn't accept the mission.

Now go vote for me ;)
