a cure for the common block


Stupid time-out. Ricasha didn’t even understand why he was in trouble, how could he “learn his lesson” in time-out? All he could do was pick and peel at the wallpaper until it was over, however a piece a-bit-too-big just fell off and Ric’s brow furrowed at the thought of his inevitable extended sentence, then he noticed that it fell off so easily because the wallpaper was pasted to a disc of some kind. He felt the exposed wall, it was soft like paper with nothing behind it; he gave a slight push and his entire arm went through the wall and before he knew it he was falling into an expanding hole, falling out into a lush meadow at night. His bewilderment turned to wonder, which soon gave way to fear and confusion of not knowing where he was, how far he was from his home, or anyone who could help him for that matter. He never found his way home, and when his parents found the hole in the wall in the corner they let out a somber “Not again.”

    Delightful. Logical consequences are always better than time out anyway.
