Adventure/Comedy : Under 100 words

We must escape.

But how? I think it’s our fate to be trodden by him.

And live in these stinking holes?

Least he could do is to let us bath every day. We are nothing but disposable slaves for him.

Bath, you say! I think that is the only time we can escape. The time when we are pushed from washing chambers

I am scared. errrrr, it’s not so bad here.

Ok. You stay here. I won’t!

A few days later

“Honey! Have you seen my other blue sock? I can find just half the pair.”

Ashley March 2, 2010 at 11:14 PM

Hi Chhaya,
Welcome back on your blog!
Now I know why some of my "half the pairs" go missing.
I like the choice of fonts.

Tan March 3, 2010 at 9:30 AM  

Hi Chhaya,

Nice to see you back after a long time. This is a nice one... Your imagination is running wild, I guess :-)

Chhaya March 3, 2010 at 10:55 AM  

@Ashlon : thank u.. it makes me happy too! :)

@Yvonne: i m so glad u liked it :)

Chhaya March 3, 2010 at 10:57 AM  

@Ashley : heheheh. even i m sick of mising socks after every laundry day :D

Chhaya March 3, 2010 at 10:58 AM  

@Brian : thank u :)

@RAJ : i missed these moments of pure joy after posting something new... :)

Chhaya March 3, 2010 at 10:59 AM  

@TAN : i had actually written something on Betrayal.. but i felt i have beenw riting too dark these days.. so this is to change the taste a bit :)

Chhaya March 3, 2010 at 12:18 PM  

@vicious : thank u. i m kinda amused that u found it predictible.. an under 100 word thing? i thought these things get finished before normal ppl like me can even start wondering about the plot .. hehehhe.. :)

Whats In A Name March 3, 2010 at 12:23 PM  

My socks hate me !!!! I sweat so much !!! :-P

Karthik March 3, 2010 at 1:20 PM  

Ha ha!! Stinking sock escapes! :D
I wonder, in stead of escaping, why didn't they wash themselves? The owner would've been so happy - like me. :P
Very well executed. :)

jonna March 3, 2010 at 6:47 PM  

lol..that was really a nice one..the ending is surprising..

itsyvitsy March 3, 2010 at 6:55 PM  

First of all, welcome back to blogging. :-) This blog really needed to be revived (may be that is too much ;-)). But the return to blogging with a hilarious post is most pleasant. I had a hearty laugh. The hints are there to see but I was left scratching my head wondering what is she trying to say or where is this leading (of course, with a short-short one doesn't have to wait long). Hints such as, trodden by him, stinking holes, disposable slaves. Mastering the genres, are we? :-D

Eon Heath March 3, 2010 at 10:22 PM  

like everyone, welcome back...

dont know what to say, something "funny" coming from YOU!! liked it...nice 'cute' one...

A friend...

chér March 3, 2010 at 11:53 PM  

lol... i was wondering(i am not so bright :P) what it was all about until i reached the end.A refreshing change from your regular pieces of writing :)

although i am a newbie here i was eagerly waiting for update :)

Tongue Trip March 4, 2010 at 12:37 AM  

a bright pair going yak yak like in a pop up story book. naturally the other half was spared too.
Glad at your return.
about having enjoyed my photographs and wanting to use them for writing stories, by all means, do. Pen-etrate.

vidya March 4, 2010 at 5:32 AM  

hehe..nice one Chhaya. Out of curiosity, I could not keep myself from glimpsing at the pic before reading:) You sure are excelling in all genres of writing!

Chhaya March 4, 2010 at 11:26 AM  

@WhatsInAName : hehe.. most guys do :P

@Karthik : LOL... i guess if they cud wash themselves, they wud never stay around even for a few days :P

Chhaya March 4, 2010 at 11:34 AM  

@Vittal : comedy is the toughest genre for me.. i m most comfortable with writing Dark and disturbing... Comedy is just the opposite and hence, a big challenge. i m so glad u guys liked it :)

Chhaya March 4, 2010 at 11:37 AM  

@The-Silhouette : i know that u know how tough it was for me :)

glad to hear from u... btw, that song u sent was nice too

Chhaya March 4, 2010 at 12:17 PM

John March 5, 2010 at 11:14 PM  

I enjoyed the twist you had at the end! Indeed, the shower is the only time we get to be ourselves, to be imaginative and have personal space to think.

MADHU RAO | (INDImag.COM) March 6, 2010 at 11:46 AM  

The stinky missing sock ! Someone had a patent to cure the post laundry missing sock syndrome (3 sock packs instead of pairs) on America's Best Inventors series ; he did not get the 1 million :-)

Hey, read you like short stories. Here's something that may interest you ..

We have a story writing contest and would love to see you participate. Below are the details :

INDImag’s Katha Sagar Contest. USD $150/- in Prizes

Stories have a way of connecting people and touching their hearts. Like a good cup of coffee, a thriller can stimulates one’s senses and linger on far after enjoying it, while at the diametric opposite end of the spectrum, a story that your grandmother narrated to you as a kid, soothed you to sleep and filled you with sweet dreams.

Stories, like clay, provide an endless medium of possibilities limited only by the author’s imagination. We want to unleash a sea of these stories. Hence Katha Sagar..

chér March 6, 2010 at 9:05 PM  


the sole purpose of my creating that account was to be able to comment on blog u may never see any post there.

completely enjoy reading your writing pieces :)

IdleMind March 7, 2010 at 3:10 PM  

The moment I completed reading this, I looked at my fresh pair of dark blue ones. Just to ensure that they are not complaining.

Comedy is wonderful, and with some adventure to go with it ... it's yummy!! :)

Chhaya March 8, 2010 at 8:05 PM  

@Navi : me too :D

@aBanerji : damn socks :D

Chhaya March 8, 2010 at 8:07 PM

Chhaya March 8, 2010 at 8:08 PM

Chhaya March 8, 2010 at 8:09 PM
