Till The Money Runs Out
by Miles H. Rost
“This is moronic.”
Paul Daniels wouldn’t stop grumbling, and his co-worker Jake Byers had enough.
“Look, Paul. To continue doing what we do, we need money. They are paying us $5,000 each to set up all these eggs in the lake.”
“But it’s stupid. Why does anyone need to have a gender reveal party?”
Jake stood up and scowled.
“Hey, at least they’re not firing off colored explosives in dry grassland like that family did down in Yucaipa last year.”
Paul couldn’t fight that point.
“At least we’ll get to rest after this.”
“Only till the money runs out.”
I know Paul! (I avoid him)
Bear said it… Good one.
Surviving in a gig economy keeps things from getting boring, I would imagine…
I’m no fan of gender reveal parties, but I’d probably take $5000 to set one up! I enjoyed your story and the characters’ attitudes.
I know I read this before, but had to come back to like, comment and listen to the song. As for the story, hopefully gender reveal parties will disappear as a thing soon. Great story though. 🙂
This is a great take. Perfect for the colours.
Damn thats an extravagant gender reveal party! Good one!
Wow, what a big gender reveal party! That’s a new thing for me being an “old” person not living in the US any longer. Very creative and imaginative story!
Yes. I saw a gender reveal party in this picture too. (Yeah…they’re silly.) lol
I’m glad I had my babies well before the whole gender-reveal thing became a “thing.”
