  1. How indeed, Terveen. I am sure there are still some people out there trying to work out the conundrum. Perception (or misperception, in this case) is a strange thing. A tasty and excellent read for a Tuesday.

    • Haha. Thank you so much, Davy. Perception is the key to practically everything. Hope you’re have a great weekend. 🙂

  2. every line of this delightfully imagined tale is wonderful; worth reading over and over for the delicious phrases and the lovingly caricatured protagonists; this one goes to the tip of my list!! what a hoot 🙂

  3. I think they will have an upset stomach for a long time if they do finally decide to do what the story indicates. 🙂 Interesting and humorous chain of thoughts this man has as he walks towards what could be his last walk in the woods!!!

  4. Another classic Terveen Gill offering! I love this guy’s cluelessness, which puts him in the running for a Darwin Award. Fun stuff from a brilliant writer. Thanks, Terveen! 🙂

    • That’s hilarious, Mike! He definitely deserves to win. Thanks so much, Mike. Always appreciate your support and encouragement. 🙂

  5. Wow! It is quite an engaging short story, Terveen! You are a queen of this format!✨👍

  6. Wow, she’s going to be cooked in a soup. Oh, that is so terrifying. You always end the story at the most crucial time. 😂
