Eric Alagan has a weekly micro-fiction challenge on his blog, Written Words Never Die. The prompt is a single word, this week’s word being “Gutter”. I decided to give it a go, and even tried emulating his signature style of presentation.
I’m convinced they do this, by the way. I will give an unspecified reward to anyone obtaining photographic evidence.

Your imagination is marvelous, David… I can see them now surfing the rapids, ready to leap at the last moment…! 😀

Have you ever read Empire of the Ants? Those guys are pretty hardcore. Which Thursday story do you mean? I thought I’d read them all, but maybe I missed it. Send me the link so I can make sure? 🙂
