Stranger than Fiction, by Emma Baird

Och – I have no inspiration this week, yet my conscience won’t let me skip the Friday flash fiction thing.
Well, what about the news? Surely some politician has behaved badly, dishonestly or revealed their incredible stupidity? Some satire perhaps?
As it happens, I was going to work up some kind of tax/death thing along the lines of “nothing as certain as” and then show wealthy, privileged people dodging their taxes and mastering the art of freezing their bodies when they die.
Satire’s a bit too predictable though.
True, and it wouldn’t seem credible – the truth always being stranger than fiction.
