“Brunhilda! You’ve been nauseous all day! What’s wrong?”
“I’ve no idea, Reginald. I was feeling fine yesterday, but then … ”
“You know, I’ve heard a rumor.”
“Oh?”
“Yes. Have you recently written any Friday Flash Fiction?”
“Every week, of course.”
“Several years ago, a woman named Thalia found that those writers just made her spew.”
“Really? Wow. What should I do?”
“Maybe you should ease your way into writing more stories. Perhaps two a week?”
“But will that be safe? I’m sick enough already.”
“The main thread’s been quiet for months. Worth a shot.”
“Friday Flash Fiction–the cure-all for everything!”
