8thdayfiction

…and on the 8th day, micro fiction was published on some dude's blog.

Thoughts

Janice rolled onto her side.

“What’re you thinking?”

“I was thinking that the song “Neutron Dance” probably should have been called “Free Neutron Dance” because regular neutrons are generally pretty stable whereas free neutrons are the ones that cause reactions and therefore would more appropriately be associated with an activity like dancing”, Steven said, staring at the ceiling. “Why–what’re you thinking?”

“Oh, um…nothing. Good night.”

“Oh, OK. Good night.”

Janice turned onto her other side, reached up and clicked off her bedside lamp, and pretended to sleep.

She was hoping they’d be able to talk, but it was useless trying to have a conversation with Steven when he was distracted thinking about either The Pointer Sisters or nuclear physics.

And if he was thinking about both at the same time? FORGET IT.
