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


“OK…well, how about ‘PssssshhhhhPOP!’?”

“What? No. What is that even supposed to be?”

“It’s the sound of helium filling up a balloon until the balloon gets too full and it pops. What does it matter if you don’t like it anyway?”

“I was just curious.”

“Well now you know. So, what have you got?”

“I was thinking ‘VrooomSCREEEEE!’.”

Andrew furrowed his brow. “So, is that a car peeling out?”


“OK, no.”

“All right, well what else YOU got?”

“How about ‘EEuhEEuhEEuhEEuh!’?”

“Mmm…no. How about ‘OOF!’?”

“No. How about ‘Puh-TING!’? You know, like spit hitting a spittoon?”

“No. But what about ‘Psswsstsswssswss’?”

“No. What IS that?”

“Nothing, it’s…nothing.” George looked away and blushed.

“Oh, come on–out with it. It’s something.”

“It’s…fine, it’s the sound of a careless whisper of a good friend, OK?”

“A what?”

“Nothing, it’s just…it’s a phrase that came to me the other day, all right? Just forget it. And it’s your turn anyway–what else you got?”

Andrew thought for a minute, then it came to him. He slapped his palm on the table. “WHAM! I’ve got it. I–”

“‘WHAM!’, eh? I like that…I like it a lot. I think we have ourselves a band name, mate!”

George stood up and extended his hand. Andrew also stood, reached across the table, and shook George’s hand.

So that was it, then. Andrew was actually in the middle of proposing ‘BoiyoiyoiYOINGGG!’ as the band’s name, but George liked ‘WHAM!’ and, well, he didn’t seem to like anything else, so fine: ‘WHAM!’ it was.

He had plans to ditch George and make it big as a solo artist the first chance he got anyway, so whatever. George could have this one.

  1. Were they in a public bathroom in Beverly Hills when George proposed WHAM!? No wonder George dumped him for not taking the hint.

  2. And George laughed all the way to the bank.
