  • I know the semester isn’t over yet. But even so, I need a vacation. So while the students are taking the math test, I’m at my little desk discreetly booking airline tickets

  • figuring out the farthest I could escape from this place, when an ad caught my eye. "Pioneering Commercial Space Flight to Space! 90% Paid for by Yours Truly, Mr. Spankleshmire!"

  • “Great, aren’t those space flights 10 million credits? 90% off is still more money than I can come up with, by a long shot. Wait, that’s it - a long shot!” I hurried toward the maglev tube entrance with 10 credits and a wild idea.

  • Blocking the tube entry portal from one side to the other like a neglected piece of machinery, was a MAG5 Secure-O-Bot. It's groin rifle aiming directly at me as it's scanner wiped a bright red contour line from my head to my boots and back again. I had it's undivided attention.

  • I thought carefully about my next move, knowing that the groin rifle could do far more damage than nearly any other weapon in the universe. It was clear that the MAG5 SoB was not going to let me pass, I would have to resort to other tactics. Fortunately, I had a water balloon.
