    “Excuse me, sir, Might I interest you…”

    “Diiiiieeee evil minion of chaos!” I howled politely, while simultaneously discharging a raging torrent of liquid plasma from the flamethrower embedded in my forearm, which is my way of saying, “Please don’t come to the door before I’ve had my first cup of coffee.”

    I’m subtle like that.

    1. This was a 55 fiction post.

      I saw the concept mentioned at The Wordy Bitch. Well, credit where credit is due, which is probably why I am all un-credit-ized and stuff.

    2. I love it!

      Very clever, very unexpected. I’m going to check out more “Wisdom of Henry” later today.

    3. Glad you liked it :)

    4. Must have been the Mormons. Whenever they come to my door I tell them I’d love to talk but I’m afraid I’m right in the middle of the Ritual of Ka and if the goat’s blood grows cold I have to start all over again. After they pause to determine if I’m joking, I reply, “hey, gimme a break; I couldn’t find any virgins.” Then I look at them with narrowed eyes for a moment and add, “Heeeeyy, you guys are virgins, right? Well c’mon in! I’d love to talk to ya about your religion and stuff!”

      For some reason they never do take me up on it. Strange.

    5. lol
      I just tell them to piss off. Shows my lack of imagination I guess.

    6. I’m the same without coffee! Don’t bother me, I don’t have a flamethrower though…any suggestions?

    7. You mean as to where you can get a flamethrower? I don’t recommend that. Really, they’re not nearly as safe as they look. Leave those things for cartoon superheros.
