Garth stood in front of the workshop, a box of equipment in his hands and a heavy sack by his side, breathing in the smell of grease.

He had fond memories of time spent here, watching his grandfather cutting and grinding chunks of metal into various tools.  Wiping the sweat off his face with an oily rag he’d look down and grin at Garth, then pull his mask down and go back at it, sending sparks flying like fireworks.  His grandfather worked there until the company went bankrupt.

Garth sighed, smiling at the memories.

Time to cook some more meth.

    Bet Garth’s grandad would have something to say about that if he knew!

    Wow – you have a wicked sense of humor and I love it. Good story and Good writing! Also, you skydive? You are one of the lucky ones who can jump from a perfectly good airplane. Thanks!

    Ha ha great ending.

  5. Love the imagery of the second para. Great last line (although I don’t approve his activity).

  6. What a great twist at the end! It’s probably a good thing his granddad isn’t around any more.

  7. Crap!! I hope Grandpa’s ghost comes back and haunts him until he stops, although he probably won’t recognize it if Grandpa does!


  8. Dear Imaginator,

    Ack! I didn’t see that end coming and, I suspect, neither will Garth if he keeps it up. Good writing.
