Dear Sweet Looney Partner,

With Halloween around the corner, you would expect a spooky story from me. Let me surprise you with a funny story instead!

Heads up, please don’t read this while drinking anything. I’m not responsible if you shoot fluid out of your nose or mouth.

Let me take you back to when I was four years old. My parents brought me to the airport because someone was going somewhere or maybe someone was arriving from somewhere. Don’t know, don’t care.

My parents were busy talking to the other adults, whoever they were. I was left unsupervised but I was too afraid to leave my parents’ side, so I let my eyes wander.

They wandered far and wide until they landed on a very cute boy. He seemed to be around my age.

He held a packet of potato chips in his hand. I was mesmerized watching him stylishly bring one chip after another to his mouth with his other hand.

I surveyed the adults around him. They too were engaged in conversation. All I needed to know was that he was unsupervised as well. I gave my parents one last look before leaving their side.

I was careful not to make any sudden movement to prevent the boy from getting scared of me and I didn’t want my parents to know that I was sneaking away.

Finally, I was right in front of him. He stopped eating and smiled at me. I smiled back at him. My smile then evolved into a grin and he followed suit.

I slowly brought my right hand to his left cheek and caressed it. He just stood there rigid and wide-eyed, confused at what was going on.

I caressed his cheek a little while longer. I kept watching his eyes, bidding my time and it finally came when he closed his eyes a little too long before opening them up again.

SMACK!

That fool almost fell as an aftermath of my slap. I then pried the packet of potato chips out of his hands and bolted.

I had a head start because it took him a few seconds to realize what had happened before he started chasing me while crying loudly.

Hahahahahahahahahahahaha, what a loser!

His howls alerted all the adults around us because this boy was LOUD! See, this was the flaw in my plan. My undoing. I should have threatened him to keep quiet or lured him somewhere isolated.

But I shouldn’t be too hard on myself. I was just four and didn’t have much experience in scheming.

Oh yes, back to the story. His parents were chasing him and mine were chasing me in the middle of a busy airport. Finally, my parents caught me and snatched the potato chips out of my hands.

The boy’s parents were trying to calm him down but to no avail. He only stopped when he got back his potato chips.

My parents then apologized to him and his parents and made me do it too. I know, the audacity!

Now you’re probably wondering what happened to me after that. Nothing much at the airport but after we got back home, I got spanked so hard!

No worries, it didn’t stop me from committing other mischievous deeds but that’s a story for another letter. I know you’ve been going through a tough time and I hope my story made you smile.

Sincerely,

The-Boy-Slapping-and-Potato-Chip-Stealing Thief

    So. you are destined to be the CEO of a potato chip manufacture. Judging by this story, you will use whatever means possible to crush your competitors. I will purchase your chips, not from loyalty, but fear. LOL

    I must admit the way you said that you stopped and stared at the boy and even went as far as to caress his face, I thought it was as if you have your first crush but reading the next line immediately gave it a new twist. I say brilliantly done. So did this mischievous gene disappear or is it still present now?

  • The Dani Writer7 months ago

    Confession: I've been ducking so many horror/blood & gore stories that I know are your specialty that I somehow missed this one. Quite bummed because it's sooo funny and such a hoot! Wondering whether I can finagle something to 'bleep' whenever you write humour cuz this story is hilarious 🤣

    LOL. Well, that's one way to get a cute boy's attention. I bet he will never forget her. He is now haunted whenever he opens a bag of chips. I love it!
