The thousand injuries of Fortunato

March 13, 2008

For weeks the area just outside my office door has been undergoing remodeling. And I do mean right outside my door. Sometimes the noise is really disturbing. Just the other day one of my office mates was remarking how impossible it was to get any work done.

“Oh, I know,” I said. “But you don’t know the half of it. Apparently there have been some changes to the remodeling plans.”

“Really?” he asked. “What changes?”

“Well, did you ever read The Cask of Amontillado?”

  1. “Fortunato!”

    No answer. I called again:

    “Fortunato!”

    No answer still. I thrust a torch through the remaining aperture and let it fall within. There came forth in return only a jingling of the bells.

    Gives me the creeps…everytime.


  2. I think that if you have any bodies hidden under the floor in your office you should probably do something about that before some construction worker stumbles upon it.

    Hey I just came up with an idea for an invention! A digital clock that emits a heartbeat sound to replace the traditional analog clock tick toc. It would be pefect for when you read Poe, King or whatever scary story writer you dig.

    Especialy late at night.

    During a storm? : )
