Pixies, Snail Tipping, & a Small Monster

It’s short story week, and I’ve headed back to the world of the BBN to catch up with Patrick. If you haven’t run into him before, you might want to check out some of the older stories here (oldest are at the bottom of the page). Otherwise, read on for some behind-the-scenes, or head to this week’s story here. Enjoy!


Poor wee snails. Pixies should be ashamed of themselves.

I keep heading back to the BBN, because I like it over there. I know the characters, and they’re fun to hang out with, plus they have so much going on that just has no real bearing on the BBN itself, yet which make for entertaining stories (in my humble opinion, at least). And all the ingredients of this story really just felt as if they belonged quite nicely in the world of the BBN.

As to where the ingredients came from – honestly, I have no idea where the monster in the bathtub came from. I can’t remember. If it was from a tweet, thank you to whoever tweeted it. If it wasn’t – well, no idea. The snail tipping I do remember, however. I was horribly tired, and trying to say something about nail clippings (why, I’m not sure. I’m okay with not knowing that one). In my tiredness that became snail tipping, which led to a discussion with the SO about snail-tipping pixies, because of course it did. And because that was too appealing an idea to be left alone, it made its way over here.

So read on, enjoy, and watch out for those young pixie hooligans…

A Monster in the Bathtub

All she wanted was a nice peaceful bath…

    1. I *thought* it was a tweet! I need to start writing these down so I remember where they come from. Thank you, mysterious monster in a bathtub tweeter!
