Earlier today I found an old hard drive with over 10 years worth of random stuff on it, including a bunch of old stories I wrote. I thought I’d share some of them here, starting with this one–Finneus Flubb’s Amazing Melon Stand. I wrote this one in March of 2004.
There once was a boy named Finneus Flubb who swallowed a watermelon seed and so, of course, a watermelon vine grew in his stomach and up and out through his ears and nose. Instead of being alarmed when great strands of leafy green stuff, laden with bulbous melons, began to protrude from his face, Finneus dragged a card table and a knife to the side of the road where he started selling watermelon slices at twenty cents a pop and soon made a fortune.
