|In a dimly lit room, a clock chimes midnight. A mystery man stumbles upon a mysterious box and opens it. What is inside the box?|
Something moved in the cupboard. It was quite dark, late at night. In fact, the clock had just chimed midnight. At the bottom of the cupboard, under a heap of old shoes and clothing not worn for years, was a cardboard box. Inside the box were some dusty, faded toys. There were some sock puppets, a marionette, a stuffed giraffe, a pair of groovy Barbie and Ken dolls, a train with two wheels missing, a wooden soldier whose sword had been broken in some long-forgotten battle, and several jigsaws. And a strange buzzing noise coming from inside the box. He brought his ear to the box and the buzzing noise vibrated against his ear. He stuck his head inside the box and the toy came alive. A black buzzing cloud chased him around the strange room. " Let me outta here!" A few strange thoughts ran though his head while he was being chased around this strange house. Why does it smell like bacon cooking ? The room was strange too. He didn't recognize any of the furniture. A bunch of booths and stools? Menus? Where am I? And his clothes, although they were a good fit, surely didn't belong to him? He'd never had an apron. Or a nametag! As he followed the scent of bacon, he found the kitchen. The black buzzing cloud stopped chasing him and settled down in a booth in the corner. He sat down on a stool trying to puzzle out answers to all these questions, he slowly became aware of something in the back pocket of his trousers. Something hard. He put his hand in his pocket and pulled it out. A cookbook! He looked out to the window again and looked at the blinking neon sign... DENNY'S Aha! said the laughing dentist. That's when he remembered it was his turn to cook breakfast for the killer bees. Tweet
