The Insertion Experiment, A Saturday Centus on Sunday

Jenny Matlock


The Saturday Centus challenges us to write a piece within 100 words, based on a prompt. I encourage you to jump aboard. Just click on the graphic above. It's great practice, and I've met wonderful peers this way. Plus, Jenny's our favorite teacher. I'm continuing the sci-fi series, with apologies to anyone who doesn't appreciate some Spock spoofing. This is a sequel to my last centus right here. The prompt is bolded. 
~~
"Go! Do it! Put it in, Spocky! Or are you still a chicken? Bach! Bach!"

Lil Spock's eyes and arms wander aimlessly. "Okay, okay, I just gotta find the betterest slot."                 

"Duh! There's just one that works right. This ain't starship science, Spocky!"

"I'm tryin'. I'm tryin'."

"Like you need a navigational matrix? You think I'm gonna tell ya 'Exit 181, 1/2 mile ahead'?"

"Really? Lemme see...Where's 181?"

James Earl Jones chimes in: "Will little Spock insert it properly?...What will transpire from this young couple's exploration?" Stay tuned.

  3. Have I been asleep or living in a parallel universe or what? I have just gone back to your first post of your saga. This is some mighty fine stuff here Robyn ;-) I am an armchair sci-fi fan, and I just love the play on words, and the whole risque thing...very, very cool. I wish I could think like you...I'll go meditate on it for a while...Namaste

  5. Is Spocky about to put a coin in a one-arm bandit? I'm betting against a jackpot.

  9. Thanks, all. I'm really glad you're enjoying this, since I have no idea what I've gotten myself - er, Spocky and Rita - into or how to get them out of it. I mean, well, yeah, no innuendos intended, not ever...May the force be with us all!

  16. Robyn, You just totally crack me up whenever I visit you. I would love to meet you in person sometime. Although I don't know if my sides could take laughing so much!

    Neat use of the prompt!
