Head Doctor

"Doctor! Please help me!"

"Whatís the problem?"

"I canít write post card fiction."

"Letís have a look. Uh-oh. Your head has too many bumps."

"Is that bad?"

"Might be. Ah-hah! Your Fiction-Writing Bump is an inch too high. Makes you too wordy. Hmm. Your Excessive Description Bump sticks out too far. Makes you write trivial details. Both bumps need adjustment."

"And then Iíll be able to write short fiction?

"Yep."

"Whatís your fee?"

"For $200, Iíll fix everything."

"When?"

"Right now. You got insurance?"

"Iíll pay cash."

"Wonderful. Just lay back and get comfortable. Nurse, help me with this sledge hammer."
