I went to turn on my TV, but it wouldn’t. I thought, “Time to change the batteries.” I removed the back; the batteries had exploded. The whole compartment was covered in dry battery chemicals. It was so bad I could barely get the batteries out.
I finally removed the batteries and went to retrieve replacement ones. When I got to the box, I found that all those batteries had leaked too.
What are the chances that all my batteries would leak at the same time?
It was as if some villain broke in and used an energy weapon to cause all my batteries to break.
Sigh. At least I got a plot for a story from all this. Now, I just have to figure out why someone would use a doomsday weapon to make people’s batteries explode. Maybe I can mix in the news about North Korea announcing a “Christmas gift.” Or maybe something about some villain destroying batteries so children’s Christmas toys wouldn’t work. Is it too early to start planning for next year’s Christmas special?
Do you have any weird stories? Not necessarily paranormal, just…strange. Let me know in the comments section.
Until next wormhole…thanks for reading.
