Bathroom Monologue: Wire Cutters

“The wire cutters,” Chris asked for the third time. He turned from the bomb’s ticking counter and looked at the other guy. The guy was sifting through the toolbox. Chris spat the words directly into his face. “Wire cutters. What are you, deaf?”

Rather than reach into the box, the man raised his hands and signed, “Yes.”

That didn’t feel good. Neither did the bomb going off behind him.


  1. *laughs!* Ohhh I feel guilty laughing. Ah well. ;)

  2. "What we have here… is a failure to communicate!"

  3. Glad you folks laughed. It is a little awful, before it all blows up.

  4. Wow. Worst bomb-squad coordinator EVER.
