EP Flash: One Million Years B.F.E.

By Merrie Haskell.
Read by Deborah Green.

Am determined to become strong, lithe, deadly, noble cave-woman type
figure, √° la Ayla of Clan of the Cave Bear. I will fashion stone tools,
hunt and gather food and live pristine, pure life of Homo Erectus-type
person–at one with nature. Ah. Air is so fresh. Quite lovely.

Rated G. Contains ignoble savagery and predomestic strife.

    Laughed. A lot.

  3. This is great stuff… perfect for the codependent hyena-loving soft scientist in all of us.

    Hy-sterical.

    This piece was wonderfully written and expertly read. The best flash fiction I’ve heard here and that’s saying something.

    Thanks Merrie, Deborah & Steve!

    As an anthropologist with more than 6 months intensive training, I was hooting through this.

    Still, what did she do to try to fix Philmore??????

    Great fun and sobering assessment of our “modern” day knowledge. Let us not loss our archetypal connections.
