Enjoy these flash fiction stories all about epiphanies.

I had an epiphany today about my priorities.

I no longer let my underwear soak in the sink while I shower because my cat recently started climbing into sink and sitting in the basin. I think that if I had soap in the sink she might ingest it and get sick. It occurs to me that I am more considerate of my cat than I am of my husband and that I take better care of my cotton workout panties than I do of myself.

I had an epiphany today about technology.

My kids’ cell phones enable them to text at the speed of light, find their way from anywhere on the planet to anywhere else in the universe, surf the Internet and download rap tunes and videos of kittens all while ignoring the people in the room with them. Too bad they are incapable of helping them to call their parents to let us know that they are running hours late and that we should eat without them. I am, however, hopeful about the next version (of kids).

I had an epiphany today about divorce agreements.

If I found out that I had an aggressive flesh easting virus or an inoperable tumor in a vital organ, I would find it strangely comforting that I would be legally obligated to give 75% of it to my husband’s ex-wife.

I had an epiphany today about Support Groups

I think that a support group for people afraid of elevators would have to have more than 12 steps.
