    Well, I finished a story for this one. Comes in at 375 words - and I'm not dropping a one.

    Yeah, I'm saving it. Time to think of a new idea for this challenge...

    "Pre-owned" -- Even a disappointing venture is worthy of celebrating in verse.

    "Discovery" -- The wheels of science grind slowly, but they grind exceeding fine.

    "Of Ash and Fire" -- It takes wisdom to understand what you find.

    "In the Year 2525" -- With a light touch, the author offers a wry look at modern obsessions.

    "Dig" -- A mysterious and evocative tale of discoveries best not made.

    "In the Footsteps of History" -- A captivating look at how the present so quickly becomes the past.

    My first attempt was over 300 words, but I want to keep it - possibly use it elsewhere.

    I believe Cathbad may be bluffing and has already entered a story.
