“Next stop: the year 3000!” Jimmy turned several dials.
“Here we go!” Mark shouted.
The machine shook, then stopped. They stepped out.
“The future looks awesome!” commented Jimmy.
“Uh-oh…”
“What?”
“The machine is malfunctioning! We’ll be stuck here forever!”
“Oh, well. That was great anyway. I haven’t played in a cardboard box for ten years.”

This was an assignment in my creative writing class. The object was to write a story that was exactly 55 words long, with a surprise ending. Doesn't it remind you of playing in boxes as a kid?
