#100WCGU – Wk112 – Prompt: …photo… – 100 words – “Tangential Thinking”

10 Nov

Crazy George they called him. His strange ideas made him seem so, his latest just another example.

“There’s an Einstein-Rosen bridge* in the pond,” he claimed.

Everybody laughed. There wasn’t a bridge over the pond. That didn’t stop George. A few came to watch him jump headfirst into the pond. For a few minutes witnesses watched amused before pulling him out.

Taking a gasp of air, “Too small! Only my hand crossed. Proof!”

Over the next weeks, science journals reported discovery of a new species. Its DNA was unlike any on Earth. It was named xenophylum** Georgiensis after its discoverer.

* An Einstein-Rosen bridge is more commonly known as a wormhole. It is theoretically thought to be a “shortcut” through space-time.

** xenophylum – “xeno” from Greek meaning foreigner or stranger. “Phylum” in biological classification, it is one order below Kingdom. Xenophylum was used to represent an alien life form.
