Terrible Minds’ Flash Fiction: The Numbers Game

Ain’t It Easy

The easiest part about being a bishop is talking in front of a crowd. It only takes half an hour.

The hardest part about time travel is the blisters. It takes days to find relief.

The easiest part about being friends with Jesus is the back and forth. He’s a very social guy.

The hardest part about lying to a congregation is knowing that you’re just shoving a lollipop into their collective mouth.

The easiest part about accepting an offering plate every Sunday is that a close friend told you there’s nothing after you die.

    I like this. The repetition gave it an almost lyrical quality, and i like the slow reveal of the bishop’s true beliefs and where he got them from. Nicely done.

      Thanks, Tom. I write a lot of songs. I think with a small word count, it’s more likely to come out of me similar to lyrics. Thanks for reading 🙂

    I really like the way you told this story. I just want to keep going back and reading it again. And again.
