Atomic theory – 100 WCGU

This week 100 Words Challenge for Grown-ups is a picture which reminds me of the leftovers at dividing a cake in smaller and smaller pieces. Exactly 100 words.

Offering cake at the office was a Friday tradition, and we took turns preparing it. When it was Ebenezer’s turn everybody knew to leave our hopes for a treat at home.

He was a mean bastard, and I suspect he took a pleasure seeing his colleagues scavenging over the crumbs.

As it became my turn we were already at the Democritus stage of dividing the remaining crumbs in half. But I decided to abandon the atomic experiment.

I looked at Ebenezer, saw menace in his eyes. Then I just took the last piece of cake.
