Fly on the wall

By Bryan

ZZZhit! Why’s it so FRIGGIN cold in here?! Is it me? It must be me. Gotta get my wings de-iced. What’s this thermostat say? Crap! I can’t read! Gotta get someone to turn it up. Ooh – who’s that? The new guy? He’ll do. Now to buzz his ear – Whoa! He’s a quick one! Not to worry – the ol’ Dodge, duck, dip, dive and dodge trick evades ‘em every time. Better back off just in case.
Look up here, dude! Look! The thermostat! You know you wanna turn it up. You’re cold, man! You’re already rolling down your sleeves. Crank that heat! Crank it! Uh oh. Who’s this now? The blonde from accounting? Man, she works fast! She’s got him smiling now, though … good … now make some small talk … the weather … good, man – you’re almost there … How cold is it out? Cold enough to TURN UP THE HEAT! C’mon – be the man! Turn it up for her! Hurry! She’s walking away! Ugh. You blew it, dude.
Aha – you’ve go the temp on your computer screen! Look at your screen, man! No – not your folder – over here! I’ll just land on the weather report here … uh oh … my feet won’t stick … slipping … slipping … Aw nuts! I’m on a coffee ad?!? Wait … he’s getting up. Good! Now just go over to the – NO! Not the coffee machine!!! Wings .. frozen shut … can’t move … I’ll just have to rub my hands and try to stay warm. Gotta get off this screen. Too … cold … must move wings …

Thunk.

I feel cold like that fly today!!

Good stream of concsiousness - I'm guessing that's the kind of attention span a fly would have!

I never realized that Flies had ADHD, but it makes total sense! You really captured the voice of a frenetic fly - you are Dr. Doolittle good. I especially like the hand rubbing part - brilliant. But, seriously, about that blonde in accounting...
