Reality TV Intergalactic Wife Swap postcard science fiction from Rob Hopcott

Dear Reality TV Little Swap Sister,

It's Prudence here.

I'm writing this intergalactic postcard hoping it will get through to you soon because I want out of here!

When I agreed to be swapped with a wife from another species, I did at least expect that they would have two legs, two arms and one head. After all - as I learned in my Texas hometown school - we are all created in Gods image!

But, after travelling uncomfortably for billions of miles in a tin can, to be faced with a two metres tall hairy intelligent spider who expects me to eat him after we have made love is just totally unreasonable and I want out of here! Immediately!

Love

Prudence.

Dear Reality TV Little Swap Sister,

It's Harold here.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for my wonderful intergalactic wife swap who is absolutely fantastic.

Admittedly, she doesn't seem to keep the place as clean as Prudence - there are cobwebs everywhere - but the, er, physical side is literally out of this world. I'm loving every minute of having all those legs wrapped around me and she is an absolutely voracious lover! I'm breaking out the champagne!

Guess what! My new intergalactic wife swap even reckons we might have started to make some babies together already.

How fantastic to have intergalactic offspring - a first for your Reality TV show!

The tip-off that she's pregnant, she tells me, is that she's beginning to feel really hungry after making love.

Tonight, after yet more love-making, she says we are going to have a special lunch together!

With the love-making so good, I can't wait for the meal :-)

Woohoo!

Yours Gratefully

Harold.

A Green Car for Christmas - Rob Hopcott's Christmas story for 2008

When the car parked next to me drew away without a sound, I was startled and did a double take which was noticed by its driver who gave me a broad smile suggesting he was proud of his silently moving motor vehicle and pleased it had drawn attention.

It was quite unnerving to see such a large vehicle noiselessly gliding down our busy high street past all the brightly lit shops and shoppers who were out buying their gifts and presents for Christmas.

Obviously, I realised that it must be one of the new breed of cars that are powered by electricity in town but use a conventional petrol driven engine for longer distances, but I still couldn't help but stand and follow the progress of this strange new car as it built up speed down the road.

Puzzlingly, nobody seemed to be paying it much attention but, inveterate reporter of life in all its strange forms as I am, the seeds of a small article on green fuel was already germinating in my writer's mind.

So I stopped to make a note in my ideas for articles notebook that I always carry in my pocket everywhere I go.

It occurred to me that such a green powered car would be an ideal present for my wife although, of course, not one that an impecunious author like me could ever afford.

I was just turning away to continue my search for my wife's Christmas present when the car reached the end of the street ... increased its speed ... and took off.

As I stood transfixed like a dummy watching this four door saloon disappearing into the clouds, I could just see the driver looking back with red cheeks and smiling eyes and hear him laughing.

"Ho, Ho, Ho ... Merry Christmas and Goodwill to All Men!"

The End

Bye for now

P.S. Every year, I write a Christmas short story or flash fiction for all my friends online and otherwise instead of sending out Christmas cards and this flash postcard fiction is my Christmas story card to you for 2008.

It is a small thing but I hope it gives you some pleasure.

Perhaps you would also like to read some of my Christmas stories from previous years :-)

Ho, Ho, Ho ... Merry Christmas to all, and a Happy New year!

"Snip goes your tie that you wore to work each day to ogle that adulterous bitch.

"Slash goes your shirt that you unbuttoned to press flesh to flesh at your despicably secret rendezvous."

"Splash goes the petrol."

"Scratch goes the match."

"May your soul burn in hell."
