Carl stood at the shore, bracing himself against the gale. He enjoyed the synchronicity – sipping a pint of Spindrift whilst being soaked by the spindrift. He knew he couldn't dawdle. He set up the lever, ensuring the fulcrum was in place to fling his parcel over the cliff.

Business was booming at his restaurant a few yards inshore. He's the hottest new chef – his kidney stew adored by critics, even those who loathe offal. Only he knew the secret ingredient – adenoids are easy to remove. Who needs to butcher a body when a tiny bit will do?

    And another in the challenge - subject given to me by @audioandvisual - subject, catering. Words, spinthrift, adenoids and fulcrum.

    Again, I really like your writing. There's a vein of surrealism running through many of your drabbles which appeals to me.
