8th Annual Contest of Whatever – C o W 2021 – Big ‘ol XXX

This time last year I had this C o W post ready to go, and then … Murphy struck big time.

But I saved it … I didn’t XXX it out – now here it is 🙂

Big ‘ol X in the sky

The Eighth Annual Contest Of Whatever!

The Seventh Annual Contest Of Whatever!

In case you’re wondering, this is a fun contest hosted by the Evil Squirrel’s Nest. You can find out more by clicking the above link.

Last time the Topic was Murphy’s Law … This year it is X.

Murphy’s law is an adage or epigram that is typically stated as: “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong”.

Chompers the Chopper riding squirrel was having a bad day.

Chompers got his name because he was always chomping on nuts. He was the champ chopper.

Now Chompers rode his Chopper Motorcycle like a champion chopper rider should. He rode around looking for the best nuts to chomp.

But, this was a crappy day.

“Cowabunga!” Chompers said, and his false choppers fell out of his mouth. Yeah, he wore chopper dentures – you know, he’d worn out his real teeth on all those hard nuts he’d always cracked.

He turned on the standing light, so he could find his choppers that had fallen to the floor. But, as he did, the plastic cone shaped shade crumbled into a cazillion pieces.

“Cowabunga!” Chompers said again. Now what?

Well, he went to the kitchen to find a knife to repair the light with. But, he couldn’t find it anywhere.

“Cowabunga!” Chompers said again. “I must have accidentally thrown the knife in the trash. So he had to dig … and dig … and dig … Ewwww! But he found the knife.

“Cool!” Chompers said as he held the knife up. But, then he dropped it and it stabbed his toe.

“Cowabunga!” Chompers said again, as he hopped around dripping blood all over the kitchen.

As he hopped and bled, he stepped on his lost Chopper teeth in the floor, and broke them. But at least he found them.

Chompers finally managed to gather his wits, and hopped out the door to ride his Chopper. But which doctor should he see first? The one who would give him stitches for his toe, or the dentist to fix his Chopper teeth?

But, never mind – Murphy struck again before he could do anything. It snowed and was icy, and he couldn’t ride his  chopper.

But, never mind – He caught a cold or the flu, and didn’t feel like going anyway.

“Cowabunga!”

And then … and then … the flu (or maybe it was Covid? probably was) got him (me) sent to the hospital in an ambulance and had to stay there for a week! It was awful.

So then … everyone realized there was the virus and everyone had to stay home to be safe.

I didn’t get to post my entry last year so here it is … glad I didn’t X it out.

  1. Thank you for not X’ing out the entry you worked on for last year! Poor Chompers was probably happy when he got to put a big X through that day on the calendar. Thank you so much for playing! The more the merrier, and the more different ways I can enjoy the theme being handled!

    • Thanks so much, Bill!
      Yes, an X over all the Murphy’s things that happened. Glad you like the story. It’s so much fun to think of something for your contest. 🙂

  3. Love it! Haven’t heard the word “Cowabunga” in a long time…..it still sounds to me like what happens if you leave a cow out in a field after a big meal. HAHA Seriously – this is a great story and I’m glad you saved it !

    Hugs, Pam

    • Thanks so much, Pam! Glad you liked reading this silly story. Oh, now you mention it, cowabunga does sound like the cow making a mess out in the field! haha !
      I think I was going for a lot of C words is why I chose that word, plus a kind of nod to the CoW. 🙂

    • Thanks, Draliman! Yes, I think Chompers and I have a lot in common – both of us are klutzes. No, he didn’t have a spare and had to just eat mushy food until he got his chompers repaired. haha! 🙂
