Friday Fictioneers: Bazoom and the Dangerous Waddle Boxes

Well it’s time for something a little lighter than my last entry “Kicking the Dust Off”. I am going totally Sci-fi, Hitchhiker’s Guide on this one folks. Also by way of explanation when I first wrote this piece I saw the mouse as a Zoomba automatic vacuum cleaner. It wasn’t until reading several other posts that I realized I was dealing with a remote mouse. Anyway rather than change the story I went with my original interpretation of the picture. Thanks as always to Rochelle for providing the inspiration. Check out her site when you’ re done here to see what other stories this photo prompt inspired.

Bazoom and the Dangerous Waddle Boxes

by JE LIllie

When humanity created the waddle boxes no one thought they could be dangerous. After all they were only supposed to be automated mail delivery systems for interoffice communication. But give a box a brain and they think it’s the green light to take over the universe. It’s always been that way with squares. Think about it.

All it took was a simple adjustment to their vortex transceivers  and the waddle boxes went from teleporting mail between Ciprotech and Genofirm to transporting humans into the eye of Jupiter.

That’s when the humans made me. I’m Bazoom. If mailboxes can take over the world, vacuum cleaners should be able to take it back. Think about it.

  1. Funny stuff! Especially loved the line, “It’s always been that way with squares. Think about it.”

    The more the stories I read based on this photo, the more ominous that mouse looks.

  2. Very cute little story. And, what an interesting interpretation and inspiration for something new and different. 🙂 Thanks for visiting my blog site, recently. It’s always great to meet new bloggers and followers. Happy writing. 🙂
