Flash Fiction: A Letter of Complaint

For Bonded Delivery, 2040


Dear Temporal Theorists Inc.,

If you are flummoxed by the receipt of this 150-year-old letter, imagine my surprise when your “time probe” crashed onto my barn and prize winning cow, Darla.

Please use your equipment to send compensation to the amount of $100, American.


D. Brown, Dakota Territory, 1889.

  1. What is amazing here is that there is a certain kind of person I imagine, who would so calmly respond to the appearance of a time probe in their farm land. A very pragmatic and, simultaneously, very knowledgeable farmer who is probably super okay with his or her mortality…. By all that I mean, I see a great character here. Some farmer that has had more than one close encounter with some interesting things. lol.
