“Next stop: the year 3000!” Jimmy turned several dials.
“Here we go!” Mark shouted.
The machine shook, then stopped. They stepped out.
“The future looks awesome!” commented Jimmy.
“The machine is malfunctioning! We’ll be stuck here forever!”
“Oh, well. That was great anyway. I haven’t played in a cardboard box for ten years.”

This was an assignment in my creative writing class. The object was to write a story that was exactly 55 words long, with a surprise ending. Doesn't it remind you of playing in boxes as a kid?
