Not What They Used To Be

I could see in my periphery that Janet was watching porn at her desk this morning. The boss was out and it was just her and I in the office. Janet was making weird noises. I turned to look at her- it seemed like she was trying to get my attention.

"Fuck, what is that?" I asked.

"Bestiality websites are not what they used to be," she said.

"Why are you watching that?"

"I'm decompressing."

"Are you okay?"

"Yeah, I was just up really late."

"Doing what?"

"Working on explosives."

There was something really horrible happening on her screen.

"I love you," Janet said.

"I have to go to the bathroom," I said.

My favorite stories are the ones where the writer allows you to fill in a lot of the narrative with your own imagination. This is one of those stories.
