Nox and Grimm will be on hiatus for a couple weeks while I finish that e-book for ‘A Story for Japan’.  In the mean time, here’s a microfic inspired by a twitter conversation with @jimbronyaur    –   See Jim? I told you collect calls from the underworld were trouble 🙂


“Lucifer, you have to quit calling like this.”

“C’mon, grandma. You know I only get one call a millennia, don’t hang up.”

*sighs* “Fine, so long as you stop calling me your Grandmother.”

“You’re Holy Mary, mother of God, right? He created us, so that makes you Grandma.”

“You’re lucky I’m a good person. What do you want, Lucifer?”

“Do you think maybe you could have a word with Dad about the length of my prison term?  At least get him to post bail.”

“Based on what, your good behavior?  I’m sorry, but I can’t help you if you won’t help yourself.”

*grumbles* “Whatever. Can you at least get me some more minutes for my cell phone?”

“Now that I can do. Anything to get you to quit calling collect.”

“You’re a saint, Granny.”  *click* “Hello? Mary? You still there?”

thanks for the writing prompt, even if it was unintentional 😀

Hilarious little snippet there, Angie. I really loved it. Mary truly is patient and clement. The grandma analogy is too twisted. XD

thanks! You’d have to be patient, with him as a ‘grandson’ 😀

Very clever.
I laughed out loud and was only a little offended.
Good work.

thanks 🙂 I do try to be an Equal Opportunity Offender – I poke fun at everyone *grinz*

Ahahaha! This is hilarious good fun Angie, so glad you had that talk with Jim!

techtigger - April 1, 2011

thanks! Jim said something about the devil calling him, and my warped little brain just ran with it 🙂

A fun, modern piece on a age old story.

techtigger - April 4, 2011

What a fun piece. Now I have an image of Saint Granny of the cell tower in my head.

*lol* best calling plan in the cosmos! And 4g coverage everywhere 😀

7. Maria Kelly - April 5, 2011

This is a hoot, Angie! I could just picture it. That’s how warped and twisted my mind is!

techtigger - April 8, 2011

what does that say about me? *lol* I’m glad you liked it!

8. Mari Juniper - April 8, 2011
