Quarterback and Co. by Chuma Nwokolo

2nd August, 2004. My name is George Franz. Although I am not entirely sure, I suspect that a disastrous fate has just overtaken me. I will set down the bare facts: about ten minutes ago an insect probably settled on my temple, extended its proboscis, and sucked approximately a quarter of my brains out. To set things in proper perspective, and to remind myself, I should mention that I am an efficiency analysis manager at KwoiTech, an FTSE company that hires its management very carefully and polices their health just as solicitously...

Quite a tale! Very unusual with an unexpected end. I quite enjoyed it!

On other thing I like about this story is its surrealism. Not your usual kind of story
