Camera Issues

He smacked the side of the small television a few times. That didn't straighten the picture out at all. Sighing, he went to the back office and tried unplugging the wire to the main monitor.

"Please work!"

Plugging the wire back in showed nothing but static.


He put the ladder up near the shelving in the back room and climbed to the top. Grabbing the long stick that looked a lot like a broom handle he hopped up on the wooden shelf as quietly as possible.

"I don't get payed enough for this" whispering as he made his way to the back corner.

Raising the ceiling tile as quietly as possible he peered through the darkness. From the faint light cascading from all the different places he could see the silhouette gnawing on the wires. Thankfully it was turned away from him. Ever so slightly he pushed the stick through the small gap he had made.

The quick jab startled the creature and it was gone in a puff of dust. Coughing and throwing the stick to the floor, Richard climbed down the ladder muttering "Goddamn ceiling unicorns..."


  1. Ha! People always depict unicorns as shiny and gentle, but no one talks about how they chew all your cables and leave glitter on the floors.

  2. not quite how i depicted unicorns, but it makes sense, something has to keep the ceiling cat population in check
