And then you put it in the blender… A 100 Word Story

Once again, I have a 100 word story in the Weekly Challenge. This week’s challenge was “And then you put it in the blender”. Please stop by the 100 Word Story site to vote for mine… er, your favorites. You can read my story alone below, or hear it by itself here. You can, as always, read and hear the rest of the stories at the 100 Word Story site. Be sure to vote for your favorite!
