Fridge Flash: The Enemy

May 2, 2018

Today’s Fridge Flash is from Nikhil Sampath, a  young writer and cleaning warrior who strikes fear in the hearts of dust bunnies everywhere.

 

by Nikhil Sampath

 

The Enemy

Constellations on a carpet. They glimmer dark and gray. Use the vacuum with tough brushstrokes, deprive it of its liberation, from its viewpoint, you are an enemy. But you are just establishing your fortitude. You must not become Laissez-Faire with this enemy. You must defeat it. Down with carpet lint!

 

Nikhil Sampath is an Rubik’s cube enthusiast and an ardent Harry Potter fan. He loves origami, Legos, and the piano.
