Trust But Verify

(It’s been a while since I wrote a hundred-word story.  Here’s hoping that the next one comes along a little sooner.)

“I said I was sorry!”

“Great. You’re sorry. Meanwhile, I am starting to like the taste of flies. Figure out the problem and change me back, pronto. My skin is drying out.”

My lab partner hopped back into the sink full of cool water. Large, bulging eyes stared accsuingly.

“Is this one of your incantations or did you get it from a grimoire?”

“One of mine.”

“And you didn’t test it?”

“I ran it through the validator.”

“I ran it through the validator,” she repeated mockingly. “How many times have I told you not to rely on the spell checker?”
