Seriously? Is my *dog* pregnant?

Years ago I was a receptionist at an animal hospital. I received a call from someone with a very strong French accent. From what I could gather, he had a dog who was pregnant and he had a lot of questions about the pregnancy.

"When's the bitch due?", I asked, using proper canine terminology.

It was Autumn in Melbourne and my Dad was driving me somewhere. We walked through the beautiful orange and red crunchy leaves on the footpath and hopped into the car quickly.

Stan’s Bike Has A Creepy Admirer

I grew up in the suburbs of Albuquerque and we lived in close proximity to nature. My younger brother Stan had just received a new bike as his birthday gift – it looked brilliant in black and red. Every day, when he returned from school, he would take the bike on a ride through the neighborhood.

Why is it called bytestories?

This is a place for "byte-sized" stories and there is a 1500 character (about 250 words) limit for two main reasons. Firstly, we want you to know that "War and Peace" isn't required to leave your mark. Secondly, it takes about 2 minutes to read each story meaning you can head here whenever you want a quick (and entertaining) read.
