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.

Top Bunk Bottom Bunk

Part of the fun of travelling is meeting new people, and what better way to do so than in a mixed dorm? Unfortunately, what with not being able to vote people in an out of your dorm big brother style you pretty much have to deal with what, or who, you are given.

On the (pocket knife's) edge in Perhentian Islands

I was travelling through Malaysia and heard through fellow travelers that the Perhentian Islands were worth a visit. I took a bus to Kuala Besut and then a boat out to the islands.

I arrived too late in the day so missed the last boat. The town seemed deserted so I went off to find a hostel.

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.
