A Brave New World – 100 words

At first the new Mi-K 3000 was the perfect addition to our busy home. ‘Mikey’ cleaned the house. He cooked, he shopped…  …and he listened.

Then I downloaded the ‘massage update’ and Mikey helped me unwind while Gerry watched the game. With no chores left around the house Gerry began hanging out with his mates.

What the hell did he expect would happen? One night, Gerry came home early and the truth came out. He used a baseball bat to ‘de-programme’ Mikey, then stormed out of my life.

I was devastated.

At least until yesterday, when the Mi-K 4000 arrived.

  1. Haha, I love this. I wrote a short story (3,000 words) in which the husband is “cheating” on his wife with a female android until he finds his WIFE “cheating” with a male android. At 100 words, this is a great variation on the android-sex theme. Philip K. Dick would be proud. Well done.
