Trivia. I always liked useless information. Like all the actors to have played Dr. Who (even though die hards will know the character was The Doctor), the names of the 7 dwarfs in the Grimm's fairy tale, and how many deadly sins there were. So, when I was asked (by the man himself, if man is the right word) "What is my name?" I knew what it wasn't. It wasn't Frankenstein. That was the name of his creator, but so many thought it the name of his monstrous offspring. Frankenstein's Monster was possibly the closest he'd ever come to an identity.

How I came to be confronted by the creature must wait until another time. However, he demanded an answer. My youngest child whispered her wisdom in his mottled ear, and he smiled and left us safe and alone. I asked later what she said.

"Consequence." she replied.

First of, I like your use of the language.You seem to have a large vocabulary and a very high grammatical understanding.

What I like about this story in particular, is that I don't really get it. It leaves me with several question marks. Or maybe I am just good ol' fashion stupid. Either way, great story in my opinion.

You've really figured this whole "6 minute" thing out, it seems...

Unintentional double post. Nice.

Thanks. It was inspired by a chance remark in a late night documentary on Channel 4 last night, wbere one of the pundits being interviewed remarked that so many people thought Frankenstein was the monster's name, but he didn't have one. Judt recently I warched

I do all sorts of things. Mostly badly. Mostly better than others. I tell stories. Occasionally, I lie.
