On a whim I’d bought this new product, “Cauliflower in a Can” for lunch. The instructions said, “Remove from the can and add two drops of water.” I opened it, took out this dehydrated, shrunken lump, and added the water. One minute later it went “poof”, but I didn’t have lunch.
I stared, for on my plate sat a Muppet Cauliflower. “Uh, hello? What just happened and where’s my lunch?”
“Um, you’re not Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and this isn’t Muppet Labs?”
“No, afraid not.” I sighed and reached for the phone. First call for takeout, second to Muppet Labs.
You are about to sit down for lunch when:
a) an alien arrives.
b) your lunch begins talking to you.
c) the microwave explodes
b) stay and chat?
c) make dessert?
Tell me about it, in up to 100 words. And don't use *all* the prompts, because that's just greedy.
Your story may be serious or lighthearted or as silly as you like so long as it is 100 or fewer words.
