100-word Challenge: Wisdom of Patience

April 8, 2015

100word challengeProfessor Capstick walked steadily towards the staffroom. The opportunity to add three additional courses to the program excited him. He knew the other professors at Stoicism Institute for Higher Wisdom would also be thrilled and anxious to discuss the best three of the dozen possibilities.

He turned the knob and swung open the door. What he found inside stopped him cold. Instead of celebrating the added educational possibilities, all seven were just arguing amongst themselves while Professor Hornsbee lay bleeding beside his desk.

“Have you lost your minds?” shouted Professor Capstick.

“Not at all,” said Professor Jamieson. “Only our patience.”

    I can see this happen too. I like down-to-earth stories we can all associate with. 🙂 Wonderful.

    Good story. Sometimes accompanying the wisdom of patience there needs to be the wisdom of silence. 🙂
