Office meeting. My boss is spewing out the latest pitch about how we need to be more warrior-like, referencing SEAL Team Six, the Spartans, the Gurkhas, blah blah blah. From behind his coke-bottle thick glasses, he gives us a pasty smile and tells us he has a special treat for us. Walks out of the room and comes back wearing a rising sun headband, and begins prancing around on the meeting table, slicing the air with a katana and yelling in a 1,000,000% testosterone-free voice. I roll my eyes and open my eReader to Echo. Magic flash. A band of Ewoks appear in the corner and cut the rope of a log-swing booby trap. It rockets forward and smashes my boss in the nuts, causing him to vomit and pass out. All of us are laughing. I shake the hand of an Ewok and thank him, to which he replies, “Ichuta!” Then he jumps into my arms and gives me a hug.
Meetings are horrible. But there is a solution: Ewoks and their log-swing booby traps. Get Echo Vol. 1 on Kindle here: Vol. 1 on Kindle. Vol. 2 on Kindle here: Vol.2 on Kindle. Links for Vol.2 on Smashwords/Nook/iBooks/Kobo are available here: Echo on other platform
