Weekly Writing Challenge 2012: A Picture Is Worth 1,000 Words

Nobody would have suspected that Alan McAllester, a well-like local businessman  would have murdered his wife. But on August 15th, 1953, that is exactly what he did. He had no particular reason to want her dead. She was a lovely woman, pretty, a good cook, and took great care of their home and family. However, she had this annoying habit of making him the same 3 things for breakfast. He realized this one day when he was over at an associate’s house for a morning meeting and his wife presented them with a delicious spread of sticky buns, caramel pecan rolls, muffins, eggs, bacon, sausage and more. He had choices. For once in his life, it was up to him what he ate. This was the seed that was planted that day. Choices. Over the next few months he slowly became more and more angry that his wife never asked what he wanted to eat. She just kept making the same. damn. thing. And one day, while she was frying his eggs, he stabbed her. And went in the office as though it were a normal day.

  1. Wow. What a crazy story. I’m afraid to think this, but things like this must happen everyday without us knowing. Yikes!
