100 Words or Less, Katy Comber

Never Date an English Major
by Katy Comber

As the task ebbed and flowed inside his brain, Simon looked for inspiration. The items before him included broken pencils, cold remnants of his half-eaten breakfast, a picture of his beloved... While staring at the congealing eggs before him, inspiration struck. Suddenly, Simon scribbled the phrase that would capture his heart in six words-- proving to his English major girlfriend that he cared: Lydia, I love you more than bacon.
