The crunching sound reminded me of a child eating cereal without milk. That it emanated from my left kneecap in Morse code was rather disturbing.
Not that I understood Morse code. The Cub Scouts expelled me before that lesson. But I could hear short crunches and long crunches in a distinctive pattern, so I surmised it was Morse code.
I frantically copied the dashes and dots on the back of an envelope, then found an app on my phone to decipher them into words. I stared, stunned, at the result. Hello, we’ve been trying to reach you about your vehicle’s warranty.

As one who has received thousands of vehicle warranty calls from all over the nation and who also has a persistent clicking in my knee, I am disturbed. That being said, I am laughing hysterically and sharing your post with my family.
Well laid out, descriptive, and downright funny!
Helen Connell says
This really made me laugh. Great Flash!
Congrats on a great flash story. Funny!
Bob Ellis says
Hysterical. Really hit a nerve, but in my elbow!
Ed N. White says
I love it. I live it. A huge laugh. I will read it aloud to my knee brace as I struggle with the Velcro closures
John Philipp says
I missed a character arc for you or your knee. Perhaps that was because I was laughing so hard. : )
Robert Balentine Jr. says
Great ending, Dart.
Veronique Aglat says
I enjoyed this story a lot! Thanks!
Ruth Mannino says
I want to know why the cub scouts expelled you! Lol! Thanks for the laugh!
Kim Taylor Clark says
Oh my goodness, I need to consult my warranty too!! Great idea. Made me laugh! Thank you
Valli Henry-Boldini says
Very clever tale…well done… I enjoyed the fantasy…
Hilarious, relevant and masterfully penned, Howard!
Once I crossed 60, unwanted calls increased dramatically. It was the bane of my existence until I finally got a robocall screening app. Take THAT vehicle warranty telemarketers!?
Deanna Salser says
That was very good.
