Timely Advice

by Bill Schott

Nooboo looked at the spaghetti on the plate. It was steaming, covered with tomato sauce and grated cheese. There was a fork on one side of the dish and a spoon sat on the other.

Across the table a person suddenly appeared who looked just like him, except the person's face was drenched in what looked like blood and entrails.

"I am Nooboo from the future, Nooboo."

"Have you advice for me from the future, Nooboo?"

"Yes. Use the fork."
