The Desert Escape: Run into the desert. There, you’ll meet a snake. Name the snake. Name him Benjamin. Benjamin will bite you, but don’t cry out.
Megan Quinn pretends not to care about such things, but when you call her Dr. Quinn she is secretly pleased. Her short humor fiction has appeared on McSweeney’s, The Belladonna, Little Old Lady, and right here. She’s occasionally on Twitter @mighty_mquinn.
