From the prompts I asked my readers to give me, is this one from Turkey Lurkey:
You are riding home from school in a school bus. You look out of the window and notice something very odd. A two headed cow. Something else appears... a tractor floating five feet in the air. What happens next?
The vinyl was sticky under my bare, sweaty legs. Oh, how I wished a cool breeze would gust through my open window, there at the back of the bus. It seemed I was stuck in a pocket of stale, humid air.
Ignoring the chattering voices around me, I placed my forehead against the cool glass of the window, hoping for a respite from the heat. My gaze fell on the passing cattle field, and I began counting the heifers in twos. Two... four... six...
Something caught my eye.
"What?" I whispered to my reflection.
I leaned as close to the window as I could, nose pressing against the glass, and squinted my near-sighted eyes.
"I don't believe it," I said to no one but myself. "That cow has two heads."
I knew it was possible; I'd seen pictures, heard stories. But never had I seen one with my own eyes. I wondered if the farmer knew. He should be calling the news station. Maybe I'd call the news station. I'd tell them--
Wait. "What the... ?"
I rubbed my eyes, sure they were playing tricks on me. But when I looked to the field once more, it was still there. An old John Deere - hovering mid-air. No driver. No explanation. But there it hung, as if suspended by unseen cables.
Maybe the heat's worse than I think, I thought, swiping at my wet brow with the back of my hand.
I craned my neck, keeping my eyes on the tractor as the bus drove on.
A deep voice interrupted my thoughts. But I couldn't make my head turn, to find the voice. Too fascinated by the things I'd just seen.
I felt the shaking of my shoulder. "Sam? Sam, wake up."
The motion gave me a jolt, and I realized the bus driver was standing over me.
"You fell asleep," Bus Driver Bob said. "You're home now."
A disbelieving look out the window proved him right; I was looking down the length of my gravel driveway, at the end of which sat my house, waiting.
"Sorry," I mumbled in a groggy voice. I gathered my things and shuffled from the bus, trying to shake remnants of the surreal dream from my mind...
