I am Darryl’s Liver – Benjamin Allmon
1600 words Humour
When Darryl loses his job and girlfriend and subsequently hits the bottle, it’s bad news for the eponymous liver, who must hatch a plan to save his owner and stave off the unseemliness – not to mention indignity – of cirrhosis. Will he succeed in his quest?
Monday… I am Darryl’s liver. I’ve been with Darryl from the start, naturally, and I like to think that I do a good job. I’m his largest organ, which means I can usually get away with bullying the pancreas and kidneys if I so choose. I don’t like to throw my weight around, but every so often it is necessary. The pancreas, especially, forgets who’s in charge around here.
