A Penitent by John von Daler


The following punishment was meted out by the authorities and subsequently transcribed two hundred times by a delinquent writer incarcerated at a top security Writers Correction Facility, the so-called Ballpoint Penitentiary:

I promise to write laugh out loud, as soon as possible, and oh, my God without abbreviation.
I promise to write laugh out loud, as soon as possible, and oh, my God without abbreviation.
I promise to write laugh out loud, as soon as possible, and oh, my God without abbreviation.
I promise to write laugh out loud, as soon as possible, and oh, my God without abbreviation.
I promise to write laugh out loud, as soon as possible, and oh, my God without abbreviation.
I promise to write laugh out loud, as soon as possible, and oh, my God without abbreviation.
I promise to write laugh out loud, as soon as possible, and oh, my God without abbreviation.
I promise to write laugh out loud, as soon as possible, and oh, my God without abbreviation.
I promise to write laugh out loud, as soon as possible, and oh, my God without abbreviation.
I promise to write laugh out loud, as soon as possible, and oh, my God without abbreviation.
I promise to write laugh out loud, as soon as possible, and oh, my God without abbreviation.
I promise to write laugh out loud, as soon as possible, and oh, my God without abbreviation.
I promise to write laugh out loud, as soon as possible, and oh, my God without abbreviation.
I promise to write laugh out loud, as soon as possible, and oh, my God without abbreviation.
I promise to write laugh out loud, as soon as possible, and oh, my God without abbreviation.
I promise to write laugh out loud, as soon as possible, and oh, my God without abbreviation.
This punishment has been reproduced here just sixteen times to save space and time. We don't mess around even if we do write slow.
