Friday Fictioneers – The Kit

If I could buy a kit to make a dog or a cat, how many parts would it contain? That question had obsessed him since he was a kid.

“Simon’s always taking things apart and putting them back together again,” his Dad liked to tell anyone who’d listen.

The boy’s interest in the family jalopy soon palled. You could disassemble a bike or a car and rebuild it. But, he soon discovered, that wasn’t possible with a frog. Why not, he wondered?

And so he came to an unusual fork in the road of his life. Surgeon or serial killer?
