She could take over the world.

"Hmm, I don't like that", grumbles Robert. He's the oldest people in the room. Pushing 60. Maybe more. He's got a lot of baggage, anyone can tell. Plus, he's always packing heat, so he gets a lot of respect. He stands up and looks around as he continues.

"I don't like the idea of Maddie taking over the world with her demon spawns. That can't be right. You know it... hum... it was MY resolution. Mine. I decided that, no matter what, this year, I wouldn't try to take over the world. So, you gotta understand that I'll be damned if I let someone else do it. Right?"

Suddenly, Robert can't make eye contact with anyone. They're all busy looking at their shoes.

"Oh" Maddie spurts out, timidly. "I  do. I... I really do. Sorry. Well, actually, it's not like I could to any of these things anyway, you know? I'm not the one with the freak uterus. I... I was just daydreaming."

"I think we should enslave the little buggers" says with a hard voice a lanky dude who had barely uttered a word since he had first started to attend these meetings, some eight months ago. He looks decided. "They could build pyramids and malls for us. What about, huh?"

The End
