100 words for Chuck Wendig's prompt based on 3 words out of the five (enzyme, ivy, blister Bishop, lollipop) for his #fridayflash fiction challenge: see it here at his Terrible Minds blog.  This time the winner gets a copy of his Irregular Creatures short stories. 

"I only licked it once. Why did I get a blister on my tongue?” Jake’s tongue was ruby-red.

“You know, it’s the enzyme.”  Carlton’s wireframes slipped down his unctuous nose.

“What enzyme?”

“Oh, c’mon, don’t act stupid, Jake, you’re the biology major.”

“You mean you made the lollipop with poison ivy extract, and you’re testing it on me?”  Jake felt a surge in his bowels like the runs would hit him faster than the blister.  He ran, sat, shat and listened to Carlton’s wicked laughter.

“The greasy creep,” Jake hissed.  He made this for Audrey, I have to warn her.”
