Abandon – Tuesday Use It In A Sentence #tuesdayuseitinasentence

Having wandered down the long, lonely path for so long that he’d lost track of time, when Dan finally spotted a gate looming ahead of him, he ran toward it with reckless abandon, never noticing the sign above it that read, “Abandon all hope, ye who enter here”.

A Cat In Brazil – National Limerick Day #LimerickDay #poetry

Seeing as today is #LimerickDay, I thought I would share a silly limerick I wrote a long time ago when I was a kid.

 

There once was cat in Brazil

Who smelled chicken cooking on a grill.

He jumped and landed on the roof,

With an “oof”,

Slid down, and missed the grill.

Friendship – Tuesday Use It In A Sentence #tuesdsayuseitinasentence

After promising to meet Elaine at the college library again the next day to study for exams, Jared stood outside the door and watched her walk away, wishing once again that he had the courage to tell her how he really felt about her, but he was afraid it would ruin the close friendship they’d had since they were kids.

Haha! Glad I’m not that bad. Only #1 really bothers me, though the change in cover designs does sometimes irk a little.

Apparent – Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS

socs-badge-2015

 

 

A little boy is out walking with his mother in the park. He stops walking and tugs on her sleeve to get her attention.

“Mama, what’s that?” he asks.

“What’s what, honey?”

He points ahead of him. “That.”

She looks and sees a baby duck a little ways ahead of them, looking lost. “That’s a baby duck, and it seems lost. I think it’s looking for its parents.”

“But that doesn’t look like a duck to me.”

“Huh? What do you mean?”

“That, Mama.”

She looks again, following the direction of his finger, which is pointing not towards the ground but more towards the sky…and the big round metal thing with flashing lights that was hovering over the trees.

Her mouth drops open. “I think that’s a UFO, honey,” she finally says.”Apparently, there really are such things as aliens, after all.”

*     *    *

“Mother, what’s that?” the little alien asks, pointing at the video of a woman and child on the view screen.

The alien mother looks at the view screen. “That’s a parent and child, dear. And apparently, there really are such things as humans, after all.”

Jaded – Tuesday Use It In A Sentence #tuesdayuseitinasentence

Tired of feeling like Aerosmith’s song Jaded was the soundtrack of her life, Jade decided the only way to stop feeling jaded by her repeated failed romantic relationships and her stagnant life, in general, was to just move away and start over. So she packed her bag and headed for the bus station.
