Ten Quote Tuesday Writing Prompt

Ten Quote Tuesday – Writing prompt: write a scene with a sports ticket, candle, discouragement, and drawing.

I thought I would have a little fun with this. Hope you enjoy. :o)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Adam stomped into the kitchen, throwing the tickets to tonight’s football game on the dining room table. His body movements alone assured me he was angry. The candle flame flickered widely from the moving air in the room and one of the wings of the bird on my ink drawing was ruined when he plopped down at the table and jarring it.


“Damn Adam! Look what you made me do!” I shouted, watching the flame on the candle flicker even more.


“What the hell is your problem?” He croaked, tapping his foot incessantly moving the table top. The air in the room becoming noticeably thicker.


“You messed up my drawing you birdbrain!” I shouted with livid anger.

Then he started laughing; I jump up, grab the largest butcher knife in the kitchen. Just as I was aiming for him, there was a shout,


“Stop stop stop! We are cutting this part of the scene.”


“Oh hell!” I spit, “This was my favorite part,” throwing the knife at the director and laughing as I watched the rubber prop bounce off his head.

 

My Dream Letter

Dear Potential Future Husband,

I know you are reading this at this moment and you are looking for me. I am the woman of your dreams. Just ask my ex-husband. On second thought… DON’T.

For your information I will NOT do these tasks:

– I will not pick up your dirty underwear off of the floor. Please be advised if you throw it on the floor it will stay there. Make sure when you throw your underwear that it doesn’t stick to the wall. This could be bad.

– I will not put the cap back on the toothpaste for you. Make sure you do this every time you brush your teeth. Oh, and while you are at it, clean the @$ sink! I will NOT clean the sink after you have shaved or brushed your teeth.

These will be your duties:

– Put your dirty clothes in the laundry basket and on Saturday, take the clothes out of the laundry basket and put them into the washing machine. After the washing is finished, you put the wet clothes in the dryer. When they are dry, you F-O-L-D them and put them where they belong.

– Cooking. When you get home from work in the evenings, you will cook our dinner and then clean the dishes after the meal.

– Saturdays are the days you will clean the house. Every inch of it. If you insist, I will get you a Swiffer Sweeper. Be sure to empty the dust out of the vacumn cleaner after you have used it. And when you do, please do NOT get the dust all over the place.

In return:

– I will be nice to you and treat you respectfully.

– I will give you an allowance from your paycheck.

– You can go out with the “boys” one night a month but you must be home by 11:00pm.

For those interested, please apply within.

(Do not ask about sex. THAT is NOT in this contract).

Strangeville

I just finished reading a delightful book, titled, “Strangeville,” by Kenneth Tingle.


Young John has lost his parents to tragedy and finds himself alone and in a dead-end job. He is on his way to commit suicide but finds that he has to “take a crap” first. He worries that if he kills himself, this bodily function will automatically happen and all the creatures of the forest would then come and eat his body. So, he changes his mind and goes back home.


His aunt, who has not talked to him in ten years calls him and invites him to come stay with them. He is happy to take their offer and sets out on a road trip to their home.


Along the way, John becomes lost and ends up in a town called Strangeville. This town is something “somewhat” similar to the lost city of Atlantis. Except this town is not only “off the grid” but is frozen in time. The 1950's to be exact. And the residents have no idea there is an “outside world” out there very different from their own.


Strangeville has a strange and hilarious way of conquering John's desire to die.


All those hillbilly's and hicks in this novel will capture your heart and your imagination as you are taken on a trip through Strangeville – the “Twilight Zone.”


I give this book five stars because I loved every minute of it.
