FFfAW-True Love?

Adam asked me to meet him for coffee and I gladly did so. I was happy because I thought that meant that he was sweet on me as I certainly was sweet on him.

My hopes were up. Finally! He has noticed me. It was about time!

As soon as I sat down I noticed his sad face.

“What's wrong, Adam?”

Claudia has left me.”

My heart sank. (Who was Claudia?)

“Will you help me get her back?”

(What was I suppose to say? Sure I will!?)

“Hell No!” I answered.

I then got up and quickly walked out.

FFfAW – Life

I sat in the waiting room staring at a picture hanging on the wall. It seemed so dark and dismal to me. I asked myself, “Why would they put such a dark picture on the wall of a hospital?”

My mother was in surgery and we waited impatiently for any news from the doctor. It felt like waiting for paint to dry.

Then it occurred to me. Of course! Everyone has dark moments in life and coming through those dark times makes us a better person. The picture stopped troubling me at that point.

Suddenly the doctor walked in,

“She is going to be okay,” he said, smiling.

FFfAW – She Can’t Sing

My mother thinks she can sing. My dad plays the piano while she “sings.” I have to close my ears. My dad told me to stop doing that because it will upset mother.

My dad placates to her and expects me to do the same thing. We have to make mother think she can sing.

She tells us when she gets good enough she is going to try and find a job as a singer.

Let's hope she will finally get good enough. Until then, I am wearing ear plugs!

FFfAW-The Accident

I was anxious to get to the concert before it got too crowded. Because I knew I was in a hurry I was careful not to go over the speed limit.

The car came up behind me quickly. They definitely were in a hurry. They must be going to the same concert. Suddenly, they were right on my tail. It made me nervous. What if the car in front of me slammed on his brakes?

He not only is right on my tail, he is trying to pass me and the cars are coming from the other direction. My hands grip the steering wheel even tighter.

Suddenly, he passed. I wanted to close my eyes and not see what was surely going to happen. It was terrible.

I pull over to the side of the road and wait for the state police to arrive. After all, I am a witness.

Goodbye Sweet Friend

My little dog, Bria was coughing and I took her in the Vet on Monday. He diagnosed her with Congential Heart Failure. He put her on a medicine that would help pull the fluid that was building up in her lungs. The next day she got progressively worse. Then suddenly she got better.

But in the late afternoon she started having seizures and she was having them every 10 minutes. I knew it was time to do the only humane thing even though it absolutely broke my heart.

She was euthanized this evening at 6:00 pm.

My sweet friend is at peace now. I know she went over the Rainbow Bridge to meet her friends that are already there and they are running and playing in healthy bodies. This gives me peace and hope that maybe one day I will see her again.

Thank you for listening.

 

FFfAW – Forever Lovers

Randall and Susie were boyfriend and girlfriend. Susie loved going with Randall in his car where they would stop at a local drive-in and get a Coke and fries. Next they would go out to the woods and park where they would smooch for an hour before he had to take her back home.

One day Randall and Susie left to go get a Coke and fries but they never came home. Their parents, friends, and police led an all out search for them for seven days but neither they nor their bodies were ever found…

Until fifty years later. The old rusted car was found among overgrown plant growth with two skeletons in the front seat holding hands. They are forever lovers.

FFfAW – Learning to Play

“Plunk, plunk, plunk”

“Keep practicing!” Mother told me.

“Plunk, plunk, plunk.”

All I could think about was going outside to play with my friends. I didn't want to be practicing on this ol' piano.

I let out a deep sigh and continued to plunk on the piano knowing the song I was playing didn't sound like a song at all. Maybe mother will get tired of listening to this horrible piano playing and let me go outside to play.

“Plunk, plunk, plunk.”

“Alright Roddy, you can go outside to play now.”

Yes!! It worked.
