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).

This is my letter. Of course, it is all written in fun, so men, please don’t apply. Really!

 

My Funny Valentine

My Dearest Darling,

Tomorrow is Valentine's Day and will be, or would have been, our 65th Wedding Anniversary. Every year at this time of year, I reminisce about the 51 wonderful years we had together. (Rather, 51 wonderful years we would have had together if I had not caught you sleeping with that slut woman! And right under my nose, you dog!). And, every year, at this time of year, I write you a letter. Tomorrow, I will place this letter with all the other letters, with your remains.

Remember darling how much in love we were when we got married? (Yes, I know daddy told you to marry me or else he would give you a job at the car lot?). But you told me you loved me and I certainly loved you because I was pregnant. (Don't you remember telling me that if I loved you I would sleep with oh, nevermind).

Oh that wonderful day when little John was born. He was such a beautiful baby. (Yes, I know you said he looked just like Frankie, your best friend you). And he was such a good little boy. (Except for the time he peed all over your shoes in the closet and set your pants on fire). But you took it well (after you screamed at him you were going to KILL punish him).

Next came our little girl, Cheryl and another little boy, Charles. You loved being their father and would give them piggy back rides (after I stole your car keys so you couldn't leave).

Now the kids have all grown up and moved away. I know you said you wouldn't would miss them. I miss them too. They still don't know you have passed away. I lied to told them you ran off with that slut other woman and I haven't seen hide nor hair of you.

Little do they know you are just a worthless bag of bones in the attic along with a bunch of hateful loving letters.

Lovingly,

Your Funny Valentine

Your Crazy Wife

Roundup of Stars!

Day 23 of zerotohero challenge asks us to do a “roundup” of some of our favorite blogs. I think I have already been doing that lately, but I am eagerly ready to share some links to posts that that I have enjoyed reading. Hopefully, you will check them out and you will like them as much as I do.

Now, who doesn't love a “good ol' boy” redneck? I certainly do! After all, the word reckneck makes me think of a tough ol' guy that is harsh, determined, narrow minded, and satirically funny. In fact, the title of this post gave me the creeps, causing me to enter very cautiously into his post's dark chamber door. (Seriously, who wants to read a story about DEATH, for heaven's sake?!)

(Redneck) Death Notice from Imagine. How funny can you make a story about running from the “Grim Reaper,” while shopping in Walmart? You will find out when you read this beloved writer's story. Please, check it out!

By the way, if you are a “Hogwartsians” you can send her a message by owl.

For Not Everyone, is from the blog, “Hey Sparky! What Time Is It? Through her words, she weaves the truth of God's love for us and through His love He shines His precious grace upon us.

May I Have Your Attention Please?

So, please check it out and if you are interested, participate. I think it will be fun, interesting, and help us get to know one another better.

Another Star in Blogland! Update!!

Sorry, I had put the wrong url to link to his blog. Please try it now.

For your reading pleasure, I am introducing a blog that I have been reading and enjoying.

This blog is about a young man's experiences of “life after college.” (And during college and before college…) His writing is fresh, brilliant, and funny. I asked him to describe his blog:

The Brantley Blog: In the eyes of the law, we reach adulthood the day we turn 18 years old. God help anyone who actually believes that. One guy's embarrassing tales of learning things the hard way on the way to becoming a grown up.”

In my opinon it is much more than that. His “Brantleyisms” (and disclaimers) are personal quotes drawn from his “young male living life” wisdom. His posts are a mixture of humor and his exploration of deeper thoughts. In his words, “I'm not exactly sure where blogging will take me. I just hope that it's somewhere just as enriching and enjoyable as the path I've traveled so far.”


Please check out his blog:

Wonderful Blogs

There are some very lovely blogs in WordPress. I would like to introduce you to some wonderful blogs and I hope you will enjoy them as much as I do. (In case you have not yet read their posts).

Instead of describing the blog of the first blogger I want to introduce, I will use her own words because I would not be able to describe it better:

“The most powerful joy, freedom, and purpose are found not on any mountaintop. They're found while lying face-down in the valley of grief, when all is lost. There, we find our Creator and our soul. And the joy found in that moment changes us so truly, that we might never want to leave the valley again…” ~Lori Lara~

http://lorilara.com

I have introduced this blogger before but I did not give a description of her blog. I asked her to describe her blog and this is what she said, “Random ramblings from a renewed mind.” However, I would like to describe her blog further. She is a wife and a mother of four children. Her posts are fresh, sometimes humorous, and always about her deep and imaginative thinking. She quickly captures the hearts of her readers:

http://talesfromaslightlystressedmother.wordpress.com

This blogger is an artist and her blog is filled with her beautiful paintings and wonderful photographs. Her writing is always interesting and beautifully written. She has a magical and endearing way of capturing the hearts of her readers:

http://artourway.wordpress.com

Through honesty and openness about her life, her imagination, and her photographs, this blog writer captures the hearts of her readers and pulls them into her reality in a very endearing way. Her posts are sometimes humorous, sometimes reflective, and always refreshing as she writes about her life, her feelings and her surroundings.

http://quietdesperation.wordpress.com

Joy takes us through her life of living with intense pain from fibroid adhesions. She describes her daily life of living with pain and teaches her readers exactly what adhesions are. She is a strong person with a kind and loving heart. She teaches us about “silent” diseases and of the battles of which their sufferers must endure. Her honesty endears her readers to her and to her writing.

My descriptions of these blogs do not do these writers enough justice, therefore, I hope you will find out for yourselves.

I will continue to surf through WordPress blogs and introduce you to blogs that I find enjoyable reading.
