Drama is Not Limited to the Stage

There was a time when we thought of drama as something that was limited to stage and screen. We were children, as adults we learn that drama is not only in the real world but there are those that create it out of boredom it seems.

The thoughts of neighbors helping neighbors is one that is often unheard of today. It seems there are often strings attached that are not exposed until everything is said and done. It is rather fucking stupid disturbing to see someone do something that was thought to be a nice gesture to later discover it was merely something they expected something in return for. 

Loans are traditionally repaid however they are also traditionally made clear they are loans that require repayment upfront. Otherwise it is a gift but there are those that decide after the fact that it is a loan. This would make them not worth the time as they begin to spread rumors about those that thought they were doing them a kindness without expecting anything in return. 

The things that people do will never cease to amaze me. 

When you do something for people is a gift or something you expect to be repaid? Do you make your intentions clear before hand or do you wait until after the fact? What do you think about people that appear to be giving only to turn around and ask for something in return?

The statue was becoming discolored from the rain, green and blue blotches were everywhere. Frustration was taking its toll on the artist as he tried to match the original color with only an ounce left in the can. The feedback on the original concept had been mixed at best and now the rains had left him with a disaster threatening his career.
What is the statue of? Why is the discoloration causing the creator so much concern?

Hot Flash!

“No, it’s too hot.”
“You’re delusional, it’s fine.”
“Not it’s too hot.”
“It’s a tub of ice. It is a reach to say it is hot.”
She walked away and left him sitting there to think about what he was actually trying to say.

Flash in the Pan: Regress

Up, down, right, left.
The motion was making his hands numb but he was determined beat the game once and for all. The idea that he could not make it to the end of the level by the time they called him to dinner was unacceptable.
“Is that all he does all day, at 40?”
“What caused him to regress?”
“He knows he’s dying.”
What is he dying from would cause him to regress? Is he actually regressing or simply in denial?
The word is regress, this piece comes in at 65 of the 75 word limit. For the official rules visit the M3 blog and join in the fun.
