Wordy Wednesday

Once again while everyone else is wordless, I have made the choice to be wordy. Sit back and enjoy the ramblings. The light snow fall and freezing temperatures make it ideal to cuddle up under a warm blanket with a hot cup of your pleasure.

I am not answering emails at the moment unless they are associated with my child. I am taking the time to decompress while the weather permits the feel of hibernation. I would be taking the time to think and begin planning for next year. 

The baby has the rest of this week and two days next week before she is out for Thanksgiving. I am hoping that she is not out of school for a week or so at a time because of snow like she was last year. The snow fall is starting earlier here than it did on the mountain last year.

Isolation

We are virtually isolated in our corner of the complex. No one can say they were just walking by and invade my privacy. It is rather nice, though the walls are a bit thin. 

The power outage yesterday was an hour shorter than expected. It wasn't the lack of heat that bothered me but the interruption to my television show. I checked up on an acquaintance that has deep scars and arthritis which makes the cold rather painful for them. I tried to be their friend, but it doesn't look as if that is going to work out.

Well, it seems that I am not as wordy as I thought when I first began this post. See you next time, and stay warm in the meantime.

Left

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?”
“Yes.”
“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.
