Christmas Vacation

Christmas Vacation has started and it is proving to be rather interesting to say the least. Sit back and relax while I fill you in.

I decided to open my computer after a week or more of having it closed and using just my phone for Internet communication. There are some things I was supposed to be doing so I will be attempting to get them done during the few days left before Christmas.

Last night I  dictated my youngest letter to father Christmas. It was interesting; this year she is aware that the holiday is coming, and she is excited about it. Seeing it through her innocent eyes has made the season rather interesting.

Is it snowing yet?
The baby is looking forward to snow for Christmas; it is her one wish. You see in her eagerness, she correctly asked for all of her presents one by one until she got to open them all. (Save the one she does not know about and the gifts others have gotten her.)

You see I waited so long for her to speak that I could not resist the cuteness and sweetness in her voice as she asked the grammatically correct questions to get what she wanted. The biggest surprise of all came when she willingly put on gloves and a coat so she could go check for snow. 

It is nice to see my baby girl so happy after all of the changes the last year has brought to us. We are looking forward to the new year, and whatever it may bring.

Hope your holidays are filled with love and laughter.

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.
