Saturday Evening Post

This day has been one that was pleasantly unexpected. The beginning was rough but the end is peaceful. Let's chat.

I woke up to Shorty telling me she needed changing, her stomach is acting up again and the amount of foods she will eat is once again limited. This challenge is something we are taking in stride.

She went outside to play leaving me napping on the couch. She never left the premise or the front, my neighbors would have told me. She rode her bike. She came back in and left the door wide open, not a pleasant surprise to wake up to.

Instead of taking over the television like she typically does she put it on the Saturday marathon of "Criminal Minds" for me. She even changed it back when I asked if she wanted to watch "Jane and the Dragon." 

I managed some cleaning, and she has had a blast all day. I have spoken to friends that are actually loyal making them family. I have weeded out more of those that are not what they seem. It is nice to see my instincts turning themselves back on.

Until next time, may you enjoy the week. The highlight of mine was school being back in session after the ice and snow that we have had during the previous week. They are still deciding how the children will make up the missed days.

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.
