SHE Got What HE Gave Her…

She’s the one for the next dance.

He thought as he drove his truck toward the side of the road.

She displays a slight smile as I approach.
She displayed a slight smile as he approached. 

He smiled, knowingly, as the music screamed out through the open windows.

She changes her face into a glow as I extend my hand.
She changed her face into a glow as he extended his hand.

He could picture the outcome as he sounded the horn.

She graciously engages my offered frame.
She graciously engaged his offered frame.

He knew she was expecting to be picked up.

She transforms my leads into beautiful motions.
She transformed his leads into beautiful motions.

He slowed as she lifted her shopping bags, no rush, he thought.

She glides the floor with grace and elegance.
She glided the floor with grace and elegance.

He said aloud, “All the more perfect!”

She makes me feel like the king of the ballroom.
She made him feel like the king of the ballroom.

He knew, however, he was nothing of the sort.

She smiles in appreciation as the music ends.
She smiled in appreciation as the music ended.

He wanted to savour the reaction without any other external noise.

She is the one.

He laughed, as he drove through the puddle of water by the bus stop, totally drenching her… her screams faded as he sped away.

I’m still operating on reduced power, but wanted to participate in this blogging challenge originated by Frank over at A Frank Angle.

Frank’s challenge is to write a sentence to follow on from a first sentence written by Frank, and then all combinations make up a story. I had to amend the context of Frank’s words just a little so that they would work with my ideas. I think it works.

KEY – This is to ensure that the above story does make (at least a little) sense.

This colour indicates Frank’s original sentence.
This colour is my amended version of Frank’s sentence.
This colour is my reaction to the previous sentence.

It was fun to write, although it highlights a particular devilish side of humanity that tends to crop up from time to time… although when it happens when I’m driving, it is entirely by accident. Honest!!! (Not that I have ever driven a truck, I must add!)

Visit Frank’s site for more entries to his challenge… or have a go for yourself. Further details are on his site.

Slightly Spooky Totally Silly Limerick 3: Dazed and Confused

The zombie strode forth in a daze
Too slow to really give chase
So it stopped and thought
Pondering nought
Then fell to the ground in a haze

The zombie strode forth in a daze
Too slow to really give chase
So it stopped and thought
Pondering nought
Then groaned ahead on its way

The zombie strode forth in a daze
Too slow to really give chase
So it stopped and thought
Pondering nought


The Slightly Spooky Challenge!

The third Slightly Spooky Totally Silly Limerick above is complete, but in a way it may also not be. The challenge? Simply add your own last line (to this piece of nonsense) in the comments below.

Obviously, there’s no prize on offer… ‘tis just for fun to get those creative juices flowing, stirring and simmering… and shrieking, of course.

Pinky and Perky

Presenting Pinky and Perky (not their real names*)

Always minding their own business and never minding each other, perching apart just enough from each other yet close enough to appear together at the same time, providing a united front, their body language provides a few clues about their relationship.

Pinky holds a higher authority, and Perky is subservient.

Pinky is alert and Perky aloof.

Pinky wants freedom and Perky is happy as is.

Pinky is wide awake and Perky is sound asleep.

Pinky can’t stand Perky’s snoring.

Perky can’t stand Pinky’s whining.

Pinky blames Perky for getting them both locked outside of their cage.

Pinky wouldn’t listen when Perky said they were still locked inside the run.

Pinky couldn’t settle on top of the cage, Perky was most comfortable.

Pinky had internal ruffled feathers, Perky just went with the flow.

I’m just going with the flow as well. Posting the occasional #InThePink post for Becky’s September Squares challenge (the link above will take you to many more pink-themed pics), and having fun doing so!

*I was contemplating pixelating Pinky and Perky’s faces for this post, but that would have hidden their perfect expressions. And besides, their noms de plume protect their identities perfectly.

Clear the Mind; Soothe the Soul

Clear thoughts
In a clear head
Soothe the soul
It must be said
See the clarity
Filled with light
Negativity
Out of sight

I’m just casting aside negativity today.

I’m casting a Feel Good spell.

For the good of all… obviously.

And if you don’t like it

I hope the spell works quicker.

A spell for Six Word Saturday. And a clear sky with fading pink clouds for #InThePink. Just because. And links for both are below.

Let’s bring on the positivity, yes? YES!!!
