From the statement below choose the word from the three given to create a story within its context. Compose your response in prose or poetic form.

A funny thing happened on the way to the;



A funny thing to have happened on my to the bedroom

The walls bent out of shape and the door morphed into a hole

The light color of the ceiling became dark

My world was going crazy and I didn’t know

Had I arrived was I about to depart

I came to, after a while I think

Slumped on the floor near the bedroom door

It took me a while to figure out what happened

I had a fainting spell, my sugar level dropping

It did teach me an important lesson

When feeling a bit strange, just to stay put

Better check my blood glucose level first

Before venturing anywhere on my own


This is an actual account that happened a while ago. The purpose of this post is that we should be careful when we are feeling a bit strange or off-kilter. Heed the signals your body is sending!

I have also included Saturday Mix Prompt by Sarah ;

– dark and light (suffix “-ness” may be added)

– arrive and depart

  1. I once passed out while giving a presentation in front of about 300 people. It was partially due to nerves, but mostly due to low blood pressure because I had skipped breakfast that morning.

  2. I’ve passed out, or fainted twice. Once from lack of oxygen visiting Denver when I was a child, and once because if medication… it’s not a good feeling.
    Definitely pay attention to what your body is telling you!
    A great reminder in a lovely form!

  3. I have had a couple of near fainting spells many years ago. It was like tunnel vision with everything growing dimmer and sounds were muffled. Luckily I was able to sit down each time and not fall down. Never did figure out why it happened.
