Crimson Creative Challenge #45- Windmills

Windmills

Windmills in my head

Blowing the air in my hair this way and that

Wild ideas seldom making sense

But I am riding on my imaginary stead

Recklessly through the bush and bramble

Dislodging the fact and stories alike

Like husk falling from the grain

No need to lay thoughts sunder

I am sure to scatter them all across the table

Hey, wait a nebulous idea has just been born

In this jumbled up brain of mine

The fissures running through the reality

Bring the fascinating new thought to fore

I love when my mind goes on a bender

That’s when I get the best of my ideas

In addition to CCC I have included the following prompts in this post;

Wordle #150

1. Find Out✔️
2. 100 Yards✔️
3. Slubber (to perform hastily or carelessly)✔️
4. Rarefied✔️
5. Slip✔️
6. North✔️
7. Buy✔️
8. Shoes✔️

~*~

When a slubber, buys the shoes for you, you will find out within a 100 yards the mistake in trusting them with this purchase. The shoes are going to kill your feet before that rarefied party you were going to attend on Saturday. And you won’t be able to brag about them to anyone. Better slip them off, and toss them north. Make a rule not to entrust shoe shopping to someone else.

Fibbing Friday September 13-2019

As today is Friday the 13th, there may be some superstitious referrals here, or maybe you’d like to consider your answers to reflect that accordingly. Whatever your preference, tell your porkies and have fun!
So, here are your questions for today:

1. If flower seeds give us flowers and tomato seeds give us tomatoes, what does bird seed give us?

Birds, what else. You can sow them in your backyard and get a healthy crop of whatever breed of birds you desire. I personally like Robins.


2. How do you make a cat flap?

This is going to be messy, I must warn you beforehand. Take a cat and measure it’s height. Then take a door, any door and cut it into a hole. Now you have a cat flap.


3. Why is Friday 13th considered unlucky?

You’ve got it reversed. Friday the 13th considers all other days and dates unlucky because if it weren’t for them every day would be Friday the 13th.


4. When is the Witching Hour?

There is no fixed time of the day or night. It is whenever the brew is brewed!


5. Are familiars always cats?

I think cats are the least familiar of the animals. They often pretend not to know you at all! How about a garden gnome as a familiar?


6. Where did McDonald’s originate?

In the farm. With all the pigs, cow and horses etc.


7. What was the first thing Sleeping Beauty said when roused from sleep by her prince?

“Not you again”

“Why can’t it be a sensible and practical man who awakens me. I am fed up of empty headed princes”


8. What’s the difference between a sink and a basin?

Sink is a verb and it mean what the politicians are doing to our country. Basin is a big bowl. Sometimes it’s big enough to fit a sea in it.


9. Why does the wind howl?

Some thing has to join in with the wolves. They feel lonely howling by themselves.


10. Why do we say swinging the lead?

When we don’t want to say that you’re faking it.

Three Line Tales Week #189

Welcome to Week 189 of Three Line Tales.

three line tales, week 189: a cat peeking out of a cardboard boxphoto by Eberhard Grossgasteiger via Unsplash

~*~

It was a surprise for Mathew.

Mom tiptoed and left the crate with the kitten in front of his room so that he would see his birthday present as soon as he woke up and came out of his bedroom.

But the kitten had other ideas, and it took the whole family to find him from where he was hiding, in the attic.

Spicy Tacos!!!

One serving of spicy tacos

Leaves me wanting more

It’s not just happenstance

That I have to battle with my weight

I wish I was aloof and disinterested

In good food, giving it a wide berth

My mind would not notify me of its presence

Instead of lusting after all those flavors

Which enchant me, beckon to me

And in the end make me lose control

Of all my planned diets and resolves

The Daily Four

Season 1 – Game 3

Question Fun Directory

Welcome to The Daily Four!

Today’s Questions to the Readers are….

Do you have any friends from your school days and if so how often do you socialise with them?

I have friends from school days, that is one which were with me till high school, and then there are those from med school. I have wonderful friendship with them and though we don’t get together very often as we all live in different parts of the country and a few of them are in other countries. But whenever we get a chance to meet, it’s as if no time has passed since the last time we got together. It’s always a pleasure to meet them.

Do you find it difficult to admit that you are wrong, and why?

Me wrong? Well if it is proved beyond a doubt that I was wrong, I will own up to it! Well jokes aside I am usually the first one to admit when I make a mistake or a wrong judgment call. Because I don’t suffer from an excess of ego.

What was the title of the first movie you watched in a movie theater?

I can’t recall with ease the last movie I watched and you’re asking if I remember the first one that I watched! It is impossible to remember that. But I know the one which left a deep impact on me and that was Ben Hur! I really was impressed with that movie and I guess I was in sixth grade when I saw it. It was a special re-release of the classic movie.

What was the most awkward thing that you’ve done for a friend?

This is going to be a long story! An edited version is posted here;

A few of my friends played a prank and were called to the hostel warden’s office. I had to lie through my teeth to support their false statements. It was both awkward and embarrassing thing I have done for my friends. Later on we had such fun recalling that incident. Luckily they were not required to under go any disciplinary action.

A word to the wise

The old man felt himself qualified to give

The young man a piece of advice

My dear boy, said he to the young man

I have spent my life in this world

Learned a lot from my experiences

So it would be better for you to listen

To the words of wisdom I am imparting

Never swim in the nude in a lake full of piranhas

If you want to stay alive, be careful of the sharks

Don’t disturb the ants in the hill by sitting on it

He was going to add a few more home truths

When he was rudely interrupted

By that young man on the other end

I have had enough of your clichéd advice old man

I am a man of the world myself and not a babé

So keep your words for someone who

Needs them or appreciates them

He was going to walk away strutting

But unfortunately he tripped over his own feet

Landing in the dirt face down!

Only just that!

The contestant was trying hard to make his views known

I want to clarify this misunderstanding

We stand for a liberal view on live and let live

I will ameliorate the working conditions with reforms

Only judicious use of force will be recommended

When people will deviate from our laid out rules

We need to maintain the zen attitude

And promote our superiority among the human race

Only just that!

A letter

Dear Sir/ Madam

With our sincere apology, we want to rectify

Our mistake in letting you think that you were

The winner of today’s competition

But we had to scrap that event and the award

Though it is wicked on our part but unfortunately

We have little choice in this matter

The company who were going to sponsor

Your free stay and travel on this giveaway vacation

Has gone bankrupt and we are left sadly bereft

Of any means to provide you the treat that was promised

yours in apology!

Word Art (4)

Disdain✔️
Eat✔️
Lead✔️
Cushion✔️
Sister✔️
Hug✔️
Mold✔️
Omphaloskepsis (navel-gazing is contemplation of one’s navel as an aid to meditation)✔️
Bittersweet✔️
Trend✔️
Freeze✔️
Paper Airplane✔️

“Mom, what is the baby doing? ”

“He is practicing Omphaloskepsis” mom was grinning with amusement. “What is that?” she asked with disdain. Julie was twelve and thought she knew all there was to know. ” It’s a way of meditation, when a person gazes at their navel to get wise” mom was happy that she had looked up this phenomenon on the net. It was worth seeing that expression on her daughter’s face.

“Now be a good sister and put that cushion behind him so he doesn’t topple back”

Julie got up to do just that when she stepped on a playdoh mould and uttered a loud yelp. Mom grabbed some ice from the freezer and after giving her a hug, gently rubbed it on Julie’s foot. “Let’s eat dinner now” she said as she lead the kids to the dining area.

This incident had stirred up bittersweet memories of her own childhood. To stop this trend of her thoughts, she folded a paper napkin into a paper airplane and shot it into the air. Both the kids were delighted.
