The Sunday Whirl- A silly rhyme to fit the prompts

Wordle #412

I have seven stories to tell you

Just don’t rain on my parade

I have learned humility quite well

So listen and sit still for me a while

Now where was I before the change

In the topic took the conversation

And the ball of string away from me

Your dinner is about to grow on your plate

So better hurry up and have the story time

Tale Weaver #231- July 11-2019. Making Sense out of Nonsense- Ignormarte

( Ignormarte, the people who had absolutely no idea about the market trends )

Jolly was lucky to win the mega lottery and was now rolling in money. He wanted to spend all his money to live out his dream life. But his mother was more sensible and told him to invest half the money in stock market. Since he was ignormarte, he asked his best friend Jonny to advice him. What he didn’t know that Jonny was not an honest man. He had plans to fleece Jolly and become rich in the process.

Jolly handed half his money to Jonny to invest some place where it would earn good profit. Jonny pretended to invest it while in reality transferring the money to an offshore account. Every month Jolly would ask his friend how the stock was doing and Jonny would give him assurance that the money was earning a decent profit.

Though Jolly was spending his win quite liberally, he had not quite ran through all of it when he got the shock of his life when his best friend bailed out on him with half the money. Jonny disappeared and there was no sign of him. Jolly cursed his ignormatre-ness which had landed him in this mess and promised himself to be more careful of the money he had left, investing it with a reliable Wall Street firm.

While the clever Jonny became a victim of his own greed and lost all the money he had stolen from his friend due to bad investments. It appears that he too was a ignormatre but a cheap one!

Ignormarte

This week I invite you to play with this nonsense word and create your own meaning and story about it.

It can be noun, verb, adjective or adverb, its fate is in your hands.

Write your response and link it using the linking tool below.

Go forth and have fun.

Spider-Man

A post inspired by the new Spider-Man movie!😜

It was a tough time for Spider-Man. He not only had to keep up with his school assignments but also protect his neighborhood from the antics of greedy Kingpin. It was causing a lot of strain on him but he was after all the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. Kingpin was a dangerous criminal and Spider-Man need to be extra vigilant when he was up to his nefarious schemes. Kingpin had the local law officers in his pocket and they would not act against him, always using dilatory tactics so that he was never caught with evidence. So it was the nightly vigil by Spider-Man which kept the people safe from that criminal. Though very few people knew of this great service done by him!

MLMM- Wordle # 141

1. Barking Mad
2. Argue
3. Claw
4. Tumble
5. Granite
6. Pretentious
7. Mutter
8. Office
9. Deceive
10. Press
11. Fluster
12. Immovable

~~~~~~

The exchange was heated.

” Why do you argue with me. Do you think I am barking mad ?”

“It is bad enough when you try to deceive me with your pretentious lies and the false fluster you pretend to feel”.

This was really bad. And Janice couldn’t understand the reason her boss was so angry. The fact that she took a tumble and fell down the granite staircase was the truth. It also broke a claw off the stuffed vulture she was carrying wasn’t her fault. Muttering under her breath, she slammed out of the office just to stop short when she hit an immovable wall. Looking up she saw that she had walked right into the large paper press standing in the corner.

This was the final straw!

The Topic Today Is – To Believe In

A

It’s raining, it’s pouring, you are out in the street and it’s very late seeking shelter and you come across an empty house.  Where upon closer inspection you find you can gain entry – now, would you?

Take advantage of that situation and enter the house

Only Take refuge under the porch

Seek out alternative shelter

In a sane universe, I would just walk on and try to get home. But I am going to play along.

I think I will enter the house.

Should you however have taken shelter inside the house and as you are venturing in you hear a strange and whispering type of moan, not quite ghastloy but disturbing all the same, do you?

Think, ‘Bugger that for a game of soldiers!” and quickly make your escape

Pick up the first thing to hand and venture further in to investigate

Think nothing of it and try to dry yourself off

Of course in this situation, I am going to go and investigate. What else?

As you venture further into the house to investigate the noise, you come across a strange looking door with even stranger symbols upon the frame, do you?

Decide to ignore the door and move on looking for something to dry yourself with

Press down on the handle and venture inwards

Think, ‘Bugger that for a game of soldiers!!” and quickly make your escape

Very boldly ( and stupidly) I will enter the room with strange symbols on the door. (I think it is either cursed or magical)

Upon entering through doorway and into the room, you find yourself encased in the darkest of darks, around you although you can’t see them, you sense figures that wish you harm, but at the end of the room there seems to be a swirling light, almost portal like, do you?

Make a quick dash for the light, irrelevant to where it may lead and jump in

With extreme timidness ask, “is there anyone there?2

Or think, ‘Bugger that for a game of soldiers!!!” and quickly make your escape whilst you can

Like I said this is another universe so I will dash for the portal of light to escape the dark ( brain eating )creatures!

Upon reaching the end of the room, you in fact see that it is NOT one portal, but three in a matter of seconds you must make your decision to jump through one of these portals. Which one do you pick, and why?

A dense but otherwise lush jungle enjoying daylight hours

A darkened hole with nothing but more blackness

A portal within a portal within a portal

Let there be light! I am going to enter the lighted jungle!

~~~~~~~~~~

B

It appears that by taking shelter under the porch may not have been the wisest of choices, for you fear that you are fast becoming wetter than you were out in the rain, do you?

Think, ‘Sod this for a game of soldiers!!!” and quickly make your way towards,

The street, to try and get home as quickly as possible

The garden shed which strangely enough appears to be in the front of the garden

To the house next door, which has lights on despite the unearthly hour

In the true spirit of a horror movie, I will enter the shed which is in the front of the garden.

The garden shed appears to be otherwise dry, but inside the shed is a trapdoor, do you?

Think, “Oh you have got to be kidding me?”

Ignore the trapdoor and stay and wait for the rains to pass before venturing home

Open the trapdoor

Open the trap door! Why not?

Upon opening the trapdoor you discover a ladder leading down into the pits of darkness, but at the bottom you can see a light, do you?

Think, “Oh, no, no, no, no way!” Shut the trapdoor and wait for the rains to pass

Start to climb down the ladder, completely oblivious to where it leads

Look for a weapon and climb down into the darkened shaft

I am acting the oxymoron here so I will blindly descend the ladder oblivious to what may lay at the end!

At the bottom of the shaft you find yourself in a small circle facing three doors, marked A, B and C, which one do you open?

A

B

C

I will open door C, why ? I can’t say.

Inside the Room of door A is what?

Inside the Room of door B is what?

Inside the Room of door C is another door do you open it?

I open the door leading from the first room and enter, blindly and trustingly.

YES

NO

Yesssssss……………………

Upon opening the inner door of Room C, you find one of three options available to you, which one do you take?

A strange portal leading to a portal to a portal

A Trapdoor leading up

A Trapdoor leading down?

This time I am going to take the portal leading to another portal. One should be adventurous and bold! ( in addition to being extremely stupid)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

C

You make your way to next door, it’s 3am in the morning, but the lights are on, so you think?

“i know it’s late, but they are obviously still awake, so it’s worth a shot!”

“You know what l am only about an hour from home, l make my way there!”

“Maybe they have a phone, and l can ring a taxi?”

Maybe they have a phone and I will call a taxi. I really don’t want to use my cell phone in case it gets wet.

Upon ringing the doorbell, the door is opened and astonishingly you find yourself facing three options ….

You, are looking back at you asking for help?

A portal leading to a portal leading to a portal

A trapdoor in the floor

What do you do?

I am looking at myself, asking for help and to use a phone. But the image is reversed as in a mirror.

Finally, in no more than 500 words describe your actions for the night to the policeman who discovers you naked the next morning 100 miles away from where you first started. How did you get to where you are now?

The adventure in the rainy night.

It has been so exhausting to go through all these strange and twisted events that I have lost not only my memory but also my mind. I ask the police man to help me find it and we retrace my actions of last night……… was it last night or was it…….

Anyway I forgot what happened next. I will write the rest of the account after they release me from the mental asylum.

Please take note and do remember THIS post will be reblogged twice daily till the new game so if you respond, either provide a ping back direct to my blog or to the link provided above. Otherwise you’ll probably get a “Oops page can’t be found” message.

Thanks, Rory

Are you sick?

Are you making this ungodly noise

Are you sick? that’s why I can see you

Writhing on the ground as if someone

Is gnawing at your innards or are you

Making a fool of all of pretending to be

In agony and pain so that you can get out of

Playing the little league match you have today

It better not be a sham as we are going to the

Hospital right now and getting a check up

Oh! You are already feeling better are you now!

Stream of Consciousness Saturday July 6/2019

I put on my thinking cap ’cause there is

Much that I need to ponder upon or you can say

There is food for thought, something to chew upon

If I could choose on or the other, I would choose this

But maybe I should buckle up my shoe and take that

This all is a nonsense rhyme so that I can write something

That may make some sense or then maybe it’s total rubbish!

(Added shoe to this silly rhyme as it also rhymes! Just for smiles)

The prompt;

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “chew/choo.” Use one or both, any way you’d like. Have fun!

Question Fun-Silliest Questions

Would you rather have hot fudge or chocolate sauce on your hot fudge sundae?

Yes, definitely hot fudge sauce. And then could I please have an extra topping of hot fudge sauce.

Was the cat in the hat, or was he wearing it?

The bunny was in the hat, not the cat. The cat wears the hat. You should know that!

If you were on Scooby-Doo, would you rather be Daphne or Velma, and why?

I think Velma is the smart one. I would like to be her, if being in a silly cartoon would make me look smart.

Where do you go when you say you’ll be right back?

To grab a quick bite to eat with my besties!

How long will you ‘really’ be gone, when you say you’ll be right back?

A minute?

An hour?

A day?

Infinity time?

Never ever come back?

Infinity!

Why do you say  – “I’ll, be right back”, instead of “I’ll be left back?”

It depends on if you are right handed or left handed. If you’re a lefty you can surely say that you will be left back!

How many pairs of socks do you own that don’t have mates?

Lucky for me, I don’t like to wear socks even in winters. But I have family members who have a lot of single socks. Maybe there is website for them where they can find mates.

If you owned a time machine, would you go backward in time or forward?  And, why?

I am staying put. No tempering with time. No siree ……….

Have you ever just looked at someone and thought to yourself, “They actually thought to themselves… ‘Oh, I look good today.’ and left the house looking as if they just got out of the bed?

That actually is me, who you saw today. I thought that I was looking particularly dashing today. But I was not looking at the mirror but at a framed photo of myself from fifteen years ago.

Why does the watch not tell us time?

They unfortunately don’t talk. We have to look it up ourselves.

What is the name of the colour of unripe bananas?

A muddy greeny yellowy color.

Do you take your dog for a walk or does it takes you for a walk?

Most of the time the dog does. Sometimes I feel masterful and tell it that I don’t want to go for a walk today! And you know what? It works sometimes.

What happens when you get scared half to death – TWICE?

I would be scared s#*tless!

Where is one place you are guaranteed to be left alone?

Hopefully in the bathroom.

If ALL the world’s a stage, where does the audience sit?

They float around in the space.

Provide three nonsensical quotes on being silly!

Provide 2 truly silly musical videos!

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=5uYVze-bzvA

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Zprt-XTa1So

A serious question now …… exactly, did you think the same?

Ha ha ha………… You read my mind!

Why did Sally sell seashells on the seashore when you can just pick them up anyway?

It was her summer job.

This is a famous bit of gibberish, however …. “How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?”

How much wood did the wood chuck chuck, answers in equal amounts of gibbering jibberish please?

Only a wood chuck knows how much wood it could chuck, ’cause no one chucks wood like a wood chuck chucks.

Who on earth is?

An apples who’s hair transplant went wrong. But it is still happy. Enjoying life!
