Daily Prompts- Make a joke

The first day of April brings memories

Of playing pranks, practical jokes, and tricks

Am I too old now for doing this, I ask

Or the mood is too somber to do it anyway

Let’s not break the infrangible traditions

Let’s find a victim to play a lark on

But it will have to be from a safe distance

We can pretend we’re ghosting someone as a joke

A prank done online, or maybe a message

Published to evoke some smiles

Let’s do this, just to make people smile

She should not have eaten all those flamin hot Cheetos!

Now she has to rush to the public toilets in the mall and there was no toilet paper, just an empty roll with words, “Plan B” written on it. With all this virus scare people were buying toilet paper like crazy as if it would save them from the virus by itself. She was out of the ones she kept in her bag. Fervently she thought of a plan b till a likely solution came to her.

How lucky that she had facial wipes in her bag!

The Sunday Whirl- Wordle # 449

B Warren is the host of the Sunday Whirl

~*~*~

What an amazing sight. Both the kids were so excited to play in the real maze. Chattering excitedly they lost themselves in the intricate pathways of the maze. But soon enough they were feeling trapped as they couldn’t find their way out. Their mom tried to give them a hand by shouting out the lay of the land. At last, dad went in armed with a map and a stash of seeds. He scattered the seeds so that he can find the way back. It was a nerve-wracking experience for them all when they saw insects crawling all over them. They never attempted to go to a maze again.

Sunday Writing Prompt “Dear Diary”

~*~*~*~

30 March 2020

Dear diary;

Today I washed my hands just twenty times. The skin on my hands is dry, but it is the weather. Some days I wash them even more often. But I am happy that my brother who used to make fun of my habit to keep my hands clean and germ-free, is washing his hands even more than me. He is afraid of getting sick by catching the virus. Now everyone admits that my habit of washing my hands after every little while is a good habit and no one is making fun of me anymore.

Today was a good day!

The Prompt;

For today’s prompt you are going to write a diary/journal entry. The entry can be from any point in the narrator’s life past, present, or future. If future tense and from your own perspective try to imagine where you would like to be. If you are writing from your own past try to write from your perspective at that time. If you are writing as a seven year old child it should read as if it was written by a seven year old child.

Thursday Inspiration # 49- Sharp

Paula is the host of Thursday Inspiration

Welcome to Thursday Inspiration!

This week’s theme is sharp and the picture is below. Here is the song snippet from “Sharp Dressed Man” written by Frank Beard, Billy Gibbons, and Dusty Hill and recorded in 1983 by ZZ Top.


Cufflinks, stick pin,
When I step out I’m gonna do you in
They come runnin’ just as fast as they can
‘Cause every girl crazy ’bout a sharp dressed man

He thought he was quite sharp. It was a requirement for his profession. He was a con man after all.

Today he was attired in his best suit. Ready to go and pluck innocent chickens.

The lady he met at the bar seemed loaded and quite lonely. He lured her with compliments and bought her drinks. She was getting quite tipsy and he was ready for his coup.

Her phone beeped and looking at it she got up excused herself to go outside the bar. She told him that her friend was outside to take her home. He became desperate as he had invested a lot of time and money in her. He tried to hold her hand to stop her from leaving. She turned around and gave him a hug, promising to meet him there the next day. After she was gone, he decided to leave and asked for his tab. When he put his hand in his pocket for his wallet, it came out empty. He searched for it but it was gone. The lady had pulled the con. Apparently, he wasn’t that sharp.

Daily Prompts- Confessions

I need to confess something here

I tried to buy all the toilet paper in the store

I was grabbing a cartload when I was told to stop

I tried to parlay with the store clerk

But he told me I am allowed just one pack

The rest should be left for others in need

I raised my fist in anger, What do I care

If others don’t have any, they can then

Come to the store and hunt for them

The fellow gave me a quizzical look

He was sure I had lost my sanity

He showed me a copy of the notice on all aisles

Telling shoppers to be mindful of others while shopping

Shamefaced I walked out of the store empty handed

And went into another to buy some more

~*~

( I fail to understand why people are hoarding TP. There was always enough for everyone before this crisis )

Ann’s birthday was on May 12th. And she wanted to invite all her friends from school. There were to be games like apple bobbing, pin the tail and musical chairs.

All arrangements were made outdoors to fit in 12-15 kids. They all had great fun, till the sap from the maple tree started dripping over them. There were yelps of annoyance from both the kids and adults alike. The pale liquid was sticky and ruined their clothes. But Ann emitted a loud peal of laughter and started doing laps around the yard. Her pep and joy invigorated other kids and they had a fantastic time at the party. It’s true that the outcome of what life dishes out to us, is totally dependent upon our attitude.

Daily Prompts- To be or not to be….

Swamped by work

Need entertainment

A break from routine

Floundering in uncertainty

Don’t want to go round the bend

The pay may be great but is it worth it

If the work doesn’t deliver satisfaction

What is the use of the daily toil

If nothing worthwhile is being achieved

I am in suspense, what should I decide?

MLMM- Tale Weaver – #267 – Fairytale – Fairyland – 19th March

Michael is the host of Tale Weaver

IMG_0387

~*~

Once upon a time, there was a fairy princess

Who lived in the fairyland in a castle, of course

Though she was a sweet looking fairy

But she possessed the temper of the devil itself

The castle rang with her angry shouts from morn till dusk

Everyone was fed up with her tantrums, even the king and the Queen

They thought they would marry her off

It was time someone else took the temper blasts

No one was willing to take her for a bride

As the fame of her temperament reached far and wide

Finally, a troll was persuaded to take the plunge

Bribed with lots of gold and promises

Just a few hours after the wedding there was a loud knock

The door to the castle was flung wide open and in walked the newlyweds

They made the life so unbearable for the King and the Queen

They quietly packed their bags and moved under the bridge!

The Prompt;

This week write about an imaginary fairyland. What are the features you notice about your particular fairyland?

Who are the inhabitants?

Is it a peaceful harmonious environment?
