Two poems, totally unrelated!

Time is a river that never flows twice

It won’t travel upstream either

What has gone by us has been lost forever

Unless we have stored beautiful memories of it in our mind

Comedy is a work of a genius little appreciated

They would try to amuse us, putting their dignity on line

The audience maybe not be responsive but they do it anyway

A laugh or a smile is reward enough for them

Question Fun#1

Question Fun

Welcome to Question Fun The Twice Weekly Game!

An easy game, and more so if you love questions!  Each game has a topic, and then there are 17 questions relating to the topic – they can be visual, musical, personal, professional, topical, serious, thought provoking, fun, weird and even wacky – the questions will cover all fields and there is no structure to follow, so it could orderly one day and completely random the next time you play!

Today’s topic is ………….. Creativity & Imagination!

What is creativity?

Creativity is the third eye. You see beyond the obvious and come up with something no one has thought of till then.

Is creativity a good thing to have?

Obviously, who doesn’t want a third eye!

How much does a mountain weigh?

A bit more than me.

If the wheel had not have been inventented, where we would be now?

We would be driving tanks around.

How many books in the average library?

25,000,00. I know because I counted.

Why do we wear shoes, l mean is it really important?

Very important. Getting blisters and chafed heals is very painful.

What’s more important, creativity, imagination or knowledge and why?

It is very important to use your creativity with imagination and knowledge. I guess all of them are important.😎

Do you think that creativity is part of human nature or is it something that must be nurtured and learned? I mean are we born creative?

We all are. You have to go to Kindergarten to see how creative these little tots are who haven’t had time to learn it from anyone yet. It’s the adults who lose their creativity because they don’t have enough confidence in themselves.

What’s the worst name you could give a raccoon?

A squirrel with two black eyes!

What the best name you could give your goldfish?

My golden mermaid ( almost)

If you could curse someone – what curse would you choose?

That they could never achieve their desired weight, even if they diet their entire life….. Oh wait, maybe someone has cursed me!

If you were in the worst possible natural disaster you could be in would you survive?

Nopes. I don’t think I have the required survival skills.

What was your natural disaster then?

An earthquake or a tsunami. Won’t survive either.

You have been tasked with the role of imagining a new government – what would you conjure up and why?

A place where there is a just and fair government for everyone. No discrimination on any basis.

What is imagination in your eyes?

Through my third eye, everything.

Given the choice would you prefer to be creative, imaginative, inventive or self aware?

I would want to be all of these. And I think I am.

Why?

See answer above.

No substantial proof

It was a fascinating subject that he got entangled in

Astral projections and paranormal phenomenon

After spending a substantial amount of time on it

He could say with certainty that this road was paved

With lot of untruthful facts and fancy stories which surely

Lacked the backing of solid reality, an absolute factor that was needed

If people wanted him to spend his had earned money on it

It was the speed with which they changed their stories

That had him loosing his faith in the authenticity of it all

Elmer Gantry was drunk.

—Sinclair Lewis, Elmer Gantry (1927)

The stage was set. And the cast was ready for the first rehearsal. The main lead, Elmer Gantry was being played by a student, Williams who prided himself on his acting talent. When the time for the most important scene of the drama was being portrayed, Williams had a lot of difficulty in doing the scene. It was rehearsed so many times and every time there had to be a do over. Exasperated, the drama teacher came on stage and addressed him, ” Williams, Elmer Gantry was drunk, not sick. You have to make it look real” Williams was quick off the mark with his ready wit. ” Mrs B, I haven’t ever been drunk, so I have no idea how a drunk person behaves” Mrs B could see the justice in this statement, so she asked one of the junior teacher to play the lead, as he knew to act drunk.

I cannot bear a ho hum existence

I crave excitement and new experiences in life

The routine and the ordinary bores me to tears

Let’s go out and explore the yard for new pray

Or we could go somewhere new to catch a few

Happy three-lining!

It was Aunt May’s sixth fifth birthday party and she had decided to invite both of her elder sisters to celebrate this occasion.

June who was five years senior to May, was a bit cross at this invitation as nobody had remembered her birthday and now not only she was here to attend this party despite her aching hip, she had to bring a present for her ” little ” sister as well.

April, the eldest was totally against this barbaric custom of reminding a person every year, how old they had become, but here she was because they all had to keep up the appearances of a happy sisterhood.

Have Fun!

Prompt A (setting challenge): Medical Office

Prompt B (Story Starter): “How do you think you did?”

Prompt C (photo):

“How did you think you did it?” The exasperated doctor ask Melody.”Eating a whole box of caramel candy would do it to anyone” The rapid-fire questions from the nursing staff when Melody was first brought to the doctor’s office had already put her in a defiant mood and now the doctor was also putting her in the corner by implying that eating a box of candy was something nobody had ever done before. Mel had gotten the box as a birthday present from her friend and one by one she had consumed all of them. The result……was a bad tummy ache and a sort of sugar high that had worried her parent so much that they her brought her to the medical center to see the doctor.

After giving her some meds for her tummy, the doctor told her mom that she should not have given the eight year old total control over the big box of candies.

A new excuse

Applying the lipstick anew on her luscious lips

She ventured forth to settle the arrears due

She needed a suitable excuse to justify the spending

“She was not the one to incur debt or owe money

It was her husband, you see who had gambled away

All the savings they had accumulated over the years”

With a tear or two, she managed to convince the people

Who had a short time earlier demanding dues paid in full

Hiding a triumphant smile she came home to share the good news

Her husband was relieved but admonished her to never again

Run into debt or be overdrawn and in arrears again

What’s My Story Then #5

Rory of A Guy Called Bloke has asked us to write a story on this picture and prompt.

Using the image above and the title below it  “They told me, they said don’t do it, don’t look but …”

She was always this way. If told not to do something, she had to do it. Maybe it was the non-conformist in her who reacted this way.

So when the girls at the boarding school told her that it was forbidden to go towards the southern part of the building and specially not to look through those stained glass windows, she felt that she had to do it. Specially since no one came up with any logical reason why they shouldn’t. That part mostly housed rooms which were used to store old files and furniture which was redundant. When every one was going for the PT class she slipped away and peeked at the stained glass window but she couldn’t see anything interesting at all. She moved closer and pushed at one of the panes. The pane gave way and she was jolted forward with its movement. She was trapped between the two panes and try as she would, there was no way she could get out from them. She called out for help but since no one came to that part of the building, no help was forthcoming. It was late in the evening when the roll call was held before bedtime that they noticed the She was missing. The rescue was most welcome and this exploit taught her finally to listen to the words of wisdom.
