Today’s Prompt Word:


Following the fashion

Nancy had always wanted to be the part of the fashionable crowd. She followed the celebrities, copied their way of dressing and generally tried to be ala modé. However, she her body wasn’t made for the latest fashions. If dressed according to her body type, she looked elegant but in the latest fad fashions, the look was definitely unmodish and style less! One of her friend, in fact her best friend tried to give her fashion advice but unfortunately Nancy, thought that she knew better. The results were certainly uncool and un-stylish. Poor Nancy.

Three Things Challenge PL #22

Have you heard the report of zombies spotted

They are every where you look

Here and there, you cannot escape them anywhere

Be careful you don’t bump into them

For then there is a danger that they will trample you

Not aware of where they are

Or where they are headed, so engrossed they are

Holding their cell phone in their hand

Be it a nanny or a zany, it makes no difference

Mindlessly staring and watching the screen of the phone

Tripping, bumping or falling, yet staring

On that brightly lit phone.

Written in response to;


report, nanny, zombies

Though the panther was found of acrobatic activities, he wasn’t going to share his space with this slimy green frog. It was time to get rid of the greeny.

“How about it, if you just disappear from my line?”He said

The frog, though of a humble nature wasn’t going to allow the panther to walk all over him. “I am sorry, pal but this is free line and anyone can use it”

The irate panther decided to teach the frog a lesson.” You are right, froggy. Let’s swap places so that you can move the other way”

The frog let go of one hand to move to the other side of the panther. Panther expertly kicked him and away went the poor frog flying into the garden grass. But going on this aerial journey, at the last minute he made a grab for the tail of the panther. Oops!

7 and Three Quarters Nutty

One of the best things about questions is the ability to stray off the beaten track. To not ask the same questions over and over again, that might lead to mundanity! I can’t stand mundanity which is why l am constantly thinking or trying to think of new creative ways to get my fellow bloggers amused, active and involved. Now back by popular demand but different — the crazy questions!

There are no rules, no taggings, if you want to Reblog or Share out by all means feel free to do so. The only request l have is to include a ping back so l don’t miss out on any of the battiness! Failing that, by all means please feel free to simply answer the questions below.

The Friday Four March 1st

Another Set of Question for Friday Four, by Rory, AKA Bloke

The Friday Four

Last one in this Series with one extra question as it is Series 1

1] If you are in a bad mood, do you prefer to be left alone or have someone to cheer you up?

It depends on what caused the bad mood. If someone has caused it, I would prefer to simmer down by myself and after cooling down, I would talk to that person to sort out things. If the mood is due to circumstances, I talk about it to my husband or my best friend. That usually calms me down.

2] What’s the one thing that people always misunderstand about you?

Always is a big word. Some people, sometimes may think that I am a dominating person, but let me assure them all that it is just plain misunderstanding!

3] What do you think about when you’re by yourself?

Anything that I have to resolve, sort out or simply needs a calm period of thinking. I prefer to not only be by myself at these times but I also talk about these things with myself. Getting expert advice is important, you know.

4] What are three things you value most about a person?

Sincerity , honesty and sense of humor. The ability to see the funny side of serious things is as important as being honest and sincere.

Bonus Series 1 Question

If heaven is real and you died tomorrow, would you get in?

I definitely hope so. And in my mind, there is no if about heaven. So I sincerely hope to get in, the other option is too terrible to contemplate.

Three Things Challenge PL # 11

Jack had one orange sock and the other maroon

He decided to go for a ride in a hot air balloon

Up in the sky he thought lovingly of his supper

And wanted the balloon ride to be over speedily

Thinking of food gave him the hiccups, hic hic hic

He tried to control them but it was like an annoying tic

Thankfully the ride ended and Jack landed on the ground

He got off and thinking of his dinner hurried to his abode

He never wanted to venture so high in the air again

There are plenty of places to have adventure on the ground.

socks, balloon, hiccups

Three Things Challenge PL# 10

Dressing the little guy in a tiny bathrobe

Made to look like a rabbit, cute and cuddly

Posing it for pictures , soon to be shared

On all her accounts of the social media

The mother is so keen on showing the world

All the kaleidoscope of colorful images that

She captures of her little baby, every single day

Written in response to;

Today’s prompt:

rabbit, bathrobe, kaleidoscope





The air was thick with the curse words being thrown at the rapscallion. And he was so thick skinned that it was not even bothering him a bit that the whole bunch of the village elders were berating him for the prank he had played on them. This incident happened today when the old lady who ran the little inn came to open her business in the morning. There was a huge pile of discarded shoes in front of her main door. When she tried to move them, they appeared to be stuck there. The theory that was put forward by the villagers was that they were glued to the wooden poach at night by him. Now they all were itching to give him a piece of their mind, but he was deaf to all this commotion, listening to music on his headphones and nodding his head with the beat!

Tale Weaver # 211 ; Making Sense of The Nonsense-Egrlactical 21Feburary

This week a nonsense word to play with.

You can use it as a noun or verb or adjective, go where your imagination takes you.

Please limit your responses to 500 – 600 words and link your work using the linking tool below.

My favorite people are the egrlacticals.

There are many types of people in the world. The analysts are the one who questioned and analyze the facts to get to the conclusion. Then there were the egrlactical who believe everything and anything anyone told them. There are many advantages of being an egrlactical. They have a very peaceful mind as there are no conflicts in their brain. Taking everything at face value makes them very pleasant company and they are the first ones to agree with you during any debate. People invite them to their homes because they will swallow all the far-fetched tales you can relate to them. I personally like that they are the most pleasant guests you can have. Another advantage of being an egrlactical is that you will never get in a fight or argument with them because of a divergent view or faith.

Where these people are highly popular, some people can and do take exception to the yea sayers. It sets off their non-conformist alarm. They do like someone to disagree with them and the egrlactical disappoints them in this scenario. Some people like to make fun of the very trusting nature of an egrlactical person, getting them to agree first to one point of view and then presenting them with a completely opposite opinion where the egrlactical will agree with it too.

Make friends with an egrlactical and you will have a lovely time with them!
