The story begins with me filling the thermos with hot coffee. Watching the meme on Facebook made me choke after the first sip I’d swallowed. How did the boy jump into that open window?I try to believe this was not real. “Magic’s a sin, right?” hastily putting down the phone. It immediately caught on fire! Whoa! Now I have grounds to believe in supernatural things. What’s next – me being able to fly?
Laughing, I went off fishing. Hooking a line with a worm to put an end to this hunger seemed a much more reasonable thing to do.
I stood right in the middle of it, shaking visibly. There was no hope of escaping the anger emanating from this rally. The hate was palpable. One side wanted his reign to continue; the other wanted him to resign. All the while, he continues to divide us further. Villain or just a genius disguise as he throws shade on those most vulnerable? How can they not see he is such a charlatan? I watched each side form a human chain to protect those behind them. Which one will shoot first?
Shame! Gang mentality is astain on our country today.
Hi everyone! I will be taking a writing break for the next couple of weeks as my focus needs to be elsewhere. This means the IWH Interpretations Challenge will be on hold until December 3rd. But I will continue to have daily posts of previously unpublished pieces for you to enjoy which I scheduled in advance. Feel free to comment, I’ll still check-in and respond.
So for now, I will leave you with the recap of the Interpretations submissions from last week. Please go check out the authors!
The true thick brew tastes salty. It needs more milk and caramel. Sipping this concoction, I begin wondering about these millennials like the college-educated barista behind the counter. As individuals, I’d say they are responding to the current climate as expected, and I even think appropriately. I’d do the same, and I’m a boomer. They come away resembling a champ in my book. I like spunk. Give those boomers their marching orders, I say! The younger generation has rights too, you know!
I hand the barista my business card. “Luscious drink, tiger!” I said with a wink.
