Three Things Challenge: PL31


Three Things Challenge: PL31

Rules from originator:

Welcome to the Three Things Challenge. Every day at 10PM (PST) I will post three seemingly unconnected things that will, hopefully, ignite your muse. You don’t have to use all three things if you don’t want to. There are no restrictions on length, style, genre, or anything. Simply read the prompt, see where your muse takes you, and bring us along for the ride. Use 3TC as a tag if you’d like and link back to this prompt, or post your link in the comments below so others can find you.

Happy Writing! 😀

Today’s prompt: tortilla, vault, riverbed

**************************

Sitting on the riverbed and munching on a tortilla my mind whirling as I tried to figure out how I was going to break into the vault at the bank. It sure wouldn’t be as easy as munching on a tortilla. My family was counting on me to provide for them so they could all move to America.

HAVE FUN!


Today’s word: joyous

Antonyms: displeased, dissatisfied, joyless, sad, unhappy, unpleased, unsatisfied

******************************

It was a joyous occasion as Kevin and Jan exchanged their vows in front of the small crowd of friends and family. They were looking lovingly at each other when the minister asked if anyone had any objections?

They were surprised when someone yelled yes, and they all looked to where the guests were sitting. Kevin’s heart sank. The girl he’d fooled around with during his bachelor party was sitting among the guests and getting to her feet. He was displeased. He had thought it was a one-night stand and he had been strangely dissatisfied with the whole episode with her anyhow.

Jan was looking at him sadly. She had thought he was perfect and here he was just like her ex-husband already cheating on her.

Was it Real?

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

The dampness soaked through my clothes as I ran for my life. It wasn’t raining so I was in a damp area, maybe the rain forest. I believe I heard that was always wet.

Putting my thoughts aside I concentrated on running away from my pursuers. It was too dark to see them, but I could sense their evil.

Suddenly I found myself lying on my living room couch and not my bed. “I’m sure it was all a dream.”

Fibromyalgia, Pain and Dementia


I am set to have my hip injected on Tuesday which means no NSAIDS for 5 days before. So since arthritis is pretty much throughout my body it is throbbing from that.

The stress of having that injection (no sedation but a local) has my Fibromyalgia also throbbing. All the pain points hurt and heaven forbid I want to scream each time they touch each other or some other object.

Then to add to that is my dad and his condition especially his dementia. My sister called me yesterday morning to warn me not to visit. She walked in there and he screamed at her to get out and go home. The place is dangerous and he didn’t want her there and a lot more. If he had done that to me I would have burst into tears and been frozen in my spot. My sister said she tried to talk him out of it, but he was simply lost in his dementia and like my mom was full of conspiracy theories. My mom thought my dad was trying to kill her and I was the only one she trusted and I would sit with her during these episodes so she felt safe, but my dad is sure the aliens he was studying about prior to his dementia are out for him and that my sister and I are not safe visiting him. She said that was the worst episode she has witnessed so far. I don’t go that often anyhow due to the long walk from the parking lot to the door, down a long hallway and then down another very long hallway. I can’t walk that far without numerous breaks. He doesn’t like visitors anyway and has no sense of time so he doesn’t protest and in fact he is happier we don’t come because he is so sure that we are being brought in for the kill. It upsets him more than makes him feel better.
