HAVE FUN!


Today’s prompt: attractive

Antonyms: repellent (also repellant), repelling, repugnant, repulsive, revolting, unalluring

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

Bobby was looking for an attractive woman. He was tired of getting stuck with the repulsive looking girls. What was wrong with him?

His best friend, Mark wanted to hook him up with Suzanne Hart. She was a revolting looking girl as well, but Bobby agreed.

When they got together that night, he couldn’t figure out who Mark had brought along. That couldn’t be Suzanne. No way!

Mark practically had to drag the girl over to where Bobby waited. She was attractive. The surprise though was that it was Suzanne. She was a lot prettier than she had ever let on.

The colors were bright and whirling around. She couldn’t see straight. So many colors, then just one, RED, a stain!

The red was dripping down her hands from the slices in her wrists.

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.

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: zoo, aluminum, cocoa

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

The zoo in our background was growing. Our children kept bringing strays home with them.

I sat on the back patio contemplating all the animals and threw the aluminum can across the open space to the recycling bin. The kids were still finishing their cups of cocoa.

Now it was time to feed the menagerie.

Today’s word: Soothe

Antonyms: distress, torment, torture, trouble

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

Nothing I could do was soothing the baby. She continued crying for what seemed forever.

I continued to look to see what was tormenting her. She’d been fed, burped and changed.

I reached down to check to see if she was wet again and I found the trouble. Ouch! The pin in the baby’s diaper had come unhooked and it was sticking her.

(PS I am old enough to have used real diapers and pins and sticking a baby wasn’t totally unusual)

100 Word Challenge – inspiration is the word boredom


100 Word Challenge (boredom)

Boredom!

by Teresa Smeigh 2019

Here I sit thinking. Trying to come up with a piece on boredom. I have several prompts to catch up on, but I am not really feeling it right now.

I had to clean off my computer desk looking for the piece to my cellphone that allows me to add a headset, but it wasn’t there. It was a very small piece and I was ever so careful with it for over a year, but somehow it has disappeared. I am sure it is someplace safe. Why do we always lose things from where we put them to be safe?

*****100 words*****

Tara’s Rules

1) I provide a one-word prompt.
2) Write anything you want using that prompt, either as inspiration or as part of your 100 Words.(That means you don’t have to actually use the prompt word, it can be implied.)
3) Your story has to be EXACTLY 100 words (because someone will ask, hyphenated words count as a single word.) This is the one rule I will be a stickler about.
4) Submit your story here as a comment, as a Facebook status, or as a blog post. (Add the specific FB status or post’s URL to the Mr. Linky list just under the prompt.)
5) If you write a blog post, please link back to this post. It makes it easier for me and the other Wordsters to find you.
6) You have one week to write your story and link up (The link stays open, so you can really submit stories whenever… this is the one rule I don’t really enforce.)

Today’s prompt: adore

Antonyms: abhor, abominate, despise, detest, execrate, hate, loathe

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

Jane picked out a doll that she adored. She took it home and set it in its spot in her bedroom.

That night she came to loathe that doll. The doll was as big as her. She couldn’t look at it anymore because she was sure that that doll was watching her every move with its eyes. She despised it and told her parents the next morning that they had to get ride of that detestable doll immediately.
