Flipping Houses

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

I enjoy watching the shows where they flip houses. There are plenty of them galore on cable tv. Take your pick.

There are some of these programs that show expensive houses, and then on top of that, they spend large amounts of money to restore them. They buy these houses sight unseen at times. They have no idea what they will find inside. There are hoarder’s delights, disgusting messes including animal and human feces, and some with either animals or people living inside.

On the other type of show, the flipping companies bid on houses about to be torn down and rarely spend more than $1000 on them. This makes more sense to me than the ones that spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to buy and then find a moldy, termite-infested home and have to pay several hundreds of thousands more to fix it. At times even the foundations are cracked.

Airport Mishap

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

The airport lounge was packed with holiday travelers. The snowstorm raging outside put most flights on delay. Families with small children were having trouble keeping their children under control for such a long period.

John and Carrie’s little girl had a red coat and hood. Suddenly John took off across the lounge and grabbed a little girl out of her mother’s arms. The mother began screaming, and John headed back to his wife.

Security arrived and grabbed John, who hadn’t realized that the little girl wasn’t his daughter. His wife turned around to see what all the fuss was about, and she was holding their daughter in her arms.

“John, what the hell are you doing with that little girl? Cassandra is right here in my arms,” Carrie said. “Let that little girl go, you idiot!”

“Oh, geez, I’m sorry. I thought it was my little girl. They’re dressed the same, and I couldn’t see her face.”

“Do you want to press charges ma’am,” the security guard asked.

“No, I can understand how he felt, and I might have done the same thing. We have to be careful with our children.”

Chairs in the Air

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

The crew had worked hard setting up for the pageant that night on the beach. They set up outside because the weather report was for a beautiful night.

The girls lined up in their gowns for the initial start of the pageant. Since it was a county pageant, they lined up in alphabetical order of the state’s counties.

The audience was starting to file in and seat themselves. The pageant officials had reserved seats for the families. The rest of the audience sat behind them in no particular order.

As the announcer starts the program, the breeze begins to pick up. The contestant’s hair and dresses are starting to blow around.

The sky darkens. The waves are picking up. There is barely time to get inside to safety. Everyone is crammed into the lobby of the hotel.

The guests and contestants watch the chairs on the beach begin to blow around. Trash and kids toys blow into the lobby window.

The skies darken more than usual and as quick as it started it was over. People start venturing out and stop.

Strung up through the stairs were a lot of the chairs caught on the rungs and on each other.

Selfie Disaster

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

“Aw Mom just take your selfie already so we can send them all in one text to Callie,” Marshall said.

“I don’t remember how to take them.”

“Are you kidding me?”

“Look, Junior, you know how much trouble I have with this smartphone. Nothing has changed. I would prefer to go back to my old phone. Why do I need this smartphone anyhow? I prefer to use my desktop computer. Just take my picture with your phone and send that picture. Why does it have to be a selfie?”

“We just want them to be all the same. I will set it up and you will see your picture in the frame and you then just hit the button on the camera. Do you think you can handle that, Mom?”

“I suppose so, but I don’t see why you can’t just take my picture yourself.”

“Here, Mom, it is all set up and ready to go. Make sure you are in the frame the way you want it and hit the camera button.”

There was a flash, and then Mom said, “Here it’s all done. Don’t ask me again.”

Birdie Costume

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

Kellie had a costume party to go to. She searched for a costume at the local store. Nothing suited her. Suddenly in the back of the store, she found a bag and looked inside. She found a bird costume. It had a red-breast, so she assumed it was a robin red-breast. She paid the salesgirl and headed home.

She pulled up videos on the computer to get an idea of how the bird acts. She got a few ideas on movements and practiced them. She thought they looked convincing.

Arriving at the party she was shocked to find out no one else was dressed in a costume. They had played a prank on her and tricked her into wearing a costume. As they started to laugh at her she burst into tears.

Enjoying the Beach

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

Anya and Rollie were just sitting on the beach day after day, enjoying the warm weather and occasional thundershower. They were at a stage in their life where they didn’t have a schedule to be followed and were happy just being with each other no matter what life brought them.

They had both lost their spouses and had always been friends, so it was natural for them to spend their remaining time together. They each had their own hut, but after a particularly nasty storm, Anya’s was completely destroyed. They had no choice but to share Rollie’s. Anya was horrified. She asked him to see if there was another one available.

He asked, but the people living here were long term owners. He asked at the office if they were going to rebuild it. They were sorry, but they lost ten cabins in the storm and couldn’t afford to rebuild them all. All owner’s names would be put in a hat, and they would draw out five names and restore those.

Rollie told Anya the news, and they prayed that Anya’s was one of the ones to be rebuilt. Anya cried when she heard her name called.

Jumping for Joy

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

Neto was trying to buy an apartment in this building just off the square. He had done his homework and was satisfied he had done the best he could do to persuade the owner to sell. Now Neto just had to wait for an answer. He was spending his waiting time dancing around the square and praying for the phone to ring with a positive response.

His phone was ringing, and so he dug it out of his pocket and answered. Mr. Newton had good news for Neto. He had been approved as the owner of the apartment, and so Neto started jumping with joy.
