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.

Taking a Dive

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

Rose and Martin had bought their first house in Florida. They noticed the houses around them all had these enormous screened-in patios in their back yard around their pools.

As they met their neighbors, they started noticing these people left all their back patio doors open at all time creating an open house layout. They finally asked someone why they had these screens on the back of their houses. It enlarged their home they were told, and it was like having an indoor pool as well.

They didn’t have enough money yet having just bought this house, so they decided to wait, but as the days went by, people told them they had to worry about alligators coming up to use their pool. The screens would keep them out.

Rose and Martin were beginning to wonder. What were the chances of an alligator coming up to use their pool?

One day something happened to make them reconsider.

They were having a large barbecue. Martin went to clean out the barbecue grill and suddenly yelled.

“What is wrong, Martin,” Rose yelled from the house.

“We have company,” he yelled back at her and then entered the house.

“What do you mean we have company? It is really early.”

“I mean I opened up the barbecue grill, and it had several lizards in it. I talked to the neighbor, and they said it was normal, that is why they screened in their back yards and covered the pool. That keeps out the alligators and lizards from getting in.”

“Martin, we need to get a screen asap. It would also open up our pool area nicely and then we could have a covered pool as well. I like the idea. Please.”

“Ok, you win. We’ll get a screened-in porch as well. I will start asking where to get one at the party.”

“Oh, Martin, thank you so much. I would hate to run into an alligator in the pool one morning.”

Treatment Day

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

Although the waiting room was much more modern than the one I remembered as a kid, it is there for the same reason. It’s a doctor’s waiting room, and I’m going through a long spate of an illness that simply won’t go away. The treatment requires a needle, and I’m afraid of them. One needle is supposed to treat it and make it go away, but it isn’t working.

“As a child, I used to run down the long halls as far away as I could get from the doctor,” I told the receptionist.

“I hope you don’t plan on doing that now, Mrs. Jones.”

“With all this weight and my age, I doubt I would get far. I reckon I will have to take the shot, like it or not, but why aren’t the shots working,” I sighed to myself.

The receptionist smiled to herself. The doctor was giving her a placebo to make her keep coming back and paying for the expensive treatment. This treatment is known for its failure, and the doctors all like it that way. Eventually, they will give the patient the real one, and they won’t have to come back after that usually, but why not milk it out while they can.

Moving Day

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

“Yo, Roscoe, have you seen the orange chair in your travels back and forth to the old house?”

“Penny, do we need that chair? It’s ugly!”

“Yes, it’s important to me. It came from my grandmother’s house, and she gave it to me specifically in her will because I always sat in it.”

“You know it is the ugliest chair I have ever seen. How many times do I need to tell you that?”

“I don’t care what you think. It’s important to me, and that is all that should matter to you.”

“I left it outside on the street in the alley beside our house. Someone has probably picked it up by now.”

“You had better hope it is still there, Roscoe, or I might throw you out in the alley.”

Mumbling to himself, Roscoe finds his truck keys and heads out to the alley.

The front doorbell sounds through the house and Penny goes to see who is calling already. She ends up looking at her orange chair in her sister’s arms. “Look what I found Penny? I always wanted this chair. Now I have one too.”

“That’s my chair, Patty. Give it back!”

“No way!”
