Thursday, May 31st, 10:00am
April and May

 

May: (pointing out the window) Isn’t that June?

April: (looks over May’s shoulder) Is it?

May: I think it is. I wasn’t expecting her ’til tomorrow.

April: Probably not her then.

May: (sits back) Huh. So what are your plans?

April: (shrugs) I shouldn’t even be here.

May: True. What do you say we go on holiday?

April: Sure! We’ll come back when Robin does.

May: Here’s hoping. For you, at least.

Hera and Willa

 

Hera: It doesn’t fit, I tell you!

Willa: But I had it made to fit. What are we going to do?

Hera: I don’t know! Take it back and see if they can fix it?

Willa: But we’re going the wrong way.

Hera: You should have checked before you left the store.

Willa: How can I check something like that?

Hera: I don’t know. By comparison?

Willa: I had nothing to compare it to when I picked it up.

Hera: Oh well. We’ll have to wait ’til tomorrow now.

Willa: So where are we going to sleep?

Hera: (shrugs) I have a spare.

Willa: (huffs in anger) Do you mean to tell me that all this time you had a spare key, and you made me feel like a failure for getting a new one cut wrong?

Hera: You remember that time you locked me out because you wanted to be alone with your boyfriend?

Willa: Never gonna live that one down, am I?

Hera: No way.

One-Liner Wednesday – Precognition or Coincidence?

What are the odds I’d come across this picture now, after forty-seven years–and what are the odds of giving him yellow hair and orange skin in 1971?

Obviously I was practicing my signature for when I became a famous artist. Haha.

If I’d known then what I know now, I’d have given him smaller hands.


If you would like to participate in this prompt, feel free to use the “One-Liner Wednesday” title in your post, and if you do, you can ping back here to help your blog get more exposure. To execute a pingback, just copy the URL in the address bar on this post, and paste it somewhere in the body of your post. Your link will show up in the comments below. Please ensure that the One-Liner Wednesday you’re pinging back to is this week’s! Otherwise, no one will likely see it but me.

NOTE: Pingbacks only work from WordPress sites. If you’re self-hosted or are participating from another host, like Blogger, please leave a link to your post in the comments below.

As with Stream of Consciousness Saturday (SoCS), if you see a pingback from someone else in my comment section, click and have a read. It’s bound to be short and sweet.

Unlike SoCS, this is not a prompt so there’s no need to stick to the same “theme.”

The rules that I’ve made for myself (but don’t always follow) for “One-Liner Wednesday” are:

1. Make it one sentence.

2. Try to make it either funny or inspirational.

3. Use our unique tag #1linerWeds.

4. Add our lovely new badge to your post for extra exposure!

5. Have fun!

Jules: I feel like I’ve forgotten something.

Francis: You’ve got your wallet?

Jules: Check.

Francis: Your phone?

Jules: Check.

Francis: Your keys?

Jules: Check.

Francis: What else could you have forgotten?

They stare at each other, stunned.

Both: The dog!

Jules: This is so far below me.

Jules: With people I don’t know in it!

Francis: So … meet them!

Jules: (stands) Hello, fellow travellers! I’m Jules!

Jules waits for a response for a few moments.

Jules: (sits) They’re all mute.

Is anyone here on Facebook?

Something has been bugging me for the past week. Actually, Facebook has been bugging me for the past week, telling me how close I am to having 500 followers on my author page. Because for a week now, my followers have equaled 499. I’m so close!

So if you have a Facebook profile and you haven’t already “liked” my page, put me out of my misery, would you? As well as links to all my blog posts, you’ll find the occasional funny or inspirational post, and once in a while, posts to support other authors.

And virtual cookies for everyone!
