279. Scenes from the Second Seat on the Right

Wednesday, June 6th, 9:00am
Meghan and T.J.


Meghan: You going to Tim Horton’s today?

T.J.: I wasn’t planning on it, why?

Meghan: It’s Camp Day.

T.J.: Oh yeah! No. I’m not going to Tim’s.

Meghan: You don’t want to send a kid to camp?

T.J.: Not really. I don’t think any kid should be subjected to that many mosquitoes.

Meghan: But it’s not all about the mosquitoes.

T.J.: Not to mention the spiders, snakes, raccoons, bears …

Meghan: You never went camping as a kid, did you?

T.J.: How can you tell?

Meghan: ‘Coz there’s so much more to it than that.

T.J.: Like what?

Meghan: Sleeping in a tent, canoeing, the campfire …

T.J.: Finding out there’s a rock in the middle of the tent when you’re trying to get to sleep, getting caught in a sudden storm in the middle of the lake, melting the toes of your sneakers because you’re freezing to death … I have friends who went.

Meghan: McDonald’s?

T.J.: (nods) It’s for the kids.

One-Liner Wednesday – Bird Dog

For some reason, Winston likes to sit on my shoulder. You can’t see it here, but his front paws are up there too.

I think he thinks he’s a budgie.

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!
