Writing Prompt Friday (bring it back)

writingpromptfridaycoffee

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday! The world has hit me hard in the morning coffee today. First, I learned that my secret source of pumpkin spice latte might (probably) be selling expired syrup, which means that I shouldn’t be drinking any more of it until pumpkin spice lattes are re-relaunched later this year. Second, my favorite brew-it-at-home coffee has been discontinued and sold out; I’m down to a bag and a half left.

Dear coffee company customer service, when you tell me you’ve discontinued my favorite coffee in the world, don’t include a $#%!ing smiley face to the end of your message. That does not soften the blow.

And now, on to this week’s writing prompt…

Write a letter imploring the universe to bring back your favorite childhood toy.

Writing Prompt Friday (alternate)

WPF_SnowDucky

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday! Well, for Christmas, I found and set out a mechanical cat that wears a holiday scarf, and that wiggles and meows to “Jingle Bells” when I squeeze its paw. And it meows with gusto. Loudly.

For some reason, it started wiggling and meowing without its paw being touched in any way by anything. At random hours of the day and night.

Husband took its battery out.

It stopped.

Then my Mickey Mouse Tsum Tsum toy started doing the same thing.

I’m a little creeped out.

Now on to this week’s writing prompt…

Write an alternate ending to the end of your day.

No limit on length.

Writing Prompt Friday (in the belly)

WPF

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday! Well, it’s January 17, and my Christmas tree is still up. The cat still keeps trying to climb it. The holiday storage bins are scattered about the home. The cat is unhappy about this state of clutter. Ice hugs my doorstep. The cat doesn’t care because she lives her life indoors, safe and snug. Snow blankets my husband’s car because I park under covered parking like the snowflake I am. (I’m okay with this; so is the husband; I love him; how many semicolons are too many?)

None of this has anything to do with this week’s prompt, but I hope you enjoy it anyway…

I work in the stomach of a teenage boy.

P.S. Yes, I’m taking the tree down this weekend.

Writing Prompt Friday (ghosts)

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday! Christmas is next week. To give you an idea of how much I love this holiday, I hereby happily admit that I once had my (plastic) Christmas tree up in August, just in time for school to start here in the U.S.

Presents are nice. Presents are lovely. And I’m married to the world’s most thoughtful gift giver. But what I love most, and this may sound cliche, is that so many people are just a little bit nicer to each other. A bit more forgiving. A bit more likely to let you merge into traffic without shining their vehicle’s high beams into your brain.

Of course, there are those who are jerks or plain evil all year round. But otherwise, this time of year brings out the best in others. And I love that.

I just realized that I need to stop posting on my blog and get ready for my last 1-on-1 of the year with my boss.

So, on to this week’s prompt…

The three ghosts of Christmas discuss your progress this year. What do they say?
