writing prompt friday: bananas

RDCW_WPF_Bridge

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday! I have now completed my first week of working from home. Hubs, who’s also working from home (when he can), is an excellent officemate.

Then there’s my cat Henwen.

Adorable? Yes. Sweet? Yes. Loving? Yes. Quiet? Um, no.

But so adorable, even when she sings me the song of her people.

As the week has worn on, she’s calmed down, but still drops in at lunch to let me know she’s in charge and has a wide vocal range.

But again, so adorable.

I wonder if this is how Husband sees me…

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

A thriving farm. A lost stranger. Three cursed bananas.

Writing Prompt Friday (alternate)

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 (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?

No limit on length.

Writing Prompt Friday (what if)

Hello and welcome back to Writing Prompt Friday! I love changes in seasons, especially if that season is fall or winter. Those are my favorites. Fall and winter signal the holidays, which are my annual Olympic-esque seasons of joy and activity. And I finally know what to wear everyday: layers. Comfy, boofy, soft layers. That I can curl up under my desk for a nap during lunch and passers by can’t recognize me…except for my nameplate. Clearly this plan has a flaw.

Now, on to this week’s prompt…

What if you were kidnapped by alien clowns on your way to the dry cleaners?
