Three Things Challenge #701

Today’s words: dawn – skip – frost

It’s nearing the end of August and the summer months will soon

be behind us.

When we access our weather apps early dawn the temperatures

for the day will have dropped into the 40s, then 30s.

Too soon the frost, the spent flowers followed by unwelcome snow.

I wish I could skip over those winter months – ones I used to enjoy.

There’s something to be said for the adage ‘Too soon we get old’.

Three Things Challenge: #685

Today’s words: injury – most – romantic

For weeks the happy couple anticipated this romantic

evening, a candle-lit dinner at one of the local expensive

5-star restaurants.

Tonight was the night they’d celebrate their first wedding

anniversary.

Young, their faces glowing, enjoying a sparkling champagne

toast painted a most beautiful picture of a loving couple.

Unknown ahead . . .

Within minutes all would soon fade replaced by visions

of foreign gray matter, the beginning of the dinner spoiler.

When appetizers were served the young man was

shocked to see several somewhat strange-looking particles

floating atop his steaming hot bowl of chicken soup.

The couple stared at the foreign ingredient. Those minute

pieces didn’t melt nor sink.

Perhaps he should have taken his wife’s suggestion and ordered

the restaurant’s fresh house garden salad.

Although no injury from what now appeared be referenced

contaminated appetizer the man suddenly experienced

loss of appetite and stated ‘no thanks’ when the waitress

brought the already ordered main course.

Poor smiling waitress met with a short-tempered patron.

‘Oh dear’ were her words as she ran off to the kitchen.

Once notified of the situation, the restaurant owner

acted in a most reputable business manner offering up

an apology plus free meals for the couple’s celebration.

The man suffering from a bout of queasiness decided

to cut the evening short.

What a sour note experience!

How unfortunate carelessness of another is the culprit

to spoil such a beautiful occasion.

Today’s words: type – beginning – escort

Let me sit and think a bit how to use the above three words.

Uumm – the silent type – timed writings typed words (usual stuff)

Currently looking at the most recent pop-up window informing me

of when or if I should plain click restart now to install another

update is beginning to turn up the heat and not via the thermostat.

In order to remain sane I may have to once again follow guidelines

or opt to become a new statistic ‘unglued’ and ‘in need’ of a local

technician to escort my laptop for unforeseen repairs.

Chuckle! Chuckle!

Definitely love those random intrusive thoughts – could be I’m bored.
