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’.

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.

Today’s words: attire – desk – hiding

The woman dressed in casual attire to run errands.

At the bank she chose to use the ATM rather than chance

meeting a friend or acquaintance with her medium length hair

pulled back into a ponytail.

When the ATM machine prompted preference of denomination

of withdrawal currency she chose ‘no preference’.

Much to her surprise along with mostly twenties appeared a

crisp $100 bill.

It looked untouched and she decided to save it for a special

occasion then placed it in an envelope in her rather large tote bag.

Three weeks passed and suddenly she found herself low on cash.

Wait – she remembered the stored-for-later $100 only to turn up

empty-handed after a quick search.

Where could she have placed it for safe keeping?

She searched her usual places of which her desk was a most popular

one.

Fifteen minutes had quickly flown by and she didn’t wish to be late

for an appointment.

She thought perhaps she’d dropped it and well whomever found it

was a little bit richer.

A few days later she took out all the ones, fives, tens and twenties

from her current ATM withdrawal and decided to place them in

order of denominations.

There in her wallet before her eyes was the crisp missing one-hundred

dollar bill.

It had been hiding unseen for near a month.

To herself she wondered how on earth it found its way from the

closed envelope to the inside pouch of her wallet.

A fleeting thought followed by an outburst of laughter.

She still hasn’t spent it; however, she did transfer it to a zippered

storage space.

Now she wonders if it will be there when she decides to look for

it or will it have found another hiding place.
