I want to start out by apologising for being away for so long. I haven’t had the opportunity to catch up on my reading either, so you can all expect some major stalking this week. Hospital postings, getting elected as the new associate editorial secretary(I KNOW, I promise I’ll brag about it in another post and maybe also the one after that and the one..) and a silly fight with mom which unfortunately still hasn’t reached the “and they lived happily ever after” part yet are some of the reasons why I was away from here. I could have just said I have a busy life but most of you reading would have laughed out loud and wondered ‘but she doesn’t have a life’. Moving on.
I got nominated by fattymccupcakes who is one of the sweetest bloggers I have had the opportunity to interact with a terrific blogger! 😀 Before I decide to abduct her, let me get to the rules of the one liner challenge.
Here you go;
1. Write one line in the ongoing story, in italics.
2. Pass the challenge onto the next victim/Nominee.
3. Link back to your nominator.
4. Link back to Me, Waffles, if you could please, this could be very interesting.
5. Copy and paste all the previous story and add your line.
And the story goes …
It was a warm sunny day and sea was an almost transparent shade of blue.
I lay there, watching the waves lap on the shore, a drink in hand, a tear rolling down my cheek.
I stand up yelling at that boy who threw this load of sand into my eyes and my drink when he jumped over me.
I then grabbed my water gun, running fast after him, I was laughing, he was jumping over people to escape. He turned to look at me, but didn’t see the two children in front of him carrying two delicious looking ice cream cones.
As he barreled into the children, knocking the ice-cream from their grasp, I caught one of the scoops of pistachio and hurled it at his head as I fell laughing to the ground!
And what luck, his mouth was open and he gulped down the scoop, spitting nuts rapid-fire style like a rabid squirrel! And wouldn’t you know it, a squirrel leaped from a nearby tree, performing a flying maneuver worthy of the best traveling circus family, catching the nuts in his mouth in mid-air!!
It was all too fantastical and I wondered for a moment if I’d forgotten to take my medication earlier…or perhaps I took too much!
I opened my eyes with a jolt, peeled my face from the sticky plastic beach lounger, and rubbed my eyes-sun and too many mojitos make for ridiculous dreams!
Unaware to her, the man behind the one way mirror furiously scribbled down notes and couldn’t help but marvel at how his creation truly believed IT was a real human being and he hadn’t even begun stage 2984DU which everyone with his intellect knows is when the real fun starts!
So that’s my addition. I have been following this story for quite sometime now and it’s been a great ride! A special hug to the innovative blogger who invented this challenge 😉 That’s you waffles :*
Aaaand before I forget (I did, but I’m editing it now so let’s pretend I didn’t)Marissa Bergen, I nominate you! 😀
