Some More Small Stories

I've never dreamt I could fly
but I've been naked in a whole lot of them
I bet if I had a dream about flying
I'd be naked in that one too

...the end

she was stocking shelves
I asked where I could find salad olives
she said, "we don't sell them"
but, I bought some last week, I said
"I wasn't here last week", she said
I looked down at my shoes, mumbling
she went back to stocking tiny jars of I don't know....

...the end

my glasses fell into the toilet
I cut my hand opening a bubble wrap
I broke a tooth on a stale french roll
my white wash came out pink
and there's a cat's hairball on my pillow

so, of course, my facebook friends needed to one up me
most of them could...and did

I'm not surprised...but, WOW, that's sadder than a dead cat!

...the end

I really like Mambo #5
you know "a little bit of Monica in my life"
that one
I'd bellow a sing-along
goose-stepping my signature
teutonic tango dance...but,
I can't do that anymore
it always ends with me sleeping on the couch
I don't know why,
but for some reason, or another
Grizeldafren really hates that song

...the end

they say there's a time and place for everything
2:37 am on the steps of Saint Francis the Do-Gooder church
is not the time or place to pee
I'm pretty sure now, but aren't most Irish cops catholic?
I wonder if Judge O'Shanahan would accept bias as a defense
I'm not catholic...but, I bet even Francis had to take a wicked wizz once in awhile

...the end

Review Request (Intensity):

Love judy

'Each for the joy of the working, and each, in his separate star,
shall draw the Thing as he sees It, for the God of Things as They are.'
(Rudyard Kipling)

I write some strange stuff sometimes...informal forms, no hard-wired style
no rules broken because I don't have any...I wander into whatever...not knowing any better...for better or worse...I'm still kicking tires, looking for the right vehicle.

thanks Judy
