Three Things Challenge

To join this writing challenge check out pensitivity101 for the “rules”: https://pensitivity101.wordpress.com/2021/01/12/three-things-challenge-476/

Your three things today are:

MISTRESS
EXPECTATION
ANYWHERE

Billie knew what the expectation was but she didn’t know if she could go through with it. Becoming someone’s mistress, whether congenial and without sexual motive or not, was not what she had planned for her life moving forward. The problem was, Billie didn’t know how to get along in a new city without a job and no friends. This was the first time she had lived anywhere that she was a total stranger, but this was the change that she needed. Life at home had become too much; stress, bills, arguing. If no one knew where she was and no one here knew who she was, maybe she could start fresh and live her life the way she wanted to.

My Driveway: Three Things Challenge

Di gives us three words everyday to use in any creative way we find works. Since I just got done bringing my garbage down my awful driveway this is what came to my mind. To participate go to: https://pensitivity101.wordpress.com/2021/01/07/three-things-challenge-471/

Your three things today are:

TIRED
TIN
MORE

My Driveway

My driveway is steep 
and curvy as hell 
Walking up it and down it 
makes my lungs and brain swell.  

Nothing makes me more tired 
than bringing trash to the road 
there always seems something 
is heavying the load. 

Since there is no more room  
in the tin garbage can 
Trying to get it down safely 
is only part of my plan. 

It isn’t so much as the  
walk down the hill 
it’s the walk back up top 
after years, kills me still.

Have fun and your three things today are:

CREAK
SOCKET
TISSUE

Miller walked around aimlessly, searching for the key, the key that would unlock the truth. He was tired of the darkness, tired of the feeling of empty sockets where his eyes once were. Where in this darkness was the tissue, the tissue that held the DNA to rebuild his eyes, make him a member of the “seeing” world? No one had an explanation, maybe that is why Miller felt he had to keep searching. In the darkness, Miller continued, listening to the familiar creak and groan of the old floorboards in his now dark home.

INOCULATE
NEEDLE

I Challenged the Doc

When I went to the doctors  

I knew what he’d say 

Let’s see how you’ve grown 

Let’s see how much you weigh. 

With the greatest of worries 

I stepped on the scale 

I knew I was overweight 

Yup, hit the head of the nail. 

The doctor he looked at me 

Full of sick dread 

“you’d better lose weight 

Or you’ll soon wind up dead!” 

Then I got off the scale  

And knew the needle was next 

One jab of that thing 

Oh, my muscles did flex! 

To inoculate me 

In such a worrisome state 

Has made me forget  

The time and the date. 

So, I got up to leave 

And I said to the doc 

Next time it’s your turn 

And you can take stock 

Of how bad that thing hurts 

Maybe you even know 

But the look on your face 

Tells me I’d better just go.

Three Things Challenge #385

For 3TC: https://pensitivity101.wordpress.com/2020/10/11/three-things-challenge-385/

Your three things today are:

SONG
HYSTERICS
MOVEMENT

When Billy and I walked into the house my mother was in hysterics. We had no idea what she was crying about and then I saw movement in my peripheral vision. Turning that way I saw a giant spider. No wonder she was freaking out! I started wailing too and our noise was sounding like a rock song. The loudness must have scared the creature away because suddenly we were alone and Billy was rolling on the floor laughing.
