This week’s prompt at 3LineTales is the image below.


Meredith bragged to her friends that her brand new Chuck Taylor All Stars were the exact same shade of yellow as the guard rail. They didn’t believe her so after school she tried to prove them wrong. It turned out that the color of Meredith’s new sneakers were much closer to the yellow shade of the school bus that hit her.

The Good Stuff


This week’s writing prompt at 3LineTales is the image below.


How thoughtful of Auntie Sybil to leave me the things she treasured most: old spools of thread (hours of fun!), two books (she knew about my dyslexia) and these tacky silk roses. To think poor Cousin Earl is stuck with her filthy, dirty millions, while I’ve got the good stuff. Life can be so unfair….

Are you a practical jokester?

Not so much anymore. Sometimes practical jokes aren’t all that funny to the recipient.

Who cuts your hair? You, a friend, or professional.

I go to ULTA to get my hair cut. It’s so hard to find someone who knows how to cut naturally curly hair. One time I went to Great Clips and got butchered. Never again.

Did you have a stuffed animal when you were a kid, if so what kind?

Yes! And I still have her. Yum-Yum is her name, and she is a stuffed fish. I much preferred my stuffed animals to baby dolls. In fact, it was the animals who got pushed around in the baby buggy while the dolls were flung in the bottom of my closet. But then, when I was a little older, I got a Barbie doll and absolutely loved her.
