The waiting is over…

Five Sentence Fiction prompt this week is:
Waiting

suitcase-79018_640

Today, the waiting is over and I will leave this place where I have lived all my life. This has been a good place of quiet solitude; wrapped in love and warmth, with  a steady rhythm like that of a gentle drum.  While here I have learned a couple of things about myself:  I love warm baths and a good stretch but I do not like spicy foods or sudden loud noises.  I am ready to move from here, as nice as it is, for it has become crowded and I want to grow and experience all of life.  The waiting to move from here is over for today is my birth day.

Something new, no…

A while back I posted about
Something new,maybe

Well, I have an update.

There will not be something new.

What the new thing might have been was a kitten.

A friend of mine called and said a co-worker of  his friend
bought a cat from a breeder but found she is allergic to cats.
So, she was looking for a home for the kitten.

I asked my friend to ask a couple of things about the kitten;
sex, age, shots, status of general health, general description, how much…

He called back and said the first thing he heard was that she wanted $500.00.
So, he didn’t ask the other questions because he was sure I didn’t want a $500 cat.

He was right and there is not going to be a brother or sister for Teddy.
At least not a $500 one.
I know cats are priceless but…
if  Teddy gets a sibling it will be from a shelter.

Some questions came to mind;
Had this woman never been around a cat before?
If she had been she would have known she was allergic.
If she had never been around a cat what made think she wanted one?
Might have been a good idea to visit a friend who has a cat.
Did she just decide she didn’t want the cat?
Why didn’t she call the breeder?
Most reputable breeders will take a cat back if there is a problem.
Maybe they wouldn’t give the amount paid back but likely most of it.

Two more questions,
Did she really get the cat from a breeder?
How much did she pay?
My suspicious mind wonders if she just wants $500.

Anyway, nothing new, here.

I do feel bad for the kitten.
I hope it got a good forever home.

Today is the day…

I’ve got somethin’ to say
bout Bad Poetry Day
Listen and hear
it’s August 18 every year
Give it a try

See if you can be
a worse poet than me
Do your best

Try as you might
I know I am right
Fer sure I know
I’ll win best in show
Which will be no surprise
since no one else wants to win this prize

Journey to a new world…

The prompt for Five Sentence Fiction this week is:
MAPS

earth-11015_640It has been a long  journey and at last our destination is in sight and a magnificent sight indeed! I was somewhat doubtful that our maps were reliable but the surveyors who were commissioned for this assignment were excellent.” “That’s true, sir,  they were committed to the mission and without their skill and determination we would not be where we are today.”  “Aye, Lieutenant, they had an audacious vision, sense of adventure, and courage to face the unknown; and now we will explore this new world.  I am told the inhabitants of this place call it Earth.”
