Since I'm lazy and can't think of posts on my own, I've stolen another writing prompt: "Side of the Road". I can't resist saying something about this fascinating place.
Roadkill is on the side of the road. Well, it's actually in the middle and splattered all over the road. Barf. The vultures feast on armadillo, possum, squirrel, coyote, cow (OK, not too often), cute little bunnies, and unfortunately, the occasional domestic pet. Sigh.
Please don't tell Cat about the last one. He does not understand that is the primary reason he is NOT ALLOWED to go outside. His narrow mind, the size of an English pea, sees things to chase, kill, and eat. My broader mind, the size of a snow pea, sees distracted drivers and hungry bobcats and coyotes. Gulp!
I pondered about the oddest thing I've seen on the side of the road. Hum.....underwear. Ugh. Oh yeah. A funny-looking balloon.
Oh. Evil Twin tells me that was a used condom.
The 30-day challenge that provided me with a few prompts is now over. Oh my. Where will I go for ideas? I noticed that fellow blogger, Lauren, jumped in the middle of the challenge and with a burst of energy made in through the month with some great posts.
