Please Don’t Bite

Toby loved his costume until he was chased through a vacant lot by monsters carrying chopped onions and hot sauce.  (114)

 

No Girls Tonight

Rex had hoped for a costume that made him look hot, but this was not what he’d had in mind.  (91)

 

Getting It Right

I told you to hold the mustard! (31)

A Fine Mix

Becoming a DJ was one of my early childhood dreams. Our family always listened to the local radio’s morning show, which was hosted by my uncle. His byline was “a tenth of a ton of fat and fun”. His show was fun and lured a lot of callers. He seemed like a star and this appealed to a shy and chubby child. My roly-poly uncle had plenty of people waiting in line to chat with him. If I became a DJ, maybe that would happen to me.

As I grew older and developed other interests, the DJ dream faded. I regret that sometimes. I have a good speaking voice, can ad lib with the best of them and love music. My inner child must still be clinging to that dream, however. I hear some of the current DJs and think “I could do better than that”. I check out the latest songs online and salivate over the classic Numark DJ mixers. I plan on indulging myself one of hese days. I don’t have to be the star of a radio or dance floor to live the dream.

For The Price Of One

Since I didn’t get to an entry last week, I decided to do double duty this week.

In her first swinging competition, keen skills defeated an older opponent. Future Olympic gold would pale in comparison to this moment. (135)

The thrill of victory. The agony of no feet. (45)

Stop! The restrooms are right over there. (43)

This week’s word was keen

“I started feeling poorly after I ate a bowl of stew.”

“Hmm. Sounds like a classic case of stuporitis.” (103)

 

The word of the week was stupor
