Let It Bleed — Get Moving

EB12507C-E70E-43BB-B8E1-1D7483109378“I am so bored,” Sandy complained to her husband. “It’s a beautiful, warm, sunny day outside and all you want to do is sit around and watch TV.”

Stephen hit the pause button on the DVR. “Is there anything in particular you want to do?” he asked.

“The sunshine today is dazzling,” Sandy said. “How about we load the puppy into the car and take a ride out to some bucolic locale in the countryside?”

“Fine, whatever,” Stephen said, turning off the TV and slowly standing up.

“Fine, whatever,” Sandy said, sarcastically echoing her husband. “Try putting a little zest in your step. Pretend to be the least bit enthusiastic.”

Stephen saluted his wife. “Aye aye, Captain,” he said. “Warp speed, Captain.”

“You are the epitome of laziness,” Sandy said. “Am I going to have to contact a lawyer to represent me in our divorce case?”

“You can be so diabolic,” Stephen said, a knowing smile on his face.

“I learned how to be devilish from you,” Sandy said.4215B217-4445-447F-96FB-9868BE19C4F7“So you’d better get moving before I poke you in your good for nothing butt with my pitchfork.”

Stephen looked at his wife. “You know, you’re a very peculiar woman,” he said.


Written for Paula Light’s Three Things Challenge, where the three things are “shine,” “puppy,” and “echo.” Also for these daily prompts: Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (bucolic), Randomness Inked Let Zit Bleed Challenge (zest), Ragtag Daily Prompt (warp), Your Daily Word Prompt (represent), Swimmers One-Word Prompt (diabolic), and Word of the Day Challenge (peculiar).

Oops. This is a revision. When I first read the Word of the Day Challenge word, my eyes saw “particular,” but when I relooked at the prompt, my brain finally saw that the word was “peculiar.”

    Nice use of all the prompts, even if you did have to revise it.
