Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked 4 – 6 words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That’s the challenge, here’s a fun twist; no one who’s participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.
At the end of this post you’ll find links to the other blogs featuring this challenge. Check them all out, see what words they got and how they used them.
Sue looked at Ted and said "This is a tried and true old fashioned remedy. The old guy at the hardware store swears it will work."
Ted looked kind of skeptical. It was a unique that was for sure but Ted still wasn't sure this would work. It was a sensational idea if you thought about it long enough. The only bump he could think of was Jasper. What if he got into this concoction and it killed him. Shaking his head he walked away, that was something he did not want to think about.
Old Jasper, good ol' boy, man...Ted had gotten him right after college. Geez, that meant he was what...Ted stopped and glanced over at the dog sleeping on his bed by the bay window. Wow, he must every bit of fourteen years old. Sure couldn't tell it when he was after that dadgum rabbit.
Ted walked into his office and happened upon a book in the floor, laying open. He picked it up. "Farmers Almanac, hmm where did this come from?"
There was a tap at the window. He glanced up and screamed, like a girl I might add.
Sue came running into the study, "what, what is it?" she yelled coming into the room.
There stood Ted, still as a rock, eyes glazed over, mouth hanging open. He was staring towards the window. Sue turned and looked, she saw it, that damned rabbit again. HOW he was on the window sill she did not know nor care. She took off for the kitchen, she was determined to finish this concoction and watch that hair ball choke on it if it was the last thing she ever did.
Ted sat down behind his desk sometime later. Scratching his head he wondered just how the rabbit had gotten on the window sill and was he the one who put the book on the floor? Opening the almanac to the page ear marked he read, "
- Make a bad-tasting rabbit cocktail by grinding together three hot peppers, three large onions, and one whole bunch of garlic. Add water to cover, and place into a covered container overnight. Strain, and then add enough additional water to make a gallon of the mixture. Spray onto plants, repeating after rainfall. Commercial products using pungent garlic oil are also worth a try.
It was high lighted...how the? He looked around and there it was. A highlighter on the floor.
So the rabbit knew about the concoction, but did he know she also put diphacinone in it.
Leaning back in his chair Ted thought, this is one smart rabbit, what if we didn't get rid of it. What if it is some super species, an alien, or what if animals really can communicate and he is trying to tell us something.
"TED!" oh dear lord he almost fell backwards in his chair hitting the floor, startled to say the least he looked up. "yes dear, what can I do for you?"
Sue said, "well for starters you can tell me why I called you three times without any acknowledgment and why you are just sitting there doing nothing?! Aren't you supposed to be on a conference call right now?"
