In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “S/he Said.” So for this post we were encouraged to ask our friends what was on their minds and write something around that. I did it, they responded, and here you go. Names are changed to protect privacy 🙂
Elizabeth was going nuts! How on earth was everything gong to get done this week, dance recitals, sport practices and 1 child was feeling sick. Oh Calgon take me away was her thought!
Violet was sitting on her porch swing resting and enjoying the beautiful Spring evening. She saw the bungee cord laying in the yard and was contemplating if she really was doing the right thing. Was she crazy for agreeing to go with her friend Larissa tomorrow to go bungee jumping?? Had she lost her mind? But hey life was for adventure, right!
What on earth, why is the neighbor’s goat in her yard again! It is a nice goat, and usually doesn’t bother anything, but it sure likes to wander around. Wait a minute that’s not grass that it is chewing on. OH NO, that is her bungee cord!! She jumped off her swing and ran into the yard just in time to see the last little bit of the cord disappear into its mouth. How oh how was she going to explain this one to her dear neighbor??? But maybe its a sign. Maybe she should be reconsidering going on that bungee jump. Who says that you can’t learn things from a old goat? “Hey, who are you calling a old goat?” Larry asked her as he walked out onto the porch. Oops, she didn’t realize she had been talking out loud! Violet laughed and took Larry’s hand as she said, “I am calling the goat a old goat and you will never believe what I am about to tell you, but first we need to make a visit to our neighbor!”
So was that exactly how things happened,wellll…..writers can embellish right 🙂 BUT the question is did the goat really eat the bungee cord???
