Despite the rain
I will walk slowly by your side
because you’re holding my hand,
and I never want to let go.

A Serious Joke

Pauly’s nerves threatened to cause his dinner to reappear as the tip of the knife pierced the skin on his throat.

“You couldn’t tell a joke if your life depended on it, could you?” the Master of Ceremonies asked.

Pauly should have known better than to enter Richard Bachman’s “The Funny Man” contest.

***
“Joke” is the one-word prompt on The Daily Post.

The Chronicles of Mary, Part 6 (A 50-word Story)

Being praised makes Mary uncomfortable. So when Mr. Johnson, Mary’s new boss, called her into his office to pay her a compliment, she quit on the spot. After three days of anxious idleness, Mary found the courage to return, smile confidently, and accept Mr. Johnson’s praise. Mary is still unemployed.

Praise is The Daily Post one-word prompt.

Hell’s Kitchen

“Barnaby! You burnt my steak again!”

“But Sir… you won’t turn the grill down.”

It all started with a fortune cookie: buying the lottery ticket; winning the jackpot; getting on the rocket, then landing on the moon… If she’d have shut up about that damned fortune cookie, we might not have left her there.

Amusing, a 50 word story

“I’m not here to amuse you,” she said as she unbuttoned her blouse.

He lay on the bed regarding her silently.

“Which side do you want?”

No answer.

“Okay, I’ll choose.”

When she reclined, he made his move.

“Stop licking my face, or I’ll replace you with a real man.”

 

JusJoJan the 30th – An- (#SoCS)

Antoinette Ant thought to write an anthology. Her fellow ants told her, “You can’t do that! You’re just an ant!” But Antoinette replied, “Ah, but I am a French ant! And I am also the Aunt of the King!”

So Antoinette bought a typewriter. She wrote of feats unheard of, where gallant ant warriors heaved seeds, and dead wasps that wouldn’t even fit through the door of the castle, and rocks the size of pebbles to build the greatest homes in the land. And then she sent her anthology off to be published.

And she waited.

And she waited.

Until one day Antoinette heard back from a publishing house that was interested… in her warriors. For a cat had knocked down their house.

JusJoJan the 23rd – Odd/Even (#SoCS)

The first time he proposed I wasn’t ready, so I said no.

The second time he proposed I said no because I hate even numbers.

Now I don’t think he’ll propose again. I want him to but I can’t tell him because that will curse our marriage, according to my mom’s superstition.

Why can’t a guy just understand me for once?
