Here's your next picture challenge to inspire us to write. Write an opening line, paragraph or even a short story to go along with the picture. Perhaps even begin a new novel! Maybe members would like to use these as future tags... just ask the person who starts it if it's ok to use.

Plane, plane

Heading right for my truck
Right where I'am

Run faster than the wind

This would have never happened to my sister. She and her husband have all the luck. No matter what they do it works out- they find all the sales, manage all the discounts, get all the breaks life has to offer. Not me! I can't leave a store without setting off an alarm and bringing the police down on my innocent head. I can't go camping without picking a spot in the middle of a bee hive and having a visit by a grizzly. Surely, thought I, this was not too much to ask. I wanted to drive across this baren land and make it safely to Texas to see my sister. But no- my bad luck managed to find me even here. Who did I make mad up there that they felt the need to employ a plane to re-build my truck? Would a semi or a minefield not have worked just as well?

Hi Saphyre! This is funny and it sounds a lot like my life. :-D There's only one thing I would change and that would be the surely, thought I to surely, I thought only because it sounds more like the way people really talk. That's just me though.

I used 'thought I' to make it sound sarcastic. he's talking about himself and mocking the situation (and his silly assumtion that nothing could go wrong). I origanlly had it the other way, then changed it. But thanks for the suggestion, I'll be more selective or descriptive to next time to make it clear that sarcasm is being employed.

Hey, I just missed the sarcasm, that's all. I do like it though.

Very cute, Saphyre. I like it as "thought I' for the sarcasm, too. The other way, the 'normal' way, doesn't show sarcasm, though it would probably be good to make it a little stronger somehow.

I love your last line. Mine field, huh? Cute. mae
