Writer’s Quote Wednesday, 2/124/2016.

Alright, I was inspired, and going to find a truly awesome quote from someone previously unheard of… then I stumbled across one that was too good to pass up, by a guy that should be known by just about anyone alive, by this point, even if they only know one thing about him. So please forgive me while I quote the first president of the United States. I’ll let you all figure out what the quote could possibly mean in today’s political climate.

“It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one.” – George Washington.

Tuesday’s Tale, 2/23/2016.

Alright, feeling sick, but I’m not letting it stop me today. Five minutes are on the clock, and here we go:

Josh’s arms tightened around her in reflex as she felt something bulge in her throat. She tried to coax it up with her hands, massaging her throat while staring at Josh’s wide eyes.

It worked all at once, the object that was choking her coming up and landing with a small thump on the bed. It was a stone… it was the stone, or it’s twin. Together, whole, and pulsing a faint glow in the room. Pulse pulse, pulse pulse, the gentle seemingĀ  red light washed over them as they stared at each other.

She had to stifle the urge to eat it; to choke it back down and never let it up again. She settled for closing both of her tiny hands over it, letting it’s warmth seep into her hands. One hand grabbed her tail, gently, and the other took an ear.

“Stan is that you?”

“Yes. Before you ask, I don’t know how.”

 

Alright, that’s as far as I got today. Sorry it wasn’t more, but something is better than nothing. See you all next week!

Alright, my quote from the week, and continuing a sort of theme I have going… Another president. This one was the 6th American president we had as well as the son of a president. A tough negotiator, he negotiated the treaty which ended the war of 1812, the annexation of Florida from the Spanish, and drafted the Monroe Doctrine. He also served in government after his presidency, with distinction, as a Massachusetts representative. Ladies and gentleman, I bring you John Quincy Adams:

“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more, you are a leader.” – John Quincy Adams.

Tuesday’s Tale, 2/16/2016.

Alright, another week, and another tale segment. Five minutes are on the clock:

He awoke, still curled into and half buried in the blankets. Josh was beside him, sleeping soundly. But aside from that oddity, something else was wrong. He wasn’t a he anymore; he couldn’t even consider passing for one, not like yesterday.

He… she managed to find the bathroom with a minor amount of stumbling; something seemed to be affecting her balance and knocking into furniture, and sounds were far too loud, scents had too much depth. The mirror in the unfamiliar house wasn’t full-length today, but it was enough.

Her ears were replaced by canine ears, the same deep red hue as her now long hair but with white tips; both matched the color of the large bushy tail behind her, sporting its own white tip. A quick pull revealed the ears were a part of her; glued on appendages didn’t cause such pain. The tail was real too, and with effort, she could direct it.

She smiledĀ and admired the sharp fangs her tongue had found.

She should be freaked out; why wasn’t she freaked out?

She was hungry but breakfast could wait; some imp of the perverse had her, leading her back to bed. She carefully curled back up against Josh and waited… but the joke was spoiled when the hacking started, something in her throat trying to force it’s way up.

 

And there you have it, four minutes, 58 seconds. See you all next week!

So, I was sick and missed a week. Still sick, but I’ll give this a go. I won’t give much of a background on this writer, because I’m going political again and this one needs as little introduction as my last one did. If you don’t know who he is, even if you’re from another country, you should look him up because anything you find on him will be better than my humble homage. Ladies and gentlemen, JFK.

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” – John Fitzgerald Kennedy.

 

Food for thought as people start to vote… and bi-partisan! As always, this is for:
