So, after being surly at my paltry 4 points for round 1...

They expected space lasers, and I had a decided lack of them... anyway...) ANYWAY... after round 1, I was like "Well, if I get a good prompt, I'll write. Otherwise, eff it."
My prompt was LAME with a few capital Ls.

Group 101: Mystery, A dairy farm, A pack of seeds.

I've literally had "Mystery/A Farm Field" before. Snooze.
I had NO ideas. And so I actually just ran with that. And I made fun of the competition in general while kinda sorta writing a mystery? After 8 years, I've earned my snark badge. LOL It'll probably only be funny to... you know... everyone here. But I had a blast writing it and my writer's group got more than a few cathartic laughs reading it. It'll probably get disqualified. And I just do NOT care. This one's for going to be for you :)
Title: The Case of the Missing Plot
Synopsis: Sleuthing a mystery in a thousand words is, well…hard. Especially when one has only a dairy cow for a beta reader.


I confess, I have read this story.  And O-M-G if you want a thrill, so will you!.  LAUGHED MY ASS OFF!  Girl, you have got a great sense of humor! I don't want to ever again hear (read) you say that you can't do comedy!  

I didn't post for Challenge 1 -I might post for Challenge 2 just so you can read the SEX in my romance story - LOL

Group 67: Mystery, Ambulance, Pepper Spray

Who Stole the Pepper Spray? 


‘Twas a mystery worthy of Sherlock Holmes:

the case of the pepper spray and the bear who roams.

Mrs. Decker could solve it, if anyone could —

Years of teaching 6th grade had done her some good.

Group 51 Fantasy/Barracks/A monkey 

OPERATION: GORILLA WARFARE


Funny-- the Bible hadn’t described Saint Peter as a gorilla with an M-16, but even the Bible couldn’t have predicted the final evolution of human sin.

I've read this one too -- I take no credit for the genius herein.  READ THIS ONE - Just don't have a drink in your mouth or your computer might end up covered in it.

Wow, what amazing prompts!!! (A taster of the voice that my story is written in...)

Minnie and Dick's Gender Reveal - Take Two

 

Minnie and Dick are having a gender reveal,

A second attempt - the first was quite the ordeal.

Here’s hoping that today goes better than before,

Or no death, at least - is that so much to ask for?
