Wordzzle 69 - Mr. Obvious says "Insert Joke here."
You should know the drill by now. Check out the Raven's Nest for all the other stories.
The Ten Word Challenge: Chorus line, clam chowder, apples, jack-in-the-box, puddles, Iran, quarry, housekeeping, speed, letter
The mini challenge: motorcycle, grandiose, summer, flying off the handle, blue jays
I'm feeling slightly overcooked here in Phoenix this week with the daily temps in the 105 - 110 range. These are actually normal summer temperatures, if you can believe that. The weather has made me lazy and unambitious. That being the case, the chance of a grandiose episode coming from my brain this week is slim.
Instead, I've opted for this literal speed letter. This course of action should allow me to do some temporal housekeeping, put my thoughts in order like the dancers in a Chorus line on Broadway and take time out to watch the Toronto Blue Jays put it to the Diamondbacks again in an afternoon game.
I may be flying off the handle a bit in search of literary quarry, but the truth is, I'm just not that into it this week. So excuse me if I take a side trip of the mind and you find yourself stuck in my motorcycle sidecar of ennui.
Perhaps it's the depressing news from Iran, some bad clam chowder from last night's dinner, or mud in the puddles of my cranium, cause I just can't get into the work of storytelling right now.
If you want, blame in on all the bad apples in our lives. You know the one's I mean. Those moron's who invented "I'm a celebrity, get me out of here" or the geniuses that have polluted my mind with that damn Jack-in-the-Box commercial featuring dancing midgets in cowboy getup.
Can you really blame me for losing it every now and then?
Have a great weekend!
