shaking, I sit here
another bad dream
will this ever end?
And as my eyes spring open
And my dream fades
What is the message?
The longest day of my life was…
When I spent the night in O’Hare airport! Oh my god was that a long night!
My flight had gotten grounded due to the snow, it was Christmas time and I was visiting my partner Jess in Illinois.
I had to wait in a room all night! I guess I was lucky I had a room to wait in!
However I was on my own for the majority of it as the staf went off duty at 10 pm!
I didn’t sleep a wink! Instead I was on my phone texting Jess all night!
Being blind and alone in a big airport was so scary!
I never want a repeat of that again!
To top it off, when I finally did get on the plane the next morning, they never put my luggage on so I had no bag when I got to my destination!

The fading sun
As it goes behind the clouds
For another day
Welcome to the Three Things Challenge. Every day at 10PM (PST) I will post three seemingly unconnected things that will, hopefully, ignite your muse. You
don’t have to use all three things if you don’t want to. There are no restrictions on length, style, genre, or anything. Simply read the prompt, see where
your muse takes you, and bring us along for the ride. Use 3TC as a tag if you’d like and link back to this prompt, or post your link in the comments below
so others can find you.
Today’s prompt: surgeon, Chicago, doorknob
The surgeon lived in Chicago. He loved where he lived. He worked in a leading hospital, and he loved his job. He saved peoples lives every day, what could be a better job than that!
He had gone down to the hospital café to have breakfast. He sighed happily as he sipped his coffee! Suddenly the doorknob turned and another surgeon walked in.
Hurry, hurry he said! Your needed upstairs!
Quickly they both left their cups on the table and rushed out of the room!
I delight in the small things!
I feel delighted that my pain levels have decreased! I am so happy!
I delight that I have my dog, who brings me so much comfort. He is my world. Where would I be without him?
I made myself a coffee, I delight at the smell of it.
I delight in laughter, watching a comedian on tv.
I think its time I payed more attention to self care, its time I delight in all that is good, and emotionally healthy for me.
I delight in the fact its the weekend! I love my weekends!
I also delight in the fact that my friend helped me to do an assignment for college! She’s so awesome for helping me with it! I would have been so lost otherwise.
Now all I need to do is write out my notes for my presentation! Which she said she’d also help me with!
I am so thankful for good friends! Its such a delight to have such great friends.
I’m happy tonight. I delight in that fact.
He stood with his hands folded. What to do now? Everyone knew. Everyone had him figured out.
Or so he thought. They all knew what a charlatan he was. Now what would he do? How would he go on?
Just as he was contemplating what he should do and what he was going to say when he went back inside, a car rounded the bend, and smash! It was all over!
Welcome to the new Story Starter Challenge!
Every day I will post a new sentence prompt. Use the provided sentence somewhere in your post. It can be a starting sentence, closing sentence, anything you choose. Read it and see where the sentence takes you.
Sitting on the front porch.
mary and sean were sitting on the front porch drinking coffee, and putting the world to rights.
What a glorious day it is, said mary!
Yes, about time it warmed up, sean mused.
They had coffee almost every day, and they would sit and chat about all sorts of things, about their days, their lives, the news, anything that took their fancy!
Today Sean was happily listening to mary chattering on about her new kittens!
That was until…until the sky turned black, and clouds started to form…
Oh no, sean cried! There’s a storm acommin!
Quick, mary shrieked, lets get inside!
So leaving all talk of cats aside, they rushed indoors, and just in time!
It began to bucket down just then!
