3 things challenge

Todays prompt: chemistry, blanket, mailbox

wrapping her arms around herself like a blanket
walking out into the cool brisk air
she walks to the mail box
softly singing a tune
would it be there?
The letter from him?
would she feel the chemistry between them
When she picked it up
And read the words?
She skipped lightly down the sidewalk
And when she got to the mailbox
to her huge surprise
Instead of the letter she’d been expecting
There he was
Tall dark and handsome
Gosh he was so handsome
There he was
Waiting, and as they embraced
He smiled, she smiled
The happiest smile
On earth

Have fun!


staring blankly ahead
numb, disengaged
numb to everything
everyone around her going on with life
as she sits and tries to breathe
rapid heartbeat
shallow breath
feeling so unsettled
unstable, the instability is the worst thing
she hears others voices
sees them in front of her
they try to engage with her
but she cant engage with them
she cant speak
for if she does
a torent of tears
will escape her eyes
slide down her face
why? why is she so sad?
haunted by memories
memories of horrible things
in her past
the memories, last
unable to stand them now
not for another minute
so she somehow starts to try
to distract
to engage her mind
as time ticks by
ever so slowly
and she ponders
is it going to be like this forever?

Homemade halloween costumes!

As a child all of my Halloween costumes were homemade. We never had a bought costume, not that I can remember. I pretty much always dressed up as a witch, years ago well I was born in the 80’s, but in the early 80’s all of the kids I knew either dressed up as a witch or a ghost, there wasn’t a lot of imagination put into costumes back then. We still had fun though. We were kinda poor, so mostly we wore black bags as dresses, you know like bags you’d use for rubbish? No one bought costumes, we did buy a mask though, but those were cheap, it wasn’t like today, where everyone wears make up and paints their faces. We had a witches hat, a black refuse sack, and maybe a mask, and we went trick or treating like that. Even when we would go trick or treating, we’d only get fruit, or monkey nuts, no sweets, or money or crisps like the kids get nowadays. I remember getting tons of apples, grapes, oranges, etc. And of course nuts, nowadays they don’t really give out fruit, or nuts. Due to allergies, nuts are pretty much a big fat no no nowadays. I also heard that the sweets they give out nowadays have to be wrapped, in case of poisoning, or some other mishap. Its gone pretty much over the top nowadays! But back to costumes. I prefer homemade ones. Do you? Was your Halloween costumes as a child homemade? Or did you have store bought ones?
