2) I love playing football!

3) I am obsessed with Star Wars!!

 

Q & A:

1) What has been the most unexpected benefit you’ve found in Blogging?

The community support. Not just compliments and suggestions, but the active participation at creating and answering prompts are all amazing things that let me evolve continuously along with the community.

2) What type of jokes do you find funny? Tell one of your favourites.

Any kind of jokes. It is really easy to make me laugh most of the times. I am partial to Double entendres. Here is a funny joke I heard:

My dad sent me to a psychiatrist for wearing his bra again.

If you guys have any jokes or stories revolving around puns, again please share them with me.

3) Would you choose a holiday/vacation to a hot beach or a cool forest?

An island that has both – a hot beach and cool forest.

I dunno if this comes across as a cliché, but I would love to have the book – Robinson Crusoe with me.

5) The Wolf.

 

1) What has been the highlight of your week so far?

Food! 😀 😀

2) What inspires you to write?

The power of words. They can transport you from your reality to a different one. I love writing to transport readers, making them imagine new things.

 

3) If you had to live underground for a month, how would you prepare?

Under the ground? Would probably need to develop night vision! XD

4) What is your favorite word?

Puggles! 😀

5) What is one of your favorite jokes or puns?

Heyyy! This one seems familiar. I’ll give you another funny one I know:

Sarah goes to school, and the teacher says, “Today we are going to learn multi-syllable words, class. Does anybody have an example of a multi-syllable word?” Sarah waves her hand, “Me, Miss Rogers, me, me!” Miss Rogers says, “All right, Sarah, what is your multi-syllable word?” Sarah says, “Mas-tur-bate.” Miss Rogers smiles and says, “Wow, Sarah, that’s a mouthful.” Sarah says, “No, Miss Rogers, you’re thinking of a blowjob.”

Flash Fiction: Unimpressed

It is really irritating when you have a well-traveled, know-it-all husband. He fails to find anything impressive.
“Look darling, a rainbow!”
“Calm down woman. It is not like the first rainbow we have seen, you know.” Sometimes, it makes me feel guilty about being so easily impressed.

Yesterday I finally got a one up on him.
“Come here at the window. Look at the bird out there.”
“You want me to leave the comfort of my couch and walk there just to see some bird?”
“But it is a large white bird and it is coming closer..”
“Nothing special about a huge white bird. I have seen the Andean Condor up close.”
*rumble* *rumble*
“Get away from the window. It’s an earthquake!”
“No darling, it is the white bird.”
My husband got up from the couch and rushed to the window.

The gigantic bird stomping around in the city, left his mouth hanging open for the first very time.

Not unimpressed anymore.

Flash Fiction: Tragedy

Paul checked his location. He had almost reached the target.

Even as a kid, Paul knew his calling lay in the skies. He had aced pilot training just before the world plunged into chaos. Paul never wanted to shoot anyone out of the skies. However, when the fight came to his country’s border he was shoehorned into the air force.

Paul checked his radar, took a deep breath and pushed the button-of-doom. His actions would be called heroic by his countrymen. However, Paul knew what it really was.

A tragedy.

Flash Fiction: The Test

She had never felt less prepared for a test in her entire life. Not a clue about her final test. She needed to be at her best. However, the surrounding gloomy forest was not helping one bit.

Her examiners were leading her deeper into the forest. She did not feel right about the test. She wanted to run back home and hide under her bed covers. She knew that was not an option. Finally, after trudging for an hour through the murky woods, she reached her destination. She finally saw it – her final test. It was an antique car. Grey and red in colour, it looked in great shape other than its wheels. The wheels were not attached to the car. They were placed right next to where they were meant to be. Her examiners pointed towards the car.

“Fix it and drive us out of here.”

She had never imagined this would be her final test.

“I have never driven one before. I was not trained for it.”

The oldest examiner placed his hand on her shoulder.

“Cadet, you cannot train for everything. If you are going to infiltrate the humans, you need to improvise.”

100 Word Wednesday: Bookshelf

I love my bookshelf. Made from pine, it fits the aesthetics of my room. I am quite proud of it because I built it myself.

The bookshelf is adorned with books. Books that told me stories, given me ideas, and knowledge. I have learned a lot about my fellow humans from them. In fact, I love them exactly as they are. Can’t displace even one of them.  You see, if I pick up the one titled Life, the bookshelf opens up to reveal the entrance to my secret lair.

Can’t risk anyone finding the bodies there. Never!
