This weeks' topic was to write about a birth, from the opposite gender's point of view. Good luck to all the auditioners! "Mark? Mark! Wake up!" I could barely make sense of her words as I slowly surfaced from a very pleasant dream involving Margie, three cans of whipped cream, and a jar of… Continue reading lfb: mama mia!
Part One | Part Two It was Phase Three of Ernest's master plan to become popular, and things couldn't have been going any better. Armed with his new name (Masta Pud) and his new wardrobe (the pink cashmere sweater did look fine, if he did say so himself), he was on his way to nail down Phase… Continue reading lfb: she likes me! (earnest and masta pud, part three)
Minerva was nervous. She stretched her lips wide, trying to get the lipstick on without smearing it halfway to her ear. Finished, she leaned back and inspected the results. Doable. She supposed. Now she just needed to do something about her hair. At least she still had it, she encouraged herself. She didn't know why… Continue reading lfb: minnie the mouse
"Hello, ma'am, what can I get you today?" I tried to put my best cheerful-I-can't-wait-to-help-you tone in my voice as the next customer stepped up to the counter. She was sort of short, with funky red hair. As she spoke I caught the glint of a tongue piercing to go with the one in her… Continue reading lfb: get it right
"So, how'd it go last night?" The two guys at the table next to me had been there about an hour. So far, they hadn't bothered me much, but as their alcohol intake increased, so did their volume. It was starting to interfere with my work. "Ah, it was okay," said the second guy. "I… Continue reading lfb: the cock job
Loaded for Blog day!! Today's topic was a little vague..."Down on the Farm". Include a mah-jongg tile and an ABBA record. Let me know what you think, I went out on a limb with this one. "Dave!" "What?" Dave's voice was, if possible, even more exasperated than Bonnie's. "Just ask for directions. Please?" "No way,… Continue reading lfb: wrong turn
Ethan nudges me, in a movement that I am sure he meant to be surreptitious, but just ended up almost knocking me from the chair. Right now we're at the bar, just waiting to be seated. It's a special occasion, you know, our anniversary. We decided on this place, because, well, we've never been here,… Continue reading lfb: wrong place, wrong time
She's so pretty when she sleeps, you know? When she's sleeping, I can't see that vague shadow of anxiety lurking deep behind her blue eyes, I can't see her cringe slightly when she thinks we're going to fight, I can't hear her breath catch in fear when I tell her I am headed out for… Continue reading lfb: turnabout’s fair play
THURSDAY! My favorite day ever because tomorrow is Friday! And, because it's LFB DAY! Woot! This week's topic is another vignette: Your character is secretly gay and has to decide how to come out. Enjoy! Mark's hands gripped the wheel as Ben spoke. Ben's tone was even, conciliatory, but Mark still felt vaguely attacked. "Look,… Continue reading lfb: would you like some corn?
What day is it? Thursday! What does that mean? LFB!!! Today's topic was difficult: Woman gets pregnant and won't give the guy a say. The twist this time, was that the LFB ladies had to write from a man's perspective and the men from a woman's point of view. Talk about interesting! It was like a punch… Continue reading lfb: no frickin’ way
