The Longest Train Ride
I’m sat on the floor of the carriage, and the train is now thundering along the tracks. My owner has either forgotten or abandoned me. I thought he had just gone to the bathroom, but it has been over an hour now and he has not returned. And now I was worried. What was beneath my brown paper packaging?
I couldn’t take my eyes off the chocolate cake, or rather the one slice of it that remained. It had been my little brother's birthday cake, how was I supposed to know a slice of it would be poisonous for dogs? Nobody had told me that, it’s not fair that I should get in so much trouble. Especially considering how upset I am, Jack was my best friend, not mum and dad’s.
The Crazy Dude and the Barn
I had so much work to do for my university dissertation, and I really should start doing it, but it was such a nice day that I managed to “persuade” myself that I deserved some chill time first, just to clear my head before getting started. I lived in the countryside and there was this nice field not far from where I lived. Nobody ever went there, making it perfect for just laying back and chilling out. I was nearly at that field now and couldn’t wait to just lie back on the nice soft grass and watch the few clouds in the sky pass overhead.
In the Dark
The ground has finally stopped shaking. Wow, that was close. I should open my eyes. Wait, they are open. I'm opening and closing my eyes, but all I'm seeing is the same thing, absolute darkness. What the heck?
The Library of Feelings
Wow, what a blast of heat, heaven help me the sun was already starting to rise. If I took the underground route I would never make it into the library in time. And I had to make it in time, even now all I could do was dream of my yacht drifting on the horizon, the storm clouds brewing overhead. I was a woman at sea, but only if I made it in time.
Let Your Colours Be Free
Some people see the world in black-and-white, some people see the world in the colours of the rainbow, some people see the world in all its strife,
Write It down
An idea, the path that leads to the light, a rainbow of red, a rainbow of blue, a rainbow of green, of every colour in between,
How the Word Pussy Came to Mean a Cat, Cowardly, and Female Genitalia
This is my entry into the uncommon knowledge competition, and it is one of those random posts which came about in the most random of ways, I was speaking to a friend from the LGBT community, and for some reason or another, I have no clue what reason, the subject of the origins of the word pussy came up. Why does pussy mean a cat, female genitalia and basically a coward/wimp?
