What on Earth!

Zing and Zang sat on a porch step, gazing high up into the sky.

“What on Earth!” Zing exclaimed.

“No idea,” replied Zang.

“Earth people are weird,” said Zing.

“Got that right,” said Zang.

“Well, after our latest narrow escape, I guess we can’t say much. Good thing we can teleport. That was a MESS when the Leaning Tower crashed!”


I’m back, but I don’t know for how long. Things are a bit hectic around here, with my son and his wife staying with us. Finding quiet time to write is difficult. They went South this week to be with J’s mom for her birthday, so I have a little more time to myself. I’ve missed being here! I think this is the longest I’ve been away since I started with this prompt several years ago. Good to see you all again πŸ™‚

  1. Hope you’re enjoying having your family with you, though I know how extra people might disrupt the quiet lifestyle we get used to at this age. πŸ™‚
    I’m totally agreed with Zing and Zang. People are apt to do the strangest things for art sake. Near Montreal there was an old dead elm in a field near the highway and one spring an artist decided to tie “leaves” on the tree. He cut out hundreds of leaves from plastic pop bottles and spent days tying them on. Months later there was a storm and the extra weight pulled the old trunk down. C’est la vie.

    1. o have, as you say, the quiet life we’re used to.That’s quite a story, Christine!

      Yes, we are enjoying them. I wouldn’t change a thing, really. But it is really nice to have, as you say, the quiet life to which we have become accustomed.

  2. They’re so right. Earthlings are getting weirder and weirder. Fun story with these two again. I hope you can squeeze some more moments for writing once your family returns. I’ve discovered that once you let the practice slip, it’s a struggle to get back into the right headspace for writing.
