Coffee With Mi

Mi, I toast you with a tumbler of freshly brewed kaapi!

Waiting To Exhale

Mi, I feel low. I am trying very hard to yank myself out of it but sometimes, even I don’t succeed. As evidenced by this post’s title and my 55 fiction which you can read shortly. I couldn’t help it. It simply flowed. I am so used to writing full-of-cheer type thingys that this one surprised me. Ah well. This too shall pass, I suppose. I am patient. I’ll wait.

Okay, I know you hate to wait. Go on. Read.


Waiting to Exhale


She looked serene, asleep. Who knew what heavenly thoughts drifted through her mind! Her favorite music waited patiently with her earphones. She’d suffered a restless night, tossing, turning. Crumpled clothes were proof, with her unopened bottle of cough syrup. Would she ever wake up? But it was her birthday! Well played, Fate! What a prank!

The prompt: Your post should contain the three words, earphones, cough syrup and prank.
Weave a story and try and keep these words a substantial part of the story.

That. Is. All.

Sharing is caring!

  1. Sad! But what creativity Vidya. I could not think of this dimension when I saw the prompts.

      1. Ha ha!! And I am not at all a syrup kinda person. In fact I stay away from any medicines. But its sad how some people use ‘anything’ to take their life off the hook.

  2. Hey Vidya…hope the sad feeling passes away soon…Cheer Up!!

    Great use of the prompts n a very creative 55!

  3. Hugs Vidya!!
    I hope you feel better soon…
    I don’t like cough syrup either and prefer a clove in my mouth!
    Inspired by your 55-word fiction, I wrote 100 words fiction! πŸ˜‰

  4. O! God! This tore my heart apart. But yes a definitely a good 55F

    And i hope you are feeling better now. Even i am going through some tough time out of which i am unable to come out. I even fail to blog and read these days.

    Hugs Vi.

  5. Greetings human, Vidya,

    I hope you haven’t been waiting too long for my eagerly anticipated comment. So let me fill you with some cheer. Have no fear. Penny is here. A rhyming dog. On your blog. How about that. Better than a cat πŸ™‚

    Yes, I ramble. Where was I? Where am I? Oh yeah, nicely done. Nicely done in spite of feeling somewhat less than your usual exuberant self. Thus your verbalisation via the word prompts, it a tonic in its own way. Better than yucky cough syrup.

    I now shall pass back over to my site. Take good care of YOU, human.

    Pawsitive wishes and doggy kisses,

    Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar! xx
