Project 313 – Post No. 143

It’s Labor Day . . . and I don’t feel like laboring. OK, so I’m writing this a few days earlier, but I don’t want to spoil the illusion of these being “hot off the press!” 

Anyway, here are a couple of choices for something more substantial to read. The FIRST is an opinion piece about luxuries. It’s one of my Sunday posts so it almost counts as it being a holiday post. 

SECOND and THIRD are a single story written in Second Person but from two different POVs; one from the guy’s perspective and one from the woman’s perspective. Yup; is fiction, so feel free to pass. 

Regular readers have already read them so these are here just in case someone is desperate or needs an example of Second Person narrative. It offers interesting challenges. 

I seldom go back and edit my old fiction pieces so those are presented as written.

And now, the photo:

Another Lava Wall offering. They sure are interesting when processed a certain way . . . to me, at least. 

I used to watch Jeopardy and a few other shows. For a while, I watched Who Wants to be a Millionaire. It always looks easier when sitting at home. 

It’s easy to feel smug at home because we’re not risking anything. Imagine, however, if multiple millions of people could hear you give the wrong answer  . . . plus having it immortalized in the digital sphere and beamed out into space for an ultra-smart alien civilization to receive and watch. 

Now, that’s a lot of pressure.

And now . . . Watermelon Wheel In A Starless Night Sky.

Watermelon Wheel In A Starless Night Sky

And . . . that’s it

Some of these posts will likely be longer as the mood hits me, but most will be thus; short, uninteresting, bland, and relentless.

  1. There used to be a quiz show in UK called “Bullseye”. It was based on scoring at darts and answering questions correctly. Whenever a team (one darts player, one quizzer) failed to get the jackpot, the compere finished the show with the line “Let’s have a look at what you could have won” and then revealed the hidden prize that they had been playing for. Cruel!

      It would have been even crueler if they’d had two set of prizes . . . one the players could have won and one much, much better they only showed if they didn’t win.

      But, I agree . . . to a point. The players probably participated voluntarily (even competed for the chance) so it’s actually a form of masochism.


  2. I vividly remember the laboring when I was birth-in’ my kids! :o I don’t want to do that labor ever again! ;-) :-D
    PHOTO: I see a dinosaur! And a baby alligator!
    CARTOON: I always liked those shows you named. Currently I’m not watching any game shows. Not sure why. Poor Willy!
    DOODLE: Your watermelon wheel always brings smiles!
    HUGS!!! :-)

      Thank you, Carolyn.

      I can’t even imagine giving birth . . . not that I’d want to, to begin with.

      Lots of shapes in all the lava walls.

      Nor I; hardly any television at all, really.

      It’s a unique concept. Not practical, of course.

    Your lava rock photo shown in landscape is more impressive than in portrait. Interesting. Love the brown frame.
