NEW CHALLENGE--week of 3-20-2008


Megan stared at the stain, horrified.

She had been saving that blouse for their dinner date. How did it get there?

Megan heard a familiar sound and looked as Dexter stepped through the door. He was carrying his stuffed mouse, but something was wrong. Megan screamed as Dexter jumped up, dropping the mouse on her blouse. It tried to escape, but Dexter was too quick. Another stain started to spread on her ruined blouse.


----------

Megan stared at the stain, horrified.

When was this going to end? It seemed an eternity, and for a brief instant Shakespeare’s Macbeth flashed through her mind. She groaned. The agony of the moment was not lost on her. She wanted that ‘spot’ out. She was nearing exhaustion but the ordeal was not over. She waited.

With a final and deep groan, the ‘spot’ was out. They had a beautiful son.



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

I took Dexter to be a cat, bringing a present to his person. Hope the date likes cats. Interesting shift, and mis-direction, from stain to spot.

Good job! There's no one with kids who probably hasn't experienced the first one! Hope her date liked animals...and kids! :D The second one was very nice...a lot of good writing in 75 words or less! :D

Well done on your first dive into the pool. You swam exceedingly well. Megan #1 definitely needs a new boyfriend. What a different slant on childbirth #2 was. I go all goose-bumpy with stories about babies, loved it.
Loren T. Lowery 21 Mar 2008
Enjoyed both of these, esp. the reference to Shakespeare, I remember sitting through a few performances and wondering the same thing.

Good job on the first dive into the pool. Poor Megan and the blouse. :-( Neat take on the phrase for the second story.

Hi there, Victoria--thanks for jumping right in with both feet! Both of your stories took me by surprise--very, very different takes on the "stain"! Good job!
Tim Pickl 20 Mar 2008
Megan, Megan, the mouse and Macbeth! What a contrast. Excellent writing.
jodie banner 20 Mar 2008
I am surprised at the originality of the entries. I wasn't expecting the 2cd ending.
K. J. Cash 20 Mar 2008
I think you were "spot on" darling with both of these!
Kristen Hester 20 Mar 2008
These are very creative and "out of the box." Great job.
Joanney Uthe 20 Mar 2008
Such creativity. Your first story made me mad. The second made me want to hold that precious little "stain."
