Six Word Story #6

Lights dimmed. Curtains unfurled. Shaking knees.

What are your first stage memories? A slip, miss your call, or in awe of the hall? Swag, strut or a falling gut?

Graciously Yours!

Freestyle Writing Challenge ~ Mischief.

I was nominated by Hargun to attempt a free style writing challenge. She has a terrific blog! Do land up there too.

So here are Rules I had to follow:

  1. Open an MS Word document
  2. Set a stop watch or your mobile to 5 minutes or 10 minutes whichever challenge you think you can beat.
  3. You topic is at the foot of this post BUT DO NOT SCROLL DOWN TO SEE IT UNTIL YOU ARE READY WITH A TIMER.
  4. Fill the word doc with as much words as you want. once you began writing do not stop even to turn.
  5. Do not cheat by going back and correcting spellings and grammar with spell check in MS WORD (it is only meant for you to reflect on your own control of sensible thought flow and for you to reflect on your ability to write the right spelling and stick to grammar rules)
  6. You may or may not pay attention to punctuation and capitals. However if you do, it would be best.
  7. At the end of your post write down ‘No. Of words =_____’ so that we would have an idea of how much you can write within the time frame.
  8. Do not forget to copy paste the entire passage on your blog post with a new Topic for your nominees and copy paste these rules with your nominations (at least 5 bloggers).

GOOD LUCK!

Here’s what I managed on the word ‘Mischief’!

Mischief ~ the first few things running across my mind when I think of mischief encompasses ‘Mischief managed’ which only Potterheads will genuinely appreciate, or possibly a dog named Mischief. But that’s just probably because I was discussing dogs and their barkings and whimperings with a friend! 

Let’s get you something more intresting though!

She sat playing with her toys. Her mother was across the floor feet away shelling peas for the next year whole. They were to be refrigerated tonight. Round, succulent balls of green. The little one stared at them, eyes gleaming with mischief. She wanted those. Her toys were boring! She slowly started casting across her toys. The mother looked up. The baby was about to throw another tantrum she thought. She went into the kitchen, to boil the baby’s milk. Before the baby started bawling, she’d feed her and put her to sleep. That way her work get over faster. While the mother was away, the baby slowly crawled across to the bowls full of peas. She settled quietly in front of the bowls. She pushed in a fist to grab a fistful of those. She then withdrew her hand and threw them across the floor. Slowly, they bounced and then rolled all about her. She chuckled! Delighted she did this again. And again. She wanted more of them around her. She flapped her hands on the green balls. She moved her leg to change her posture. Something was bugging her bum. She saw a green ball roll out from benetah her. Her leg tilted the bowl halfway. She looked at it, smiling with a grin almost evil. She reached out to the bowl and tilted it further. All the balls ran out in a hurry!

“Whaaaat?!” her mother said out loud, standing across the hall staring at peas all around!

She stared up at her mother, proud of the work she’d done!

Cosmetics for the Moon?

By 2050 :

Mirror, Mirror on the wall!

Who’s the fairest of them all?

The Moon!


Once upon a time, on a full moon night, somewhere in the West, someone may have spent a night like this :

Husband (relaxing after a long day of work in his balcony) : I love how peaceful the night is. Look at the full moon. It is heavenly!

His peace was interrupted by the sound of breaking glass! He hurriedly got up from his seat.

Wife (peeking out of the window from her bedside) : And there goes another bulb from your basketball court.

Husband : How many times will I have to tell your boy to aim for the basket and not for the lights?

Wife : Change the bulb for him tomorrow please. And he’s your son too!

Flopping back on his armchair, he looked up at the sky in exasperation.

Husband (to the moon) : If only you had been a little brighter, I wouldn’t have to keep changing bulbs then!

And that is when the idea hit him!

Husband : What if we made the moon brighter? What more would our company have to do to prove we indeed are the best in the business?

Meanwhile, here in India, on the same night, the moon smiled down as a young man was being agonized by his girlfriend to fish for the right kind of compliment. The Bollywood-romance stricken, Chetan Bhagat-Ravinder Singh avid reader, was barely wading through.

Boyfriend : Baby, you are so beautiful!

Girlfriend : Don’t you have anything new to say?

Boyfriend (clutching at any straws he could find!) : You’re as beautiful as the full moon!

Girlfriend (looking up at the sky) : The moon? This moon? The moon has black spots! Just look at it. I can’t believe you think I have bad skin. I use Fair And Lovely every day.

She walks off in a huff.

Boyfriend (hassled) : I wish someone gave a Fair And Lovely to the moon too!

Realizing she wasn’t coming back, he hurried to catch up with her!

Little did he know someone, somewhere was planning to do just that!

Jokes aside, here’s what a Swedish cosmetics company has proposed to achieve, if all goes well :

A Sweden-based cosmetics company has proposed a bizarre new method to eliminate the need for streetlights – brighten the surface of the Moon.
The idea is to use materials already on the Moon to lighten its surface. The goal is to reflect slightly more sunlight onto Earth, making the night sky brighter, according to the company’s think-tank Foreo Institute.
A brighter night sky would mean less need for streetlights, which could potentially translate to less electricity usage and thus fewer globe-warming carbon emissions, it said.

“Making the Moon brighter is not something I’ve ever heard of in the geoengineering literature,” said Ben Kravitz, a postdoctoral researcher in the atmospheric sciences and global change division of Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.

Foreo’s claims to have raised USD 52 million for research and testing and a timeline on the company’s website says its first Moon mission is slated for 2020 with new rovers deploying every three years.

Foreo suggests the brightening effect would happen gradually over 30 years, allowing humans and animals time to adjust.

What do you have to say about it? 😉

Graciously Yours!

P.S. : Regardless to say, I do not intend to harm anyone’s sentiments scientifically or cosmetically!

Don’t let me go.

You make my days seem like ages, and my hours seem like minutes.
You flirt all you want, but I sense the pain in your heart.
You are charming and maybe truly my lucky charm.
You make my worries vanish, and my lips smile to the fullest.
You are a rarity, both literally and rhetorically.
You seem to have been with me since ever and to think we  will remain together forever.
And standing by you, with you, for you is as easy as breathing.

And breathtaking.
