I found a set of writing prompts called “Year of Writing Prompts” by WritersDigest.com and thought … um…I keep saying I want to write more but sometimes I have a hard time trying to come up with topics to write about and thought…okay here I go…so I missed all of January and here it is the 5th of February already so time is going by…
…the prompt for today is Poor Cell Phone Reception
You’re talking on your cell phone while driving into work one morning. All of a sudden your signal gets crossed and you start picking up another conversation. What is said in that conversation?
My mind was racing as I drove down the road in the pouring down rain but I had calls to make. The first call on my list was to the florist to order flowers for a dear friend who had just lost one of her fur babies. My heart was heavy and being 2000 miles away I thought flowers would be a little something to let her know I was thinking about her. The call was answered promptly and as I was explaining the situation to the gal on the other end of the phone static started coming through and all of a sudden the phone went dead and then all of a sudden I was connected again, or at least I thought I was. I started talking about the flowers I wanted in the arrangement when all of a sudden the gal turned into a guy and he started yelling at me “Lady you called the butcher shop! We don’t do flowers here!!! Why would you call the butcher to order flowers??” I started stammering and crying…butcher…no I wanted flowers…now what was I going to do…and then the phone just went dead!!!
Pretty lame writing I think…so who would you have been calling and where would the call end up?
