The Cotton Candy

raulconde001

A mother and her two children are at the Youth Fair taking rides. They finish the rides. Afterwards, her kids decided that they are hungry, but for something sweet with sugar. They walk around and spot a person selling cotton candy.

“Can we have cotton candy? Mom, please!” her kids said.

“Okay. Sure!” mom said.

The mother follows her kids to the cotton candy machine. She asked to buy two cotton candies for her two sons. The man who sells them told her that he ran out. The children desperately crying and screaming for cotton candy.

She didn’t know what to do, because her two sons are making a scene in public. She is embarrassed from the whole crowd. She suddenly turns into cotton candy. Her two boys look at her and wanted to eat her.

“No, no, no, no, no, no, no! You’ve got the wrong idea, Brad and…

THE SIMPLE THINGS

Iain Kelly

‘A shoe shop?’ She was incredulous. ‘They had to actually go out to find shoes that fitted, try them on and buy them?’

‘Yes. Some women adored doing it, had collections of hundreds of pairs. The same with clothes, bags, jewellery.’

‘I do like the red shoes she is wearing,’ my daughter mused. ‘Can I scan them?’

I shrugged acquiescence.

She passed her smartwatch over the shoes. ‘I can print them out when I get home and wear them for my virtual date tonight.’

‘Wait, what virtual date? Who with?’ She hurried off to the next part of the Museum of the 21st Century, pretending not to hear me.

At least she was learning, looking at something other than the screens she spent her life in front of.

My wife approached, catching up with us having enjoyed the Fashion Hall exhibit. ‘You remember when you took me to the shoe…

Short Film Review: HE TAKES AND RETURNS

HorrorAddicts.net

Alone in the Dark Films presents HE TAKES AND RETURNS, a 2018 horror short by writer/director Anthony DeRouen. Running time: 11 minutes.

THE PLOT

A family is terrorized by an intruder the night before its trip to Yosemite National Park.

THE PLAYERS

The cast features Joseph Camilleri as John, Nadia Latifi as Chrissy, Jeanne Young as Helen, and Germaine Gaudet as Kathy.

THE REVIEW

HE TAKES AND RETURNS is classic horror in the vein of HALLOWEEN. Like that seminal film, HE TAKES AND RETURNS portrays average suburbanites inside a normal home within a typical neighborhood and unleashes the horror on them.

DeRouen effectively sets the table, opening with dad John, mom Helen, daughter Chrissy, and family friend Kathy engaged in an intense game of Jenga before going to bed early in preparation for the Yosemite trip.

When Chrissy’s first scream shatters the night, John does what fathers do…

FOWC with Fandango — Comfortable

This, That, and the Other

FOWCWelcome to July 30, 2018 and to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). It’s designed to fill the void after WordPress bailed on its daily one-word prompt.

I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (US).

Today’s word is “comfortable.”

Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

Once you are done, tag your post with #FOWC and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Or you can simply include a link to your post in the comments.

And be sure to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this prompt. You will marvel at their creativity.
