Daily Prompt : Roots

In response to daily post’s one-word prompt : Roots

 

Jane and Matilda sat on the Roots of the tree,

Laughing and yelling about Rhonda with glee.

Said Jane to Matilda, ‘did you see how cross she was?’

Matilda replied, I  can’t believe she yelled at our boss!’

Meanwhile Rhonda was boycotted by her friend,

Who thought she was crazy and needed to mend.

While talking about Rhonda the girls noticed,

How curly like a snake the Roots Looked!

Daily Prompt: Groupthink

Write a post that includes dialogue between two people– other than you. (for more of a challenge, try three or more people.)

Parker, Tom and Howard were busy talking. I stood in the background to find out why they looked so serious.This is what I heard.

Tom: Parker, did you see our boss this morning?

Parker : No what’s up?

Tom: I have some doozies to tell you about.

Parker : Really what can be so amazing?

Howard (joins in ) : I want to know too, it’s always fun to find out about our boss, especially, how does he spend all that money he’s making.

Tom: Howard, you are so nosey, do you always have  to butt in and say your piece, some people!

Tom : Well I was walking along the road, minding my own business, suddenly I heard a car whiz by me, it was our boss, I had a quick glance and saw a lady seated on the passenger’s side, she wasn’t the missus.

Howard :Who was it?

Tom : Will you stop asking questions,Howard?

Parker: Who was it Tom ? I’d like to know too!

Tom : I’ve heard it on the grapevine the boss and his missus are not getting along, so she’s out of town somewhere.

Parker and Howard: WOW, don’t they have children?

Tom : I’ve heard they have a son, he is sent to a boarding school.

Parker: Well, well this is some news.

Howard: Are they getting a divorce?

Tom and Parker: Howard do not jump to conclusions!

365 days Writing Prompts:Childlike

Explain your biggest regret__ as though to a small child.

I have spoken to children as part of my job, they were curious ready to learn, which made my job easier.There was a boy named Mark in my class, he was a very talkative child once I told him to go back to his seat, in reply he said, “Why?”

I said:  “because I’m telling you to do so.”

Mark was in a playful mood that day, he repeated again: “why?”

It seemed he wanted to linger on to see what my next move would be, this time I said, “I’m your teacher, you must listen to me.”

Not willing to give up, he said: “but you’re not my boss, are you?”

I smiled and told him: ”  in this classroom I’m your teacher and your boss.”

He smiled back and replied: “okay I believe you, now I’ll go back to my seat.”

I did not have any regrets but I was curious to know what else he’d come up with, it was a friendly dialogue which the rest of the kids also enjoyed.

I have learned , you cannot depend on anyone.

I have learned,even if you cover your gray hair,your face will reveal your age.

I have learned “slow and steady”,doesn’t always win a race.

I have learned children hardly tell a lie.

I have learned two plus two equals five,if you are the “BOSS”.

Malta is a group of islands in the Mediterranean sea.The terrain is low and rocky with coastal cliffs.

Malta ,in the heart of the Mediterranean is a melting pot of civilisations with a history stretching

back thousands of years. The country has been inhabited since around 5200 B.C.a significant prehistoric

civilisation existed on the islands prior to the arrival of the Phoenicians, who named the main island Malat,

meaning ‘Safe Haven.’ Later the islands were for centuries the seat of the ,’Knights of the Hospital of St. John’

and then part of the British Empire.Malta became independent in 1964.

The national language is Maltese,which is part of the Semitic language family that includes Arabic.English is also

recognised  as an official language, and many Maltese speak Italian. The capital of Malta is Valetta. At the crossroads

of the Mediterranean, half-way between Europe and North Africa lies the Maltese archipelago, consisting of three main

islands, Malta(the largest) Gozo and Comino. Gozo the second largest is more rural,characterized by fishing ,tourism

and agriculture,Comino is largely uninhabited.

We arrived in Malta from Heathrow,London.We represented twenty-three different countries. We were received by Maltese officials. Later we were taken to apartments rented for us by our university.I shared the apartment with two students,one was from Malaysia and the other was from Japan,Zakiah Ibrahim,Yukiko Adachi and Chaman. We went to three different schools for our teaching practice.

I loved the children I taught. We stayed in school for the whole day.We came back late afternoon. Zakiah took over as the boss.Our duties were divided by her. I was in charge of breakfast,we had lunch in our respective schools,Zakiah was in charge of supper. Yuki did not have to cook. she was given the duty of washing the dishes after supper.

She was a lovely person,when it came to doing the dishes,she left it for later. In the morning I would wake up and find the dishes in the sink.I had no choice but to wash them.Yuki would in a drowsy tone apologize and say:’ Chaman just wash enough for breakfast.’I washed them all and this is the way it went. Zakiah reminded Yuki of her duty,it didn’t matter,she in her sweet Japanese accent would apologize and promise to take care of her duty.Nothing changed,she continued to be in her land of dreams, while Zakiah and I took care of the rest.We spent a month teaching and sight-seeing whenever possible.The weather in the month of June was fabulous,it was a treat for us.Let me tell you London wasn’t great as far as the weather goes.
