365 days Writing Prompt: The normal

Is being “normal”—whatever that means to you —- a good thing or a bad thing? Neither

To me normal means one is physically and mentally sound. I think if a person is normal it is an excellent thing. Think about the two brothers who bombed in the Boston Marathon, killing innocent people , they were not in the right frame of mind, had they been normal they would not have committed such a horrible crime. 

When I think about normal the battle of Hydaspes River fought between Alexander and king Porus comes to mind. This battle was won by Alexander and King Porus was taken prisoner. Alexander asked Porus how he wished to be treated . “Treat me O Alexander , like a King” Porus responded. Alexander despite his victory asked the king how he should be treated, it shows Alexander was in his normal frame of mind or else he would have ordered him killed. Porus showed he was normal when he gave the appropriate reply.

I like it when everything is normal,the weather,peoples behavior, when I say normal weather,I mean we don’t have snow in July, snow in December is completely normal. 

I visited a store once to look at some of the jewelry on display, I looked at some of them, when I wanted to know what else he had, he turned his back and walked away, this attitude clearly showed his behavior towards the customer was not normal, Would I go back to the store again, absolutely not. This is one of the examples of an abnormal behavior.

Being normal I think is a good thing !

DP Daily Prompt: Unsafe Containers

pad2014-s.png (308×60) Which emotion(s)– joy, envy, rage, pity,or something else — do you find to be the hardest to contain?

Any of these emotions can be hard to contain, but frankly the one I find difficult to contain is rage.

My older daughter once told me that a group of boys cornered my younger daughter during recess and bashed her head against the wall. My younger one did not tell me anything about this incident, it was when my older one was passing by she saw it.

I could not believe that grade one kids could be this horrible, I was a teacher at that time. I got the name of the leader of the group,without wasting time I went to his classroom, they had a substitute that day, I went to the door and asked the teacher to let me talk to the boy. I’m sure he knew why I was there, slowly he came to the door where I was waiting, I asked him if his name was …  he said yes, I warned him that if he ever touched my daughter I’d make sure he’d never do it again!

Writing Prompt: Escape!

Describe your ultimate escape plan( and tell us what you’re escaping from).

He broke in and grabbed the most expensive things in the room. Having achieved his dream,he began to think how would he leave without anyone’s knowledge.

He saw the guard pacing to and fro and  the owners were sleeping soundly. If only he could distract the guard his road would be clear. He made  a quick plan in his head, he’d throw a piece of meat to the sleeping dog,it would start barking, the guard would look sideways for the intruder and he’d put on his magical suit and fly away.

He gave himself a pat on his back for the brilliant idea he came up with in a few seconds. It’s time to execute the plan,slowly and cautiously he tip toed towards the fridge, as soon as he opened it, he heard a clear voice saying,”take care, a thief is here, don’t you fear… the voice seemed repeating, he stepped back and looked both sides to see which way is safe to get out, a faint sound almost froze him, he noticed the kitchen had entrance and exit written all over. What was he to do, he has to escape or else he’d be in jail for the rest of his life.

Would he be able to run away with all this loot, suddenly someone said,”Not on your life you evil one I’d get you and tie a noose around your neck and parade you through the streets showing what we do with thieves.”

Who said that he asked himself, there was not a soul awake, do these guys talk in their sleep, he thought?

Everything about this house was queer, the load of things he had was making him insanely tired. He put them all on the floor and sat down, let me think he told himself, there must be a way to escape.

As soon as he sat down the whole house lit up, people from all directions were coming to get him, he screamed and kicked but the men bound him nice and tight.

His yelling and screaming woke up his parents, they came running to see what’s wrong. they saw him lying on the floor screaming, they are coming to get me, they’ll put me in jail, Mom,Dad help me.

Who will put you in jail, they… No son his mom said, you just had a horrible NIGHTMARE!
