Walking down the street,you encounter a piece of paper on the sidewalk. You pick it up and read it and immediately, your life has changed. Describe this experience.

While walking down the street, I saw a piece of paper, I became curious when I saw the message was written in Bengali, my mind told me to pick it up. I did. It was meant for anyone who cares to read the contents. I thought I’ve picked it up  therefore whatever is there, means I can take it.

I came home, first thing I did was to unfold the paper . The print was very tiny. I quickly got my magnifying glass and placed it on the paper. It enabled me to read the small print. There were some directions written on it, I was supposed to follow them.

I took the paper with me and started walking, I was told to turn right and walk about twenty yards, there will be another piece of paper on the  street mail box. I followed the direction and found the piece of paper.

This time I saw another set of directions, I began to suspect it to be some kind of hoax but my mind was telling me to keep on moving, there may be something worthwhile waiting for me.

I made up my mind, I’d only follow the street to my right and if I find another piece of paper,I’ll go home. As soon as I turned right, I saw a   lady in a  blue outfit, her back was turned towards me, it was not possible to see her face. Slowly very slowly I caught up to her.

“Hello”! I said.

She turned around and looked at me! I was stunned standing in front of me was my friend, ‘Aziz Fatima’ whom I hadn’t seen for years!

You have 20 minutes to write a post that includes the words mailbox, Bluejay, plate,syrup and ink.And one more detail….. the story must include a dog named Bob.

Sally’s little daughter cried every day, since she saw her friend Samantha’s got a cute little puppy.

All she ever said every day was,  ” Mom, I want a puppy too.”

A puppy her Mom would say but you don’t know how to take care of it, Jenny.”

Jenny would not give up crying so Mom went to SPCA to look for one. “This one is abandoned by his owners, they had named him Bob,  please do not change his name, stick to the name Bob.”

Jenny was ready to call him Bob, “what’s in a name she said, we had to  give him a name, now that he has one we’d certainly call him Bob.”

So the family agreed to call the puppy Bob. Bob had some peculiar habits, whenever the mailman came, he’d jump up to see what was in the mailbox.

His food had to be served on a plate or he refused to eat. One day Jenny and her dog were busy playing in their front lawn, suddenly a Bluejay landed on the fountain and started drinking water. Bob was thrilled he tried hard to catch the bird but it flew away. That evening he was in a bad mood , he didn’t come to Jenny but sat in the corner of the verandah and started sulking.

Jenny wanted to play with Bob, but he was in no mood, Jenny poured a tiny bit of syrup in Bob’s bowl of water to see if he’d be interested to drink it, Bob came slowly and licked it once, he never had sweet water before he was delighted he lapped it up within minutes.

Next day Jenny got a bottle of ink she filled her pen and practiced her writing, Jenny forgot to put the cover on the bottle, well jeepers keepers Bob was in a jovial mood he rushed to Jenny to give her hug,  he toppled the bottle and spilled all the remaining ink, Mom was unhappy when she saw the mess.

Jenny defended Bob by saying, “Mom he’s only a dog he doesn’t know how to be careful!”
