In response to daily Post’s prompt: Unpredictable
Device : Acrostic
Unstable is our dollar
No one knows it better
Perhaps its rise will be swift
Rest assured be not miffed
Each day my faith grows
Do be objective everyone knows
I believe what goes down must come up
Can you please try and cheerup
There is no other way but be an optimist
And stay away from a pessimist
Best way to handle it, is sing and dance
Let the government have a chance
Erratic loonie will come out in flying colors!
Lily and Lana were twins, they were not like your average twins,each one had a different set of values they were raised by their parents, their mom taught from their infancy about the do’s and don’ts of life.
It was peculiar to note, Lana who was a few minutes older, was so considerate and helpful, while Lily gave no importance to those attributes they carried no importance to her, she had a very queer personality. She did not like any of her sister’s friends, in her opinion they were not worth hanging out with.
As days went by the sisters drifted apart, their parents tried to figure out what went wrong, it seemed it was a puzzle they could not solve.
Then one day something happened, which seemed like magic to the parents and Lana, Lilly came home with gifts for everyone and they were expensive, she hugged her sister and her parents and continued to apologize for her unacceptable behavior, Mom stood in the corner and thought, “Wow she really is unpredictable!”
Last time I broke a rule was in college. We didn’t mean to but circumstances made us do it. There were four of us, we got permission from our teacher to watch a movie in the movie hall. The condition was we had to have a chaperone with us. My classmate said her aunt would go with us. We were ready and waiting for the aunt to show up. After almost an hour my classmate got a note saying the aunt was unable to go.
Since we were ready and waiting by the college gate we made up our mind to go. We were not sure of one of the girls who was unpredictable. We clearly told her we’d be going without the aunt,if it was okay with her. She promised it was.
We set off on the assumption that things would work out.It was a very hot day,we waited for an auto rickshaw,and got one after walking a few yards. We reached the movie hall,got our tickets, and sat down to watch the movie. Everything went well. We came back happy we managed to watch the movie without the aunt.
Back in our dormitory we found the unpredictable girl restless. We asked her,what was wrong. She said nothing. We went about doing our work. Suddenly one of us was called by the teacher. We didn’t know why. Soon we found out the said girl went and told the teacher we’d gone without a chaperone. We were summoned one at a time and chastised for breaking college rules.
Then she told us to assemble in the auditorium. Sister Joseph Mary was livid. She said everything she could think of. She praised the girl for being honest. We were angry.We were not in trouble,but we learned an important lesson,not to trust the girl anymore!
