The Lighter Side of JzB

Every day visits*
From Moose, Goose, and Orb Weaver
All seized by Haiku

"Why moose and goose?" you may ask. Back on 2/04/13 Pirate wrote a haiku with an elk in it, and I responded with
one with a moose and then included him every day. A few days later in comments Mystic asked "Where's the goose?"
So I started including her with this post on 2/07. A week later on the 14th, Mark Readfern
asked for and received a spider. The rest is history.

*Well, most days, anyway. Grant me a bit of poetic license.

Five Sentence Fiction

Just what I needed - a new meme.  Well, I will try it out once, anyway.


Late in his senior year, Bob's high school buddies took him to a place where women traded love for cash.

"But," he protested, I have a girlfriend, Marci."

"Marci is an amateur; find out what a pro can do," they said.

Bob climbed the back steps, resolute in his new purpose.

Then he made eye contact with the man coming down the steps, Marci's father.  

Here is a link to The FSF Control Center.


  1. I wonder how that conversation went! Great work!

  2. That's a conversation you wouldn't want to have! Shouldn't think Marci will ever hear of it either!

  3. It doesn't get more awkward than this and I'm wondering who felt it more?

  4. Whoops! Kind of an awkward moment for both of them! Nicely done!

  5. Yikes! Eye to eye with the father is always a scary experience, lol. Nice job ;)

  6. LOL! And I thought that I'M the minimalist. :)
