A story from Thursday, May 30, 2013

The Sandman

I begged until he released me. He warned a nightmare if I didn’t return. I ran to the loo, peed, then, true to my word, went back to sleep.

    Von, this is cute. It would seem the older I get the fewer threats I get. The Sandman must be getting used to me by now.

    We’ve all been in that situation, Von! Good idea for a quick story you can capture in so few words. Well done.

    LOL – LIke a master, Von! Let the reader beware for making any assumptions about the story behind the story!

    The nightmare being a wet bed, I imagine 😉 Been there, done that! Those 3 AM pees are never fun, but oh so necessary sometimes. Great job, Von!! ~Mysti

    Thanks Judy and Mysti! Oh God, those 8 AM pees really do suck. I’m so glad the story, dare I say, resonated. :)

    Kat, thanks so much for reading it. And I’m glad it made you smile–my sense of humor can be odd at times. 😉 I’ll have to post a 140 prompt in the cafe at F2K.

    LOL! Tom! I’ll have to remember that. :) You should give 140 a try. With your wit, you’d do great.

    Nice one, Von! 140 characters ain’t easy.

    Thank you, Milo. They are great fun to play around with. There ARE some 140 geniuses out there. Most of mine end up balled up and tossed. This one escaped. :)
