Weekly Smile for the First of March 2021 #weeklysmile

My smile:

I have made the decision to go ahead and have my books professionally edited so that way they will be ready if my life changes and I can publish them. Right now I have a lot of beta corrections to do and need to stop procrastinating and do it. I am getting the memoir that is already on my blog done as well. It’s small so not as costly. Now I have a good reason to write again. I have a deadline LOL!

Weekend Writing Prompt #198 – Kitsch

Can you Repeat That?

By Tessa Dean March 2021

Lauren was embarrassed as she looked around her grandparents’ house. It was clean, but the furnishings were kitsch. She was bringing her boyfriend, Carl, here for the first time to meet both her parents and her grandparents. She couldn’t imagine what he would think after seeing the house for the first time.

“Wow,” he said. “What a cool house.”

Lauren stared at Carl and asked him to repeat himself.

Beach Party Part 4 (Part 1Part 2, Part 3)

By Tessa Dean March 2020

The sounds of fighting among the teens brought Mr. Rollins downstairs and he admonished them to quiet down and behave or they could all leave right now.

The guys pulled their girls closer and Rhonda Jo just looked at her dad. “By the way, Rhonda Jo, I plan on watching the game in a couple of hours so you will have to move upstairs to the smaller tv set since I intend to watch the game down here.”

“Ok, Dad, no problem. Just let us know when it starts.”

“Hey, Rhonda Jo, when does Winston get back from his family vacation,” Cassandra wanted to know.

“I am not sure, he said they might stay longer and they won’t let him fly home alone since no one is home at his house.”

“Wow that sucks,” Cassandra sympathized with her. This is a lonely summer for you isn’t it?”

“Yes,” Rhonda Jo sat down and drew her knees up to her chin and wrapped her arms around them.

Beach Party Part 3 (Part 1, Part 2)

By Tessa Dean March 2020

Marianne got behind the wheel of her 2020 Chevy Corvette Convertible. It was bright red, just like her hair. Dyed of course. She was born with jet black hair and dyed it bright red. Marianne was their token rich kid. She was spoiled rotten by her divorced parents who were in a contest to beat each other out with who can buy her the most. Charlie climbed in beside her and they were off to Rhonda Jo’s house.

Rhonda Jo, Cassandra and Peter climbed into Peter’s blue 2006 Chevy Pickup Truck. Cassandra was in the middle, next to Peter and Rhonda Jo was on the passenger side. They all had to share the front seat as his truck didn’t have a backseat.

Reaching Rhonda Jo’s they raced into the family room where the huge 105 inch flat screen television was. All the kids liked to watch the television here since it was so large and was hooked up to surround/sound. Rhonda Jo and Cassandra popped up large bowls of popcorn for them to share and they settled down on the large sectional sofa and got comfortable. The monster marathon was just beginning.

Charlie, the monster expert, was immediately engrossed in the move while the others chatted a bit. “Quiet!” he barked out, “I am trying to watch this.”

The others turned and started to watch the movie. It was just getting to a scary part and Cassandra was really jumpy, so when Charlie yelled at her she cowered behind Peter, glaring at Charlie.

Peter turned to Charlie and snarled, “Don’t ever do that to her again, do you hear me? I’ll beat the snot out of you if you do.”

Charlie backed off and now he was the one cowering. Peter could be a real hot head, especially if you messed with his things, including his girlfriend, Cassandra. Marianne shoved Peter and moved close to Charlie. He put his arm around her.

“Yo guys, let’s just watch the movies,” Rhonda Jo said. “If you make too much noise you’ll bring my dad down here and he’ll throw us out.”
