The Birthday Party Part 5 (Part 1Part 2Part 3, Part 4)

By Tessa Dean January 2021

Wayne came to the door to see what was going on between Thomas and Joseph. He and Jimmy had all been at Joseph’s house watching the daily boxing workout that they hoped was making their bodies more toned. Although watching the show and doing the workout were two different things. In order to actually tone their bodies they would have to do the exercises they were watching. None of them seemed to get that point.

Wayne sees Joseph flat on his back and Thomas is poking him with each word of his threat. Wayne called Jimmy over to watch the action as if it were a comedy routine. They both were laughing. Neither was listening to the words that Thomas was saying to Joseph so neither of them realized he was talking about them all.

Thomas said he was sick of all the nonsense and jokes they liked to pull on each other. He didn’t find them funny and this last one had really hurt. Ginny was important to him and just because they didn’t have girlfriends didn’t mean they could just make fun of him and try to mess up his relationship. He was serious about Ginny and had to admit to himself that after tonight he was falling in love with her and he could see what a wonderful mother she would be to their children.

Thomas stopped poking Joseph and stood up and glanced at the other two. He didn’t know if they were in on this last prank Joseph had pulled, but they were part of all the other ones. It was time to look for new friends. Ones that had girlfriends so they could do things together occasionally if Ginny was agreeable.

Thomas looked at all three of them standing there watching him and said, “I have had it with all the pranks and childish behavior. What Joseph did tonight, with or without you, was the final straw. We are no longer friends. Stay out of Ginny and my lives.” He turned on his heel and left.

The three boys behind him were still laughing, while Joseph was rubbing his rib cage from all the poking. “What’s up with him?” Wayne and Jimmy asked. Joseph looked away and didn’t answer. He hadn’t told them what he had done. It was his prank and because of him Thomas wouldn’t be friends with any of them. He knew it wasn’t fair, but if he told them he might lose all of his friends. As long as Thomas didn’t say anything else, no one had to know what happened.

“It’s nothing man. Just a little prank I pulled on Thomas and he got seriously mad about it. It will probably blow over eventually. Just stay away from him for now. Plus I think we need to tone down those pranks we are always pulling. Thomas was right about one thing, sometimes they do hurt someone.”

Death Notices Necessary

By Tessa Dean January 2021

Betty had a tenacious grip on her boyfriend. She was afraid he would find someone else. She had to know where and when he was going to be at all times. Heaven help him if something held him up, making him miss a date with her. There were no acceptable excuses.

The day John’s mother died, he was late for dinner. She refused to accept his excuse until he brought the death notice.

The Birthday Party Part 4 (Part 1Part 2, Part 3)

By Tessa Dean January 2021

Thomas proudly watched Ginny as she sat on the floor and played with his brother Anthony and his new toys. He had been so quick to doubt her when his friends told him things about her. However, here she was playing with his little brother and she looked absolutely beautiful in her soft pink sweater that outlined her perky breasts. Breasts that he knew were real and not stuffed. He blushed a little as that thought crossed his mind as if anyone else knew what he was thinking.

Thomas thought about his friends. They set him up to be upset with Ginny. Lied to him about her asking them to go to the charity ball with them rather than come to Anthony’s party. He was embarrassed over his thoughts. How could he think that Ginny would do that to him. She was a sweet girl. His friends were probably jealous that he had lucked out and that Ginny had chosen him to be her boyfriend.

His thoughts returned to Joseph. Joseph had said that Ginny had asked him and that he said no and that Wayne had said yes. Wayne probably knew nothing about the whole situation. Joseph seemed to be the one starting the trouble here and that he would use our other friends to make the situation worse just showed how useless he was as a friend. He didn’t want friends like that.

Thomas glanced at Ginny who was now rocking Anthony to sleep. She looked so natural with a baby in her arms. Maybe one day she would be rocking their kids to sleep. His mom came and got Anthony to take him to bed. Ginny got up and came over to where he was sitting on the couch and had been watching them.

“He’s adorable. I want to have a little boy like that one day and a little girl too,” she said. Thomas smiled at her and hugged her close.

***

After Ginny left, Thomas headed out to Joseph’s house. When Joseph opened the door, Thomas pushed him hard and he landed flat on his back. He used his finger to poke him to get his message across. “I don’t ever want to see you around me again. You are not my friend. You tried to start something between Ginny and I and I don’t appreciate it. Ginny is my girlfriend, got it?

SHARE YOUR WORLD 1-11-2021

SYW Artic Ice

Welcome to Share Your World!  

Melanie’s Rules:

I will post four or five different questions each week for you to answer.  There are two ways which you can participate.

  1. Create a Share Your World post.  Then post the link to that blog post or leave your answers in the comments box of my blog.
  2. To make it easy for others to check out your post, title your blog post “Share Your World”  and link it to this post.
  3.  Ping-backs are activated, but how efficiently varies.  I don’t manually approve them, but sometimes they don’t show up immediately.  Why is an unsolved mystery.   You may wish to leave a link to your blog post in the comments just to be sure.  Thanks!

QUESTIONS

What should you get rid off, that would make your new year better, and why? (Don’t say Covid-19, we all want to get rid of the dang virus)   I snagged this question from another blogger, but failed to note who thought it up.  My apologies!  I KNOW better than to trust my memory any more.  If it’s your question and you’d like credit, please let me know!  Great question too, in my opinion! I know this is related, but I have to say wearing a mask. I have severe asthma and breathing through a mask is very difficult. If you don’t have asthma you have no idea how hard it is to breathe through a mask especially some of those cloth ones that are double lined.

 What’s the most daring thing you’ve ever done? I think would say learning to dive. I am terrified of putting my head under water and that includes learning to snorkel and finding myself in a giant fish bowl with foot long angel fish charging up for food. I was absolutely terrified.

Does your family have a “motto” – spoken or unspoken? Honesty is the best policy. I can’t stand lying.

On a scale of 1-10 how funny would you say you are?  (this does not mean ‘smell’ or looks; because this is a judgment free blog!) Not very. Occasionally I will pop out with something funny, but usually I am about a 1.

#JusJoJan, #SoCS, Non-Fiction, Prompt

The Friday Reminder for #SoCS & #JusJoJan 2021 Daily Prompt – Jan. 16th

The Friday Reminder for #SoCS & #JusJoJan 2021 Daily Prompt – Jan. 16th

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “first thing.” Start your post with the words, “first thing” and go from there. Bonus points if you end your post with the last thing. Have fun!

***************

First thing I became aware of was that my mind wasn’t able to think clearly. I didn’t know what was wrong I only knew something was wrong. I was standing by the emergency pull in the bathroom, but my mind was focused on the one in my bedroom which was clear across the room. It connects to the guard downstairs and brings help. I struggled across the room and fell onto my bed pushing the emergency button as I fell. My memory ending with me being forced to walk to the stretcher and having the guard place my handbag on my lap and tell me he would lock my door was the last thing.

PS I didn’t know it, but I was in the clutches of an overdose. My kidneys had shut down, therefore no longer flushing out the opioids and since I was still taking them I was rapidly going into overdose. Blood pressure was rapidly dropping and I was shot full of Narcan over and over trying to bring me back. I could have died in my sleep if I hadn’t woken up and managed to hit the emergency button. By the time the guard had gotten here I was non-responsive for the most part. Only bits and pieces of that day remain in my memory. They shocked me with so much Narcan I went into withdrawal from the opioid and that was sheer painful torture.

Linda G Hill Writes

Welcome to the Daily 2021 Just Jot it January Prompt and the Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt for SATURDAY, JANUARY 2nd! I want to wish everyone a very happy new year! May 2021 be … uneventful.

For those of you joining SoCS for the first time, it’s a little different than the other prompts in that it’s not always a whole word. Much may be left up to your discretion: this week is no exception. Having said that, if you’re joining in from JusJoJan, don’t want to write stream of consciousness style, no worries. It’s up to you! If you do want to try it, please check out the rules below. It’s fun! Here’s your Saturday prompt:

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “in the corner.” Write about whatever the image or thought of “in the corner” brings to mind. Have fun!

After you’ve written your Saturday post tomorrow, please link it here at this week’s prompt page and check to make sure it’s here in the comments so others can find it and see your awesome post. Anyone can join in!

2019-2020 SoCS Badge by Shelley! 

https://www.quaintrevival.com/

You can also use the Just Jot it January badge! To find the rules for Just Jot it January, click here.

Here are the rules for SoCS:

1. Your post must be stream of consciousness writing, meaning no editing, (typos can be fixed) and minimal planning on what you’re going to write.

2. Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be. One sentence – one thousand words. Fact, fiction, poetry – it doesn’t matter. Just let the words carry you along until you’re ready to stop.

3. There will be a prompt every week. I will post the prompt here on my blog on Friday, along with a reminder for you to join in. The prompt will be one random thing, but it will not be a subject. For instance, I will not say “Write about dogs”; the prompt will be more like, “Make your first sentence a question,” “Begin with the word ‘The’,” or simply a single word to get your started.

4. Ping back! It’s important, so that I and other people can come and read your post! For example, in your post you can write “This post is part of SoCS:” and then copy and paste the URL found in your address bar at the top of this post into yours.  Your link will show up in my comments for everyone to see. The most recent pingbacks will be found at the top. NOTE: Pingbacks only work from WordPress sites. If you’re self-hosted or are participating from another host, such as Blogger, please leave a link to your post in the comments below.

5. Read at least one other person’s blog who has linked back their post. Even better, read everyone’s! If you’re the first person to link back, you can check back later, or go to the previous week, by following my category, “Stream of Consciousness Saturday,” which you’ll find right below the “Like” button on my post.

6. Copy and paste the rules (if you’d like to) in your post. The more people who join in, the more new bloggers you’ll meet and the bigger your community will get!

7. As a suggestion, tag your post “SoCS” and/or “#SoCS” for more exposure and more views.

#JusJoJan, Non-Fiction, Prompt

#JusJoJan prompt the 15th – “Button”

#JusJoJan prompt the 15th – “Button”

**********

Medical alert buttons are useful for those of us who can find themselves in the position of needing help, but not able to call for or even go somewhere for help. My medical alert button that my children insisted I get has a fall alert, GPS and is waterproof for wearing in the shower. It is set up to call for EMT’s if I fall and don’t answer, I can call for help and can talk and it also alerts my family immediately. And we found out that the Medicaid I get from the state pays for the button so I don’t have to. I have used it twice now to call for help and thank God I have it. I don’t have to argue with the 911 operator (some of them can be problematic) and I don’t have to call my family. It is all taken care of for me.

**********

Linda G Hill’s Rules:

Hey there! Welcome to the 8th annual Just Jot it January challenge! This year is going to be far simpler than the last couple of years. One prompt per day, link to that post, that’s it. Details below.

But why should you participate in this challenge? To keep the ol’ fingers warm and meet up with an awesome blogging community, that’s why! Just Jot it January, AKA JusJoJan, is a challenge to write a post every day of the month of January. We’ve grown from a handful of participants in 2014 to close to fifty for the past couple of years. Let’s see if we can make it to sixty this year!

Here are the JusJoJan Rules:

1. Just Jot It January starts January 1st, but it’s never too late to join in! Here, we run on the honour system; the “jot it” part of JusJoJan means that anything you jot down, anywhere (it doesn’t have to be a post, it can even be a grocery list), counts as a “jot.” If it makes it to your blog that day, great! If it waits a week to get from a sticky note to your screen, no problem!

2. I’ll post prompts at 2am my time (GMT -5). The prompt will be the word in quotation marks in the title of my 2am post. You don’t have to follow the prompt every day, but that will be where you leave your link for others to see. You’ll get a prompt for every day except Wednesday, when the prompt is simply my One-Liner Wednesday and on Saturday, when your prompt will be the Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS, which will appear at about 9:30am Friday. Each prompt post will include the rules.

3. Please ping back or link to the daily prompt. To ping back, just copy the URL from the daily prompt post, and paste it anywhere in your post. Check to make sure your link shows up where you want it to, and go back occasionally to see other bloggers’ entries – the more you visit others, the more they’ll visit you! Note: A) The newest pingbacks will be at the top of the comments section. B) Ping backs only work if you’re blogging on WordPress. Everyone else must paste a link manually.

4. Tag your post JusJoJan and/or #JusJoJan.

5. Write anything! Any length will do! It can even be a photo or a drawing – you’re going to title it, right? There’s your jot!

6. If your post is NSFW, do not ping back. Please leave your link in the comments with a warning.

7. If you’d like to, use the JusJoJan badge so that others can find your post more easily.

#JusJoJan prompt the 14th – “Neighbor”

**********

Most of my neighbors have been pretty terrible, but I couldn’t ask for better neighbors than I have right now. They live directly across the hall from me. I live in a high rise and so our apartments are very close together. I felt comfortable enough to give them a key to take care of what needed to be taken care of during my hospital stays, getting mail and packages and putting them in my apartment, etc. They will do anything for me and I am not used to having neighbors like that.

The Birthday Party Part 3 (Part 1, Part 2)

By Tessa Dean January 2021

A day ago, he was sure that Ginny would say no to going to Anthony’s party instead of the fancy affair, and when he asked her, she hadn’t dashed his hopes and said no right off the bat. He hoped she wasn’t teasing him, but his friends seemed to think that she was just putting him on and that she was planning on asking one of them to take her to the fancy affair in his place.

The doldrums settled in, and he became thoughtful. How well did he know Ginny? They had met early in the year, and a few months later, they became boyfriend and girlfriend officially. He didn’t know what her expectations were for their relationship as he had never asked. He usually asked her where she wanted to go on a date, and she usually replied, “Anywhere is fine with me.” She had been planning the date to the charity ball for a few months, and so when he asked her about going to the birthday party tomorrow instead, he was surprised she didn’t say no right off the bat.

He didn’t want to appear weak, so he didn’t keep asking her if she was sure about giving up the charity ball. He would call tomorrow and tell her what time he would pick her up for the party.

He changed for bed and looked in his closet to see which of his jeans were suitable for the birthday party. They weren’t going anywhere fancy, but he didn’t want to look bad. She was a fine-looking woman, and so he wanted to look nice without his family thinking he was becoming too fancy for them. He wondered what she would wear. He didn’t want his family thinking she was his mistress, and this was the first time they would be meeting her. She always dressed fine in the past, but hopefully, she would tone it down for tomorrow.

Just before he went to bed, his friend Joseph called and said, “I have some bad news for you, man. Ginny just called and asked me to take her to the charity ball tomorrow night.”

“What? Are you kidding me, man?”

“No, I’m not kidding. I wouldn’t do that to you, man. I said no, but I heard that Wayne told her yes.”

Thomas was dazed. He couldn’t believe what he was hearing. His whole outlook on their relationship just changed within minutes. He thanked Joseph for having his back and went to bed.

Thankfully he hadn’t told his mother that Ginny was coming yet. That would have been too embarrassing to have to tell her what happened. No one else needed to know.

The next night the party started. The family had gathered around Anthony’s high chair where he sat with his cake, and there was a commotion at the door just before they began to sing “Happy Birthday.”

Thomas waited to see who was at the door. “Oh Thomas, I am so sorry I am late,” a familiar voice said. “I hope I didn’t miss the whole party. My mom had to go to the hospital. She’s ok, but I had to bring her home and get her settled into bed before I could come over to the party.”

“Ginny?” Thomas went into the hall to greet her. She was alone and dressed for a little boy’s birthday party and not a fancy charity ball. “I am sorry about not calling you with a time to pick you up. Joseph told me he had a message for me from you, and I believed him. I am so sorry for not calling you, and I am glad your mother is ok.”

“What could Joseph possibly have to tell you about me? I haven’t talked to him or any of your friends in weeks.”

“Never mind, I think I need some new friends. You are just in time to sing “Happy Birthday.” They sang, and then he introduced Ginny around as his girlfriend.

Do you ever simply stop and wonder ‘Where has time gone to?’ or is it something that never bothers you? Yes and sometimes I swear the time goes faster the older I get.
If you had a warning label, what would yours read? Mood Swings! Look Out!!
What fact amazes you every time you think of it? How fast time is flying by. My baby is 33, but my oldest child is 43. My oldest grandchild is 23 and my youngest is 1 year old. It seems just like yesterday that I had my first child and that I had gotten married just a few year before my first child appeared and then 23 years later I got divorced and the biggie is that I have no been divorced 21 years. It doesn’t seem possible.
What kind of activities do you enjoy doing and what would you never do? I love to write and read. I would never scuba dive or jump out of a plane. Or go on a safari with jungle animals.
