It’s Friday!

 Welcome to my Take Seven compilation which incorporates all 21 words (or derivatives) from the Three Things Challenge for the past week.

You are most welcome to join in using as many or all of the words too. Just pingback to this post and then leave a link to your post in the comments so that I can see it and respond directly.

As always, have fun, and I hope you enjoy this week’s effort.

 Our words were:

amusing, blessing, box, bus, choice, cinema, curse, fare, file, hang, hysterics, journey, kid, mass, peg, pretend, school, shelf, shrunk, steering, tall.


What follows is a stream of unconsciousness piece of free writing; lightly edited to flow a bit better.

Thanks for the prompt; my memory is ragged, I don’t get out much (from my personal blogland) and thus I forget the various great prompts that are out there waiting to be responded to.


As a kid, she loved to ride on the big yellow school bus, her my little pony lunch box in hand. In her day-dreams, she would enjoy the daily journey; her seat mates finding her antics amusing. Like mimicking Sister Blessing’s strange way of steering the bus.

Once there, there were games in the school yard, then inside for lessons. She was just tall enough to hang her coat and knapsack on the peg with her name painted above it. The accompanying shelf just wide enough to hold winter mitts or spring rain boots.

Dr. Choice closed the file with a sigh. There was no indication that, after several treatments, the mass on the child’s brain had shrunk.

“What a curse to place on such a young thing,” she thought. “She will fare no better than now.” The child’s mother waited outside; Dr. Choice feared the upcoming hysterics. But it would be best to let the child go.

She finished putting her things away, and eagerly sat at her desk. She loved learning and spending time with her friends at school. Even if it was playing like a pretend movie at the cinema inside her mind.
