Welcome friends, fans, and strangers, alike!
This is the 666th post on Musings Of a Mad Macedonian, since I begn this blog on October 8th, 2007, after retiring my first blog after 5 1/2 years. :-D
Nikita was there, alongside me, from the beginning, as he had been with the first one.
Nikita joins me, today, submitting one of the 2 Writing Prompts to be shared in this entry.
As regulars know, he can now be found, alongside his protege, Elvira Mistress of Felinity, over at Meowsings of an Opinionated Pussycat.
Once, when no-one was looking...
(Set a Timer for 15 minutes, and write non-stop.)
I remember it like it was yesterday...
We had recently moved into our new home on Merrywood St., in 1969, and I was 9 years old.
Around the corner was a Shopping Bag Market, and we used to walk around the corner, my Mom, and I, so she could do grocery shopping, while Dad watched my muh younger sisters.
This was a year before he became ill, and all was hunky dory in our lives.
One day we went to the market &, as we ventured up, and down, the aisles I happened to spot an open bag of M & M's.
Woo Hoo! Jackpot! :-D
I picked it up, and as Mom continued shopping, oblivious, I munched away quite happily. ;-D
After paying, and loading up the bags, we headed out into the parking lot.
As we approached our street corner Mom suddenly noticed me, and my prize. :-D
She asked me where I got it.
I can not tell a lie!
I told her I saw the open bag on a shelf, and thought, finders keepers, losers weepers, or something along those line, typical of the thinking of a 9 year old.
She promptly marched me, and the bag, with only 2 M & M's left in it, back to the store, made me turn it in, and apologize for stealing it.
I was humuliated!
Needless to say I never, ever, stole anything again. :-D
