OLWG #155- The Aleutians

This week’s prompts are at the bottom. The words below are written just for practice. Practice makes perfect.

Here’s how to play along, if you are unsure.


I went to see my brother, Emitt, last night. I’ve been worrying about him. He’d been cooped up alone; in his house for so long with the kids gone. Now that the shelter in place restrictions are being eased a bit, I thought he could use a bit of cheering up. I took the liberty of bringing a six-pack of Coronas, half a bottle of tequila and a “Girls Gone Wild” video that I found when cleaning out the closet beneath the stairs. I had all of these things stuffed into a colorful ‘Trader Joe’s” bag from the Aleutians.

I knocked on his front door before turning the knob and pushing the door open.

“Emitt?” I hollered.

“In the kitchen, Guy,” I heard.

I closed the door and made my way to the back of the house where I found Emitt leaning over a simmering pot of red stuff on the stove. “What’s up, brother?” I asked. He put down the wooden spoon he was holding and we embraced.

“Not much, just whipping up a bunch of sauce. You want to eat?”

“I had something like that in mind,” I said. I opened the top of the Trader Joe’s bag and showed him what was inside.

“Crack open a couple of those cool ones,” Emitt ordered. I set to it and he spotted the tequila and the DVD. His face changed, “I don’t want to watch that, Guy. I’ll drink your beer and tequila but I don’t want to watch that.” He shook his head, “No, nope, don’t think so; but I appreciate the thought.”

“You got to, Em,” I said, “You haven’t had a social life since Louise left you. You can either watch this video with me or we can take your Porsche and go to the Strip Club.”

“Not going to do it, Guy. Louise is coming back home, man. I know she is. She just needs a little more time. That’s all. Just a little more time.”



This week’s prompts are:

  1. don’t tempt me, baby
  2. midnight microphone
  3. tear stained letter

  1. Go ahead and dive in, set your imagination free!

  2. Write something big, Write something small,
    Write something
    Ready, Set, Go – you have 25 minutes, but if that is not possible, take as long as you need and, have fun!
