Wednesday's Words on a Friday
The original Words for Wednesday was begun by Delores and eventually taken over by a moveable feast of participants when Delores had computer troubles. Sadly, Delores has now closed her blog forever due to other problems.
The aim of the words is to encourage us to write. A story, a poem, whatever comes to mind.
If you are posting an entry on your own blog, please let us know so we can come along to read it and add a few encouraging words.
This month the words/prompts are supplied by messymimi and can be found here
This week's words/prompts are:
and two phrases:
1. there's no "I" in team
2. in a pickle
Here is my story:
"Good morning workers! We have a new salesperson joining us today. Let us all remind him of our motto."
Everyone chants, "there is no "I" in team"
Good, good. Now take a seat, umm, what was your name again? "
"Billy Bob Cayman, sir"
"Right. Any questions so far?"
"What does team mean, sir?"
"Oh, you're a really new newbie. All together now."
Everyone chants, " Together Everyone Achieves More"
Billy Bob, "Oh. But doesn't that only work when everyone puts in the same amount of effort and gets the same results?"
"Hush now, you'll get the hang of things quicker if you don't ask questions. No need to put yourself in a pickle over details."
Billy Bob, "Huh? I think maybe I chose the wrong job. Should have tried for Lawyer."
"Alright now, today we are trying another experiment. The final trial to see if you all have what it takes to reach the top. To use a new term I've learned, today we are going "off shore", not only off shore, but off planet. Today you are heading to a planet called Earth. You all have an address in your file, you are to go there and sell as much as you can of our product. Shouldn't be too hard. I've been told that Earthlings will buy just about anything."
Billy Bob, "what is it we are selling sir?"
"Mosquito repellant Billy Bob. Apparently Earth has more mosquitos than it does people, so no one should have any trouble selling, right? Now off you all go. The spaceship is on deck J and will be loading supplies and passengers from the moment you get there. I want to see bags full of Earth money when you all come home again."
