Random Thoughts


Right now I am on the computer typing this (duh) as the glorious sun sets in a haze of red, purples, and yellows. No, just kidding. Right now I am on the computer typing this (duh) as the night sets in, sending a blue/black inkiness spreading across the dusky sky. Ooooh.....

My sister is strangely giggling next to me as she listens to her screechy music and types on her shiny black laptop, sucking her thumb (or so it appears). Suddenly, she leaps up shouting that it's going to snow tomorrow. Hooray. More frost and coldness. Not that I don't like snow, but...after the spring equinox, the weather has to actually act like spring, right?

My stomach is groaning as I just finished a sumptuous dinner of spaghetti, carrots, and peas. Actually, the cause of my groaning stomach might be due to some uncooked snowpeas with sharp ends cleverly hidden among the blood-red chaos of pasta and tomato sauce. I'm starting to feel a little sick as I imagine my dinner as a battlefield after the battle is over, with the carrots and peas (the two armies) laying helplessly, wounded (or stained with sauce) as a sharp, shiny pronged fork zooms toward them, ending their tragic stories and sending them to their doom.

Well, I like how you described your plate of scrumptious dinner (which I also enjoyed along with you) as a battlefield--I didn't really think of that. The "duh"s were pretty obvious--I don't think you needed to tell us that, but it still added humor all the while. I like your description of the sky, though it is already jet-black. Your random thoughts seem to interest me, for some reason,and your post intrigued me. I really liked your descriptions and vivid examples of what you were talking about, so I really understood what you were trying to get across to the reader. Random thoughts can really be enlightening, huh?
