Three years ago i bought a book in Tampa which is meant to be a great for creative like minds and for the past three years I have made it my New Years Resolution to complete it. The book is called 642 Things To Write About by The San Francisco Writers Grotto. I never got round to writing many of them so what’s a better way then getting through them then writing a few as an article each week! Enjoy!
30. A Man jumps from the fortieth story of a building. As he’s passing the twenty-eighth floor, he hears a phone ring and regrets that he jumped. Why?
He was doing a stunt for a film and they said he would get a phone call to say stop if it wasnt safe or needed for the film. The Director tells him to start doing the action he is meant to do and to recreate the stunt that they need for that part of the film. As soon as jumps he notices there is no safety equipment put in place at the top of the roof and that the cameras were not ready. That is what the phone call was for – to tell him to stop doing the stunt and not to go ahead with it and regrets not answering the call before he jumped. However – the stunt man is really lucky as there is already a safety jump matt at the bottom of his fall that is very nearly fully pumped up. Whilst he walks away with a bruised body and a potential broken arm from the fall, he survived and that is what is most important.
31. Write a recipe for disaster.
500 g of cheating,
20g of bed,
40g of lust,
100g of being caught
Add the bed and lust together before adding 1 man and the zest of 1 Mistress. Sive in the 500g of cheating and then mould in the 100g of being caught until it is nice and thick. Chop up 1 wife anf add to the mix putting on a temperature of 180 degrees. Leave for 2 hours to bake, rise, scream and fight to the perfect Divorce Tart.
32. Your friend calls to say she saw you in the back of a police car yesterday. What happened?
It all started with a case of mistaken identity and being in the right place at the wrong time. I went to the shops to buy some nw clothing and electrival items and also to see what was on sale and that is when it all happened. A woman with black hair, smart clothing run past stopped and shouted ‘Help! I am being mugged” and messed up her outfit and hit herself in the face to make it look like she had been hit and blamed it all on me and I was given into the police and she walked away with my shoppping bags claiming that they were hers. Later on they watched the CCTV cameras and realised that she had been a liar and mugged me!
