Brrrr…everything was chattering.  It was frigid , so I went looking for a place to stay warm, maybe take a little nip to keep me hot and toasty all over. Oooo…looky. I’ll float over and latch on, just under the collar. YUM! Blood, oozey and totally…wow! WOW! What’s THAT…it’s…spicy…oh, someone’s eating some really hot food! THANK YOU! Gracias. Dhanyavad!

Hey, hey…HEY! Get your fingers off me, bud! Stop it…sto…oh damn. Here comes the cigarette. I better get off, back in the water, or it’s ‘bye bye’me! Damnit. Cold again. You’d think he’d never recover from a leeching. Geez.


Another fun little challenge: Tracy Chapman’s Hump Day Challenge.  Tracy wrote: “The rules are simple. Incorporate the five words below into a story of no more than 100 words. Post your story directly into the comments section.”

The five words for today were: Spicy, Collar, Blood, Recover and Frigid.

The challenge is open until Thursday, 6/16 at Noon EST. Have fun.

This pic has nothing to do with the story. Just liked it.
