Two Phrase Story #25

I provide the first phrase and you complete the sentence and we see in how many different directions one thought can be taken….

This week’s phrase

“I read the last page…..”

My attempt

“…….and closed my eyes, letting the story continue in my mind.”

Your turn!

About hbhatnagar

I need to fill this up with much better content than I had populated it with earlier. Why I write a blog maybe? I started blogging in 2009 or thereabouts. I was a newly turned atheist and wanted to converse with others of the same persuasion. We're not exactly a big population group in India! It didn't go very well and I sort of lost interest, posting a few things now and then. I got a lot more regular over the last few months and have been posting almost daily since February '15. There were many reasons why I gradually became more regular in posting, but one way or the other, here I am! So this blog has taken shape, being at different points in time my showcase, my comedy club, my art gallery, my book club, my therapist, my close friend, my innermost self....but always my little corner of the world. You are all welcome to visit and I hope you stay awhile! A few points about me because I don't want to lead anyone on(and trust me this does become an issue more often than I'd care to admit). I'm Indian, the brown-skinned variety; if race, ethnicity or skin colour is an issue, you don't have to get to know me any more than what you see on my blog. I'm 40, so if age is an issue, please be informed accordingly. I was a doctor, an ophthalmic surgeon for 10 years before I quit practice.

      • Technically, the typo ticked him off so much he tracked down the author and shot at her. Fortunately she had a copy of the book in her breast pocket. It stopped the bullet. He was subsequently jailed for life because he had actually succeeded in killing two other people who had made typos. As retaliation, the author sent him notes once a week full of glaring errors. It eventually drove him mad and he hung himself with a rope he had fashioned out of rubbery, semi-dried spaghetti noodles.

      • That’s not a phrase! 😛
        And I would have killed him off with a pen through his heart! 😀
        Those notes are a sadistic idea!
