Ragtag Daily Prompts: Egregious, November 3, 2019

Daisies dizzyThe first time Monica Snapjaw ever tasted Silopan tea, she gagged. The bitter fluid burned her esophagus as it made its way to her stomach. A single drop went down the wrong pipe, and she began to cough until she nearly vomited. The last cogent thought that went through Monica’s mind before the effects of the tea kicked in was, “What have I done to myself?”

It was Maxwell who showed her where to go in the forest to find the innocuous looking flower whose petals were needed to brew the concoction. Despite the egregious flavor, she managed to drink it all in one quaff. In short order, just as Maxwell had promised, Monica found herself hovering above her own rooftop, the wind making havoc with her long, dark hair.

I was born at the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. I find inspiration in the lives of so many people from Joan of Arc to Oscar Wilde. While my primary avocation is photography, I also enjoy philosophy, theology and most of all, history. My beloved wife, Robin Anne Smith, who passed away in 2013 is an inspiration to me. My beloved partner, Dana is also a great support and inspiration to me. I'd be remiss if I did not mention my cats: Maxwell, Nigel, Pirouette and GarGar.
