Ragtag Daily Prompt: Sleep

Max shyClick beetle 1

While Maxwell slept, his nemesis, the holy click beetle was on the move. Banging his head on the concrete sidewalk in front of the Snapjaw residence, in Morse code, he tapped out the message, “Satan’s spawn lives here.” While the angelic insect would be the first to admit that it sounded a bit melodramatic, desperate times called for desperate measures. At least that’s what he told himself.

“How dare that son-of-a-bitch sleep, while the world is falling apart, and largely because of his own efforts!” Said click beetle out loud to nobody in particular.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Fantasy 2

Here we have a fairly subtle tweak of reality.
Here we have a more radical approach to the prompt Fantasy.

What the second photograph really represents is just a little fun, playing with some of the new features in Photoshop Elements 2020.

Tuesday Photo Challenge Week 187: Fantasy, November 19, 2019

Pchtikwitle, the squirrel and his friend Tchk-tchk were on their way to enjoy some breakfast, but they couldn’t agree on the place.

“Let’s go to Glenn. They’ve always got those yummy unsalted, roasted peanuts. On top of that, there’s sure to be some bird seed for dessert,” posited Tchk-Tchk.

“I’m sick of that place!” Cried Pchtikwitle. “Before I’ve taken two bites, those damn blue jays always show up to steal all the peanuts. It’s infuriating.”

“Okay,” sighed his friend. “What do you suggest?”

“How about Taylor?” They’ve been leaving those yummy crusts from peanut butter and jelly sandwiches under the tree.”

“You’re joking, right? If you’re tired of the blue jays, how can you suggest a notorious haunt for the crows? Those damn crows are capable of anything!”

“Alright, fine,” huffed Ptchikwitle. “But the minute I see a blue jay, I’m splitting.”

“Fine. Fine. Fine.”

Note: I’m probably going to submit a second post that pursues the concept of fantasy from pure imagery. I love the example that was presented to us with the surreal vision of taking the dogs for a walk. At first I thought that they might be unicorns! –Russell
