Abaniko passed me a tag. It is a rather technical, wordy tag.
Here are the rules: (1) write a 100-to-200-word entry using the following words: I, me, blow job, grapes, random, power, loneliness, water, robot and blue; (2) use these words once and only once; and of course (3) the entry should make sense.
So this is my product.
The rain was pouring hard. John was walking down a dark alley, looking for men who had a bout of loneliness at that time of the night. He needed money to get by for the next day, so he walked the streets as the water drenched his body.
He found a random guy willing to give him some bread in exchange for a blow job. The guy had a suit and tie, with curly hair that resembled bunches of grapes growing on his head.
So he kneeled down, hidden by the darkness of the alley, and performed the deed like a robot, until his face became black and blue.
He felt like he had no power left after the encounter. “I am pathetic,” he said. “Show me some mercy.”
There you go. 129 words. Now, did the fact that I remembered the movie The Basketball Diaries have an effect on my creative juices for the night?
I am not tagging specific people for this one. It took me some time to make this, so I don't want to obligate people. But if you want to do this, just drop me a note, so I can read what you wrote, ok?
