Week Three #BlogBattle Topic: Eggs

Post it: Tuesday, March 31st, 2015.

Ah, my friends! Battle with me! Let’s put our creativity to work and write some short stories! It doesn’t need to be long. In fact, if you like a challenge, make it as short as you can!

Rules:

  1. 1000 words max
  2. fictional tale (or true if you really want)
  3. PG (no more than PG-13) Content – let’s keep this family friendly!
  4. Your story must contain the word(s) from the theme and/or be centered around the theme in a way that shows it is clearly related
  5. Go for the entertainment value!
  6. Use the hashtag #BlogBattle, put a link back to your #BlogBattle Short Story in the comments section of this post, and/or include a link to thispost in your own blog post (it creates a “ping-back” which will alert me and our friends to your #BlogBattle post)
  7. Have fun!

Okay, so now let’s recap: #BlogBattle Theme: Eggs

Write a 1000 words (or less) story for this theme and post it on Tuesday, March 31st, 2015 by midnight PST. Remember that you can write it sooner and set it to publish on the specific date! 🙂

I’ll retweet all the #BlogBattle tweets and posts I come across (and you can, too). I will create a blog post linking back to all our submitted stories. Plus, after I’ve read each one, I’ll be picking a winner who will be subjected to a short, painful painless interview with yours truly!

***So that I won’t miss your story, please add a link back to this post to your story. It can be as simple as this url: http://wp.me/p4ouX2-gE (just make sure to use the chainlink-looking feature to enter in the url there again so that it works like a real link and will pingback here. That way I’m guaranteed not to miss it!)


Here are links to a few of the Week 2 #BlogBattle short stories so you can get an idea of the variety our imaginations can create. The theme was simply Side Table. The following is what we came up with using just that for inspiration:

Now, get crackin’ on that Eggs story! Happy Short Story #BlogBattle -ing, my friends! 🙂

  1. Once apon a time there were two little girl, sisters, that had a Daddy that was a REAL DADDY, the kind everyone would like to have. (That was me and my sister)
    He would take his girls to the florist before Mothers Day to buy a flower to wear. He explained that a red color showed your mama was alive and a white flower showed that she had passed away.
    At Christmas he taught us to think of each person we wanted to buy for and what THEY would like the most. We bought a beautiful robe and perfume for our Mama one year.
    Valentines Day was for love and poetry to be personal for that special person.
    The 4th of July was always special to celebrate our country and it’s heretage.
    On St. Patricks Day we wore greens, so we wouldn’t get pinched and for special occations like basket socials etc Daddy would make us the most imaginative and ingenious boxes to take our dinner in for the social.
    After a special occation like our school activities we got to have ice cream or floats with all the family.
    BUT !!!!!!!! On Easter, Daddy loved coloring eggs and he had a very special recipe for making beautiful egss. First of all he would have the eggs all ready to color and into each container of color, he would add a few drops of vegetable oil. (Rather unusual, right?) He would drip an egg into a chosen color, take it out and wipe it with a clean cloth. It would look mottled !!!! THEN he would dip it into a different color, take it out and wipe it again. Doing this made the most beautiful varied colored aggs. Of course, we girls got to try our hand and see what we could create too. On Easter morning, we would get up and the eggs would have been hidden all over the house. They would be behind curtains, in creases of the couch, some right out in sight and we always knew there would be one in the toe of our shoe or slipper.
    When we were grown and had moved away from home, he would gather all the neighborhood kids and they would have an egg coloring and then he would hide them all over the back yard and have them (neighborhood kids) look for them. It always was a fun thing for everyone.
    I am sure if he were still alive, he would be delighting his great great grandchildren with this type of things. He like to take time with children. It brought out the child in him.
    HE WAS MY DADDY.
