using Wednesday's Words

Words for Wednesday is a weekly writing prompt designed to get our creative juices flowing.  This month the words are over at Elephant's Child's place (you can find her in my sidebar).  This week the prompts are:
Off your rocker
hit the sack.

Let's give it a shot shall we?

Cornelia breezed through the door of the tiny old farmhouse and clapped her hands with joy.
"'re off your rocker." she chirped  happily.
"You bet girl.  That new medicine the doc gave me has me up and flying around here just like the old days.  I've cleaned house, made supper and I've got bread rising in the oven.  I think I may do me a little gardening before the sun goes down.  You have some supper and then hit the sack girl.  You've had a long day."
Cornelia cast a doubtful eye around her and then gave her Grannie a loving smile.  Seemed like docs new medicine didn't do much more than make her Grannie delusional...but....she WAS off her rocker.  That was a start.


  1. Applause from me ...

    All the best Jan

  2. You always come up with a good story...a great use of the words given, Delores...and this is no exception. :)

  3. Well done Delores; a delighted delusional Granny and a grand daughter happy to see her that way.

  4. Love it! Especially the dual-meaning you used for granny being off her rocker. Very clever. (I could use some of those meds...)

  5. As long as Granny is happy and enjoys her last days, it works!


It's lovely to know someone else is out there. Please leave me a comment...pretty please.
