Friday 55

Alright folks, the object of the game is to write a story using exactly 55 words. Want to play along? Let me know if you do so that I can come read your entries.

Candles flicker on an unseen wind. Light as a feather she circles; toes barely touch the floor. A book lays ignored, spread open on an altar. Athame held high, she summons the watchtowers. Thoughts pure, her desire focused. Power flows up her legs, through her body. She releases with a shudder. The spell is cast.

Oh, geez. All right. I'll give it a shot in exchange for the ear advice. How did you come up with 55 words? Why not 65 or 75?

So, Dr. Goodman, sorry to hijack your blog, but I figure the chances of you getting back to mine today are slim. What will the olive oil do, exactly? If I'm getting an ear infection, could it possibly make it worse, or is it supposed to prevent it? Or will only make the sound go away? Thanks for the advice!

Susie, came up with the game (the link in the text above). I'm not sure where she came up with exactly 55 words.

Don't worry I make house calls. I'll be over in a bit. :D

Spooky. Just in time for Halloween. It kinda made me think of some teen witch movie where they did their circle. I can't remember the name of it.

I forgot to tell you I liked it, too. Have you seen The Key (I think that's what it was called) with Kate Hudson? It would be a good one to watch for Halloween.

Have you ever noticed when he goes away for more than a few days, he comes back injured?

James-I hope you are okay.

Oh, no. You're right, Carrie. I was just about to ask him where he's vacationing, but shoot, he could be laid up in a hospital somewhere without a laptop.
