My Imagination Getting the Best of Me

A beautiful, bright and sunny morning… No, why should I lie to myself- The morning was atrocious. The sunlight was blinding and I could feel the sweat plastering my hair to my forehead and neck. I was also fairly certain convinced that I had chosen the wrong shirt to wear, and everyone could see the butterfly outline on my back that my sweat had imprinted on me. Did I also mention the morning was hot? Well, I want to emphasize it again. With this sweltering heat, hell would seem like Antarctica in comparison.

Worst part of it all, was that all the sweating was done in a car, with the air conditioning at full blast. Hell, I told you, hell would seem like Antarctica in comparison. I hope the sweat on the car seat would not create an odor. Come to think of it.. odor is caused by germs, which are killed by heat; the germs would never survive the hot sun. Guess there is an upside to living in hell after all, eh?


Moments later, I was in Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, ordering a LARGE BLACK FOREST ICE-BLEND. I don’t even know what it is. I just wanted something LARGE and ICED.

After I placed my order, I sat alone on an overstuffed piece of upholstery, praising the wonderful air-conditioning of the shop. I felt at ease, but mentally, my mind was stressed.

cue: long chain of uninterrupted thoughts

I definitely had to get someone to service my car’s air-conditioning. I wonder if they could clean the seats too. And while at that, must they clean every seat or could they clean just the driver seat? I hardly have passengers anyway… Oh, wait I do. I picked-up my sweaty basketball mates once.

Gosh, the back seat must be crawling with germs!!! Funny how I didn’t smell anything.

Is the sun still hot? *glances out the window* Yep, it’s still hot.

Shiiiit, I parked under the shade. That means the sun would not kill the germs at all. The germs are laughing at me now.

*malicious giggling* Frederick! *more malicious laughter* Frederick! It sounds so real! I’m losing my mind!!


Oh wait, it’s just the barista telling me that my ice-blend is ready.

There weren’t any adverbs, were there?

  1. Hahahaha! You are so funny! I love reading your posts. Fredtotherick, you are going to have a lot of followers – give it time. I’m glad you are taking the Writing 101 class because you will meet a lot of people. Another good way to meet people is taking part in the various challenges – you would get lots of followers that way. I can give you information about the flash fiction challenges that I know about. I know of 4 of them.

    1. Hey PJ, you can call me Fred 😉
      I kinda have my own plans but I think I should put them on the back burner. Joining more challenges could get me better acquainted with the WordPress community. So, hit me!
      Um, figuratively.

  2. Hi! I read through a few of your posts – it does seem like the adverbs are *trying* to sneak in. Keep beating them down! This piece is great, perhaps because it does so much more showing and has a lot of tactile detail.
