So here we are, the first 42 words for the year and a big thank you to all of those who nominated a number last week. We have nearly got the final running order but I’ll discuss that a bit more later on.
So, this week I thought I knew exactly what Chelsea’s choice was referring to but then I did the insane, I googled it. This revealed that it wasn’t what I expected but I have a notion that this isn’t what the themed list was referring to in the first place, so I’m in a bit of a quandry.
So what is the theme, you ask. Well the theme is …
Ok, let’s first visit the google definition and perhaps you will see why I don’t think this could be the intended theme.
Parent story is the original story of the side story. Side story itself is happen along the main story, but it’s not needed to come at the point. Which mean that without the side story, the main story will still continue.
Now c’mon its pretty obvious isn’t it. Parent story and side story in 42 words. Possible but highly unlikely, in my opinion.
So what do I think they meant by parent story? I think its just as it states, a story your parents told you or a story featuring parents. Now, here we think of that great Monty Python skit, the four yorkshiremen.
So I’m going to leave it up to you fine folks to decide which of the two options they were referring to when they created the list and astound me with your take on the prompt but of course there are conditions attached, 42 words to be precise.
Now this week we’re hunting for the last two picks and its going to be a vote, the number with the most selections will be our lucky last.
So, in the comments please nominate either 6 or 19 and though voting isn’t compulsory, it would be nice to see everyone do they’re part for the democracy.
Here’s my take on this week’s prompt:
Gifts for the kids, you don’t know my parents
“Kids get all of the best present’s nowdays; I never got a remote controlled car.”
“Take it for a spin Dave, Marc will never know.”
“Hey, where’s my remote controlled car?” Marc wailed.
“Under a truck,” Came Mother’s sour reply.
PS Don’t forget to pingback.
