Saturday Centus

This week we get a normal kind of prompt. Here's my take:

"I planted a little story seed, and it grew into a story tree. So then I picked the story fruit, peeled it, added sugar and cinnamon, and I baked it into a story pie. Then I ate a slice of the story pie with some story vanilla ice cream. And then..."


"I think I pushed the metaphor too far."

"That was a metaphor?"

"It started off as one, yeah."

"A metaphor for what?"

"Would you believe I don't remember?"

"Yeah, I got that."

"You know what the moral here is?"

"Don't drink decaf?"

"That's right."
 A bit on the silly side, I know, but I continue to be fascinated by the effects of caffeine on storytelling!

Might be a little silly but I love the idea of a story tree and a story fruit...will have to ponder those images a while.

Christine said...

What happened after eating the pie? Quick drink some caffeine and let us know...

Susan Anderson said...

I thought this was both clever and true. I've done this with metaphors before...and I've seen it done even more often than that.

Nice job!


Nonna said...

Excellent !
Perfectly logical and interesting metaphors to ponder and examine...caffeine or not !

BTW, thanks for stopping by and reading my offering this week.

you made me chuckle... and you call that a NORMAL prompt?....sheesh... ;)

This is quite an interesting take on the prompt! If I drink caffeine after 10 in the morning, my mind races all day long!

Alison said...

I love this take on the prompt. It was cute and it made me laugh. Besides, what is the point of coffee if it's decaf?

Not silly at all...I so like the idea of a story pie too! This all just flows so nicely!

Kim said...

This sounds exactly like a conversation at our house - metaphors are so hard for The Mister to understand.

Jenny said...

Holy criminy! I could totally relate to this...and it's pretty much how I write anyway...with or without caffeine!
