Your sentence starter this week is:
- Am I asleep, or am I dreaming? This question whirled through her mind.
“Am I asleep, or am I dreaming? ” This question whirled through her mind as she listened to the TV.
Barb sat straight up in bed having almost fallen asleep.
“Did that idiot just say that private property causes Global Warming?!”
Barb glanced at her husband, Dennis, to see he had dosed off with the TV on again. Now she was wide awake and angry ‘to boot’. Bill Gates was framed on the screen, sickly grinning, and proposed once more that no one should own property or cars.
Barbara was so agitated she hit Dennis square in the face with her pillow. He flailed and sat up beside her.
“What the heck, Barbara?! You nearly gave me a heart attack! What’s wrong?”
“You fell asleep again with that Communist News Network on. Why in the HELL do you watch that garbage!”
“It’s funny and boringly predictable at the same time. You know I can’t just fall asleep like you do.”
“If you insist on watching that station, then you better make darn sure I’m asleep from now on before you tune in. It’s disturbing and alarming to me. And if you don’t understand how disturbing it is, I’ll be happy to hit you with my pillow when it’s left on in the future!”
Dennis, now awake, changed the channel to Investigation Discovery. The show playing was about a woman gradually poisoning her husband to death.
“That’s more like it! Goodnight Dennis. Sweet dreams.”
