the sting of winterís bite struck such a sense of fear that even mercury, the ever positive refused to slide heavenwards and remained rooted to the bottom of its bulb climb forsaken and glory renounced
even the pond outside appeared to be terrorised forced into submission by strong arctic winds while the trees around revealed their thin skeletons covered by whiteness of snowy dressings
thatís when a flying saucer came and hit me on my face thus had begun the war of snowballs and the score was neighbourís kid one : me zero
I stood snowballed and in deep thought: no winter can ever freeze the rage of a seven year old and no gloom can ever stale the natural pluck of a child
ah... nice to read you again and I enjoyed this perspective. The beginning seems to set a mood, that is broken in a light hearted sort of way..seriously... nicely done..
now... neighbor kids are meant to be terrorized... unwritten rule..they aren't yours and annoying them is great sport. Always allow them to win a few rounds..but surprise them with your ability to plan and carry out massive counter attacks..that leave them laughing...
even the pond outside appeared to be terrorised forced into submission by strong arctic winds ********************** Sheesh, do I ever understand that one! LOL at this snowball episode. Keep your guard up.
It's sad the world leaders and terrorists have something much more sinister in their arsenals than snowballs.
