Got His Goat: A Grave Story

goats_and_graves_3_randy_mazie

Hey, Norima!  How you doin’?

“I’m fine, James. but I thought you took that job at the cemetery to make extra money?”

“I did.  It’s to mow the grass around the graves by 4pm every Saturday.”

“It’s 2:30 now.  Are you done already?”

“No, but farmer Nickols sold me his goat.  I tied it to a tree at the cemetery and it’s had nearly 4 hours to roam and eat the grass.”

“James!  It’s sheep that eat all that grass.  Goats eat tin cans and such.”

James began a heavy run toward the cemetery.  He shouted over his shoulder,

“Fired! First Day!”

*I remember this prompt and the direction I took it in.  Thought it was time for a non-violent change!

Namaste,

A Life-Changing Video PG

I don’t know if the prompt sites I normally use will post anything this wonderful holiday week.  So, I decided to post something not holiday, but so very important that I will ask you to take the 5 minutes you usually use to read my story and watch the video below.  It can be a life-changer.  Will you let it?

Namaste,

Scott

A Very Grave Nanny

________________

“Come on!”  Stevie yelled.  I tried hard to catch up.

We entered the small, local cemetery and he pointed.  I watched, following his finger with my eyes.

“See?  Told you!  Gregory was cursed for having that purple eye and was turned into a chicken by the demon of the cemetery.”

I punched Stevie.  “That’s a nanny goat, not a chicken.”

“God!  It’s even worse!”  Stevie ran off; I shook my head.

I started to walk away; the goat whined.  I turned to pat its head.

It looked at me with that one purple eye and I fell twice running away.
