Oh My Gosh! You are not going to believe this! My seven year old daughter just got her first, and probably her last, iphone. She is loving the camera on it. I swear, you don't even want to get undressed for bed, without making sure she is not hiding under the bed, with her camera in hand! It is just plain scary, to say the least!
I have always had my fears about our neighbors sanity. Up until now, I have not voiced my opinion though. I mean this man is weird! He just gives me the creeps so I tend to stay away from him. I have told the kids to never go inside his home or even in his yard. I just don't know what kind of man he is.
I am sure you know what I am talking about. I just get chill bumps on the back of my neck every time I see him. I don't know why but I just don't trust him.
Well, back to Brianna’s new iphone. She came home last night and was showing me her new photos. I was shocked and frightened at the same time, to see what she had to share.
Evidently she not only broke my rule of not going near that man, but she also took a photo of him.
You have got to see this man and you will understand my fear!
Look at this photo of my crazy neighbor! Look at that! He has a gun on his hip, a bottle of alcohol running into an IV attached to his veins! Is that not scary!?!
Look at that man, he just scares me to death!
I am not even sure what is in that can on the desk to his right. Who knows what he has in there!
I think that is a pizza box under his mouse. It looks generic but I am sure that is what it is. He don't even get up to prepare food. He looks like he is hypnotized by the screen on the computer. I just wonder what he is watching on there. I mean he just looks like a “porn” man to me. I wonder if it is kids, women or men porn. Who knows what he is into.
Now do you understand why this man gives me the creeps? I don't know what to do with the iphone now. It may have just saved our lives. Should I call the police? I mean you know that is kiddy porn! You can just tell by the look in his eyes.
I bet that is wackie backie in that cigarette too. I have been wondering what that smell was. I have been smelling burning leaves. I mean, this is the city. There are no burning leaves. It has been that man smoking marijuana. I know it is. Look at that cigarette. You can just tell by the look in his eyes that he is smoking dope. Dope! This man lives next door. I can't let the kids get around this man. What am I going to do?
Just look at this photo! You know what I am saying is true!
I can't believe I have a kiddy porn viewer, dope smoking, alcohol IV induced psycho next door! What shall I do?
Shh! Don't tell anyone. I have not told anyone! Well, except you, Donna, Janet, Mom, Dad, Sam, Mike, Sally, Renee, Len, Greg, and a few more people. But don't you tell anyone.
This post is fiction and a result of the assignment given by Len in the following prompt. IF you would like to take this challenge, you must be a member of the Writing Essential Group. You can join by clicking HERE.
This Week’s Challenge:
Write something (prose or poetry; fiction, nonfiction, or essay) about this picture. Put yourself in there or one of your kids, friends, or neighbors. Go off on a tangent and explain how all writers are a bit crazy -- and don’t confine yourself to writers, think about all computer users.
I think there will be a lot of humorous submissions, but get serious and explain why the idea of a Jack Daniels IV is impossible.
Try to come up with some logical explanation why I might be sitting there typing -- with a pistol on my hip.
I’ve mentioned in the past that I never know what I’m going to write for my own challenges. This week, though, I’m going to write about the problems I had getting this picture taken. Anticipate me and write something explaining how hard it was to get this picture.
Watch Out For:
Whatever you write, make sure the picture is the focal point of your submission.
