Go With the Flow – NanoPoblano – Day 24


Here’s another of the little stories I wrote, using the words played on an online Scrabble game. The  words played are underlined, and also a list at the end.


Go With the Flow – Progress Comes to the Back Woods

We were finally getting an indoor toilet. Time had passed us by, being that we were stuck way out here in the woodsy, forgotten land. There were yew trees, and pine trees, and it was peaceful.

Now, we’re no naifs…we’d heard of the newfangled plumbing, but, why should we bother. We had no city water pipes or taps out here in the sticks… at least until recently. The encroaching populated cities were closing in our idyllic solitude. They were in a rush to incorporate our vast wilderness.

I don’t know what we’ll do with our ox. We’ve had that heifer for years. We use her milk to make our favorite cheese…Brie. At first, we thought the sex of the ox was male. Then she birthed a baby ox, and the rest was history in the making. We give Grace, that’s her name, a rubdown every week to thank her for providing us with her oh, so creamy milk. We even bottle grams of it to sell at the farmer’s market down the hill. We net a good profit.

I dread when those effin’ drunkards from city hall come jutting their chins at us, telling us to quit this place…move on or be part of their @x!# beeping city. Oy! How I would love to cane a couple of those nibs. I’m firm in being jaded. I’ll openly duke it out with them…and win. I’m no dozer. I’ve maced nitwits before…I’ll do it again.

It’s apt for those ragtag litho newspapers to get everyone riled up. But then, it would be nice to have that indoor plumbing, I dare say. Mi!
