toenails

It’s February 15th. Let’s keep the love going, shall we.

Ladies, do you like it when your man paints your toenails? I sure do! Gents, how do you feel about it? Yay or nay?

Our fellow for today’s prompt doesn’t seem to mind. Who is this couple? New bride and her whipped groom? Actress and her personal assistant? Hotel guest and the concierge who takes his job very seriously? Who is she talking to on the phone? Mom, girlfriend, boyfriend? Maybe she’s an heiress and together they are plotting the demise of Old Money Bags. I wonder what color he’s using.

You’re up. Tell a tale or caption the pic. I’d love to her from you.

I love this prompt on so many levels. The possibilities are endless.

Tell me about him. Who is he? Where is he? Who is he calling? Or has someone called him? Is he a time traveler restricted to the 20th century and payphones are his vehicle? Could he be a low-level criminal in a police station desperate for a better way of life, reaching out to the one woman who can help him, hoping against hope he hasn’t screwed up so badly that she won’t answer? What if he is getting instructions for his next hit and he’s not down with who the mark is. Is he saying he’s sorry to someone on the other end? If so, who? Perhaps he’s just received bad news. Or maybe he’s hearing his wife/girlfriend’s voice for the first time since she was taken/he was deployed on a mission/they had a fight a year ago/she married someone else/he took off to protect her. Endless possibilities, I tell ya.

What’s yours? I’d love to hear your take or just caption the pic.

Ooh. Intriguing!

Today’s prompt’s got a lot of lead. Who are our couple and what are they up to? Husband and wife assassins on the tail of their next hit? Undercover agents on their way to a fancy fundraising gala hosted by a ruthless drug lord? Cat burglars on a heist at a museum opening? Detectives out on a hot date? Are things about to go down at the Oscars?

What’s your take? Tell me a tale or caption the pic. As always, love to hear from you.

New year, new prompt.

Who is our subject today, where is he, and what is he doing? Is he beckoning someone to join him in his secret room? Someone special? A lover? His prey? Maybe, he is in an attic searching for clues to a long dead mystery. What if he is the victim in a basement and his sadistic captor has opened the door to throw him scraps, or worse. Conversely, could the sunlight be his hope? Is he about to be saved? If so, by who? Could it be 2017 coming to the rescue?

Tell me a tale or just caption the pic.

Well damn. Got a little something on ya.

For today’s prompt, tell me what’s going on? What is that and what does it mean? Is it a new virus that could wipe out civilization? What if it’s the antidote and only a chosen few are given it? If so, who is this guy and why would he be inoculated with it? Or did he steal it? Could that vampire blood? If so, why is it on him? What if he is a wounded alien in need of medical attention? Maybe it isn’t anything so extreme or nefarious. Maybe it’s a new type of artist paint that could revolutionalize the art world. Or reindeer pee.

You tell me. What’s the story or caption the pic.

Is it Wednesday already? With the holidays and shopping crazy deals behind us, I give you today’s sexy prompt.

Who are they and what’s going on? Socialite not quite understanding how placing a bet on the game works? A hypnotist who successfully fleeces old men with old money and their young wives by playing high-stakes pool? Are they double-agent spies seducing each other for intel before the next tournament? Maybe she was losing so bad, she decided to distract him. Could she be performing a bank shot? *wink, wink* Sure hope that stiletto doesn’t  put a rip in the table’s felt.

Balls, sticks, pockets, even chalk, I’m sure you can come up with something. Tell me a tale or caption the pic.

It’s the Thanksgiving holiday for Americans. Many of us will be in the kitchen today. So how about a fun prompt?

Most folks would recognize these two but for the sake of creativity tell me who they are in your story. What is going on? Is this her first time to make him a meal? Is she worried about how to cook a feast for his extensive family? Had she already burned the turkey and is scrambling for a recipe using only bologna? Could she have finally decided on a recipe with ingredients calling for milk, only, uh-oh, he just drank the last of it? Maybe she’s pretending to read the cookbook, but instead, is reading a super sexy and highly entertaining romance novel. And he’s eating carbs because he will need his energy and soon.

You know the drill. Tell me a tale or caption the pic.
