’21 A To Z Challenge – T

The theme for this week’s A To Z Challenge has been graciously supplied by Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.

TUMULTUOUS

Full of tumult or riotousness; marked by disturbance and uproar
raising a great clatter and commotion; disorderly or noisy
highly agitated, distraught, turbulent

If Harry just wanted a continuous supply of sex with gorgeous young women, he could have taken some tips from his uncle, Randy Prince Andy – parties, mansions, booze and drugs, some grooming and coercion, a bit of physical force, and, failing all that, boatloads of 100 Pound notes.

But Harry seemed to want to get married and settle down.  If that was his plan, he picked the wrong woman.  Actually, this brazen little, attention-seeking, gold-digger purposely picked him – and Meghan is not the ‘settling down’ type.  He is apparently getting some sex, but she is just leading him around by his….  nose.

She runs their life using the Brittany Spears Career Handbook – a minor catastrophe each week, and a more major meltdown every month – anything to keep them her in the public eye.  Watching her stick-handle their social and marital relationships, (That’s a Canuck hockey reference, eh.) is like watching the shining silver sphere in an Elton John pinball machine.

They’re in Britain!
They’re in the US!
They flutter into Canada just long enough to give the residents of British Columbia some false hope!
They’re on the West Coast!
They’ve moved to the East Coast!
They’re in the news!
They’re on TV!
They’re in court!

Lights flash, bells ring out, digit counters scroll upwards, but when it all eventually goes down the drain, nothing has really happened.  Then she pushes the reload plunger to bring up the next week’s controversy.  It’s enough to make the Kardashians look relevant.

It looks like I’m done with this rant.  See you again soon.   😀

Flash Fiction #31

Whole Lotta Love

In 1968, four more young English lads got together and formed another band which strongly influenced popular music.  They united to form a group eventually known as Led Zeppelin.

With their psychedelic style and their drug usage heavily influencing each other, they only lasted 12 years as a group before the lifestyle killed their drummer.  Still, in that time they produced some memorable music.

45 years later, it’s still on the radio.  They’ve tried a few ‘Reunion’ concerts, but are getting a bit long in the tooth.  As Jimmy Page recently remarked, “Nowadays it’s more just a Stairway to Senility.”

 

Go to Rochelle’s Addicted to Purple site and use her Wednesday picture as a prompt to write a complete 100 word story.

 

Thank you to all my visitors.  The best of the season to all of you, whatever Holiday you may choose to celebrate.   😀

 

BTW;  As previously threatened, and with help from Rochelle’s Flash Fictions to help pad out my numbers, this is my 400th post, and on Christmas, as predicted.  Anybody got any unused themes lying around to help get me to 500?   😕

(And good morning Peter and family.  Merry Christmas!  Enjoy the cookies and think of us.)    😉
