Losing It

Drabble Day Challenge 3/6/11 – “memory”
I love these things! Thanks, Aheila!

Losing It.

I came in here for something.

I see my book. I sit down and read. The burly soldier is about to have his way with the buxom maid. Things get blurry.

I need my glasses. I think they’re in the kitchen.

I look in my purse and find a receipt. I have to return a blouse. I go upstairs to get it.

My cat is on my bed. I pet him. He’s shedding. I go back downstairs to get his brush. The doorbell rings.

It’s a delivery man. “Ma’am you still need to sign this.”

“Wait a minute. I’ll go find a pen.”

I like this one- it shows her getting overwhelmed and constantly changing before she reaches an objective!

Thanks, Lectin.

And thanks Ryan for emailing it in =) I've had trouble with my computer duplicating some of my comments lately - darn technology!

Excellent piece! I like the idea of going through each line, into each sequence. Thanks for stopping by, and have a happy week.
