Day 17:
Setting: A Skyscraper
Character: A Crying Baby
Object: A Shopping Catalog
Other:

“No! Don’t do it! Don’t throw the baby!” she screamed as I paced the patio on the 53rd-floor of the high-rise building.

I wasn’t going to throw the baby… I just wanted some fresh air.

“I found the perfect solution right here in this shopping catalog! It’s guaranteed to make the baby stop crying!”

My wife was so dramatic.

365 Days of Writing – 16

Day 16:

Setting: A Very Humid Place
Character: Circus Clown
Object: Can of Spray Paint
Time: May 5th, 2015

I couldn’t take it anymore. The humidity was killing me. Sitting down on the park bench, I ripped off the curly, multi-colored wig. My makeup was streaming down my face with the sweat. What the hell kind of clown was I?

Looking down at the can of spray paint in my hands, for the first time in my life I felt guilty. What if a child were to see me in this condition?

But that sound… that happy sound coming from the mariachi band made these feelings quickly disappear. With all of my graffiti work, I had forgotten it was my sixth-favorite day of the year: Cinco De Mayo!

Day 15:

Setting: Kihei, Hawaii
Character: President Donald Trump
Object: A Broken Wall

“Mr. President, tear down this wall!” said the young Hawaiian boy, confronting President Donald Trump in the town of Kihei, on the south side of Maui.

The year was 2021. Having just won re-election to the White House, President Trump was on a roll— constructing walls wherever there was a demand. The resorts of neighboring community Wailea, along with their ultra-rich clientele, demanded that the President construct a wall between the two towns… to keep the commoners out.

“Walls work,” retorted the President. “Just look at the one between us and Mexico!”

“But this is between two towns in the same country, the same state, the same island!” called voices from the gathered crowd.

“It’s also between two very different classes of people, believe me!” said Trump.

At that moment, the crowd parted ways as a battering ram struck the wall, leaving a crack in President Trump’s now-broken wall.
