“I’m Just Joking”: #StaD May; Day Five

Standard disclaimer. I don’t own them, I don’t profit from them, but they insist on telling me their stories, so I’m sharing them with you.

“I’m Just Joking”

“Do you like your new workspace – Paula, is it?”

“That appellation will suffice.”

“Serious, eh? Guess the message was folly.”


“‘Whatever you do, don’t die. See you Monday’ – and it’s Monday.”

“I’m aware of the potential dangers from geothermal features and wildlife.”

“But what about radioactive slime on your toothbrush? Or if I defenestrate you, or throw you in a dungeon? Strange tentacles created by alchemy? Or attack by succubus zombies? Hey, why are you staring at me like that? I’m just joking – I’m not prone to manslaughter.”

“I am of strong constitution. You simply remind me of someone.”

Who is Paula?

Who does the joker remind her of?

Is it a pleasant reminder?

Any guesses?

I am myself. I own my life, and live with three other people who own theirs. My intention is to do only those things that bring me joy, and to give myself wholly to those things I do. Writing has been my passion throughout my life, and this will become the home for my writing life...because it brings me great joy!
