Let’s play… (Contest)

This is for those of you currently buried in snow. Pretty, isn’t it? I’d love to lie in a hammock tied between those two bent palms and hang a foot outside to rock myself in the warm island breeze…

But then, they’re leaning so badly that the moment I managed to ungracefully climb into the rope hammock, they’d both be uprooted and topple onto me. I’d spend the rest of my vacation in intensive care at the island hospital where a mosquito would bite me and I’d contract dengue fever, which would turn into dengue hemorrhagic fever (because I always have to be a 1%-er, right?)…and then I’d die…

Yeah, I’m ready for winter to be over. No one can make me smile…except maybe you! Ready for a fun contest?

Take the same concept—you, doing something ordinary, and then adding “…and then I die…” Make it over-the-top or completely deadpan. Have fun! Every comment counts as an entry to win! And since you’re snowed in with enough accumulation on the roof to cave it in, you have a great place to start!

Oh, and the prize will be a free book—a download of any of my most recent releases. Have fun. And stay warm!

    Mine would be so basic. I’m walking from the house to the corral, trip over my own two feet, and then I die.

    I’m constantly tripping over absolutely nothing.

    I stared at the damn things, determined to conquer them. The Christmas lights twinkled maliciously at me, ready to become part and parcel of a vast, soul-destroying knot the moment I started peeling the loose end from the tree.

    I’d taken precautions, this time. The very tip of the strand of lights was tucked firmly behind the angel’s backside, where I could see it. Never again would I repeat last year’s how-do-I-get-these-off fiasco–a disaster of far-spread pine needles in deep-pile carpet and baubles flung in frustration to all corners of the front room. I tugged the loose end – then paused. Best, really, to unplug them first. Lessen their power of annoyance and harm. I put my fingers to the socket…

    …and then I died…

    It was also so very innocent… we always cabled the golf cart to the house – but I was tired, so very tired. I backed out of the driveway… the noise was deafening, something cracked, the carport collapsed…

    and then I died. ❗

    I followed the rainbow to find the pot of gold. Just as I found the gold, I tripped over a leprechaun… and then I died

    I get on a plane thinking I was on my way to Key West. I notice that everyone had a parachute. This big guy grabs me attaches a harness to me and he is attached on the other side. He then steps up to the door and calmly steps out of the plane…..then I die 😆

    I’ve yet to encounter a set of tree lights that don’t imagine they’re Walkman wires, and try to tie themselves into eternal knots, though there may be some out there (ha ha) which behave more professionally. Nope… Tree lights have always spelt doom to me….

    Well not sure of I can enter as I am in the middle of the Australian summer, a coolish breeze blowing at 26C.
    Well mine would be realising that I am finally free of this unhappy life, meeting My Right and then I wake up, and know that I am going to die.
    Life can suck for some of us!!
    🙂 lol

    I’m working security at the Anaheim Convention Centre, watching them unload freight having my lunch. I reach for my drink, fall off the chair, don’t notice the forklift and then I die!!
