(So, I’ve been participating in a “writers’ flash mob” of sorts called Five Minute Friday. In response to a one-word prompt, hundreds of writers sit down and write for five minutes flat. No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font or punctuation; unscripted and unedited. Here’s today’s edition…setting the timer….)
Five Minute Friday: Hide
Life is going along just fine and out pops the grumpy old troll from under the bridge.
For anyone not initiated into the Dora the Explorer cast of characters, let me tell you about the Grumpy Old Troll.
He jumps out at Dora and Boots from his hiding place under a bridge, blocks their way, and insists they solve some sort of riddle before he allows them to pass.
On any given day, life’s version of the grumpy old troll can spring wild-eyed from a hiding place and insist you solve some sort of riddle before continuing on your way.
And some of life’s riddles can be tough.
You might think you can avoid life’s grumpy old troll and his riddles, but, let’s face it.
You can run, but you can’t hide.
