  Albert’s Words Micro Tale (Written by Stephanie, using Albert’s words) The interior of the PLANE was a shockingly bright LEMON yellow colour, making it feel like the sun was shining even inside. She was surprised when she KNELT down to pick up the earbud she’d dropped, that even the underside of the seats were the same colour. She had a strange desire to find an excuse to KNEEL down again just to see if it was the same in other rows as well, even though she was sure it would be. She found it delightful and wondered if others felt the same. Stephanie’s Words Micro Tale (Written by Albert, using Stephanie’s words) She couldn’t REACH her goal of eight hours sleep per night.  Last night she only SLEPT about five. In the FIELD of sleep deprivation she was a pro.  Every morning she felt like she wanted to KNEEL at the altar of the Goddess of sleep and pray for a good night!

  Albert’s Words Micro Tale (Written by Stephanie, using Albert’s words) It was a remarkable thing to see how the mushroom SPOREs formed a HOUSE-like structure in the garden. It looked as if it would perfectly fit a MOUSE family.  Stephanie’s Word Micro Tale (Written by Albert, using Stephanie’s words) When he was in his prison cell he could tell the time of day by the light coming in from the window.  The dividing line between the sun and the shadow would TRACE its way across the floor as it SHONE from early morning to late evening.  The MOUSE that shared his cell preferred to stay on the shadow side, afraid of being discovered and caught.

  Albert’s Words Micro Tale (Written by Stephanie, using Albert’s words) Oh what a night! The PIANO sounds like a carnival,  in SPITE of the small venue. He assumed they did not SKIMP on the sound system, making it a fun place to be! Stephanie’s Words Micro Tale (Written by Albert, using Stephanie’s words) Every time I went down the SLIDE, I would STICK to the SPIKY little bumps near the end of the slide. I wish they wouldn’t SKIMP on maintenance.

  Albert’s Words Micro Tale (Written by Stephanie, using Albert’s words) He had a great time cutting up the DANCE floor that night, and was grateful that he and his friends went over the NAMES of the people they met, over a late night bowl of RAMEN. Stephanie’s Words      Micro Tale (Written by Albert, using Stephanie’s words) His family encouraged him to take up a TRADE but he preferred to tend to his sheep.

Image
  Albert’s Words Micro Tale (Written by Stephanie, using Albert’s words) She stood in the same PLACE along the SHORE where she had years before. Looking out over the water she was quite surprised to see a small sounder of SWINE gathering a little further down. Stephanie’s Words Micro Tale (Written by Albert, using Stephanie’s words) They found some STEAR-like blubber on the SHORE. But before she could take a sample he had to SNIPE that it was probably from SWINE and therefore not what they were looking for.

Image
  Albert’s Words Micro Tale (Written by Stephanie, using Albert’s words) It was a remarkably ornate GRATE that covered the longest side of the CAGED in area at the back of the tropical themed coffee shop. They’d taught the parrot to say common menu items like latte, coffee, tea, sugar, scone, but when someone ordered a BAGEL the bird inevitably called out “cream cheese!” Stephanie’s Words Micro Tale (Written by Albert, using Stephanie’s words) It had been years SINCE they had TREAD down this path and now their hearts were HEAVY with sweet memories of the BAGEL shop that had long since become a fast food joint. 

Wordle #704 (May 24, 2023)

Image
  Albert’s Words Micro Tale (Written by Stephanie, using Albert’s words) He was filled with UTTER delight when they came across the OTTER close to the trail along the lake. It took a bit for his dad to STEER him away from the edge and to convince the 4 year old that he couldn’t pet the animal. Since there was no bench or CHAIR along the trail they sat on the ground together watching from a little distance away, whispering delightful little stories to each other about what the otter was doing, and thinking.  Stephanie’s Words Micro Tale (Written by Albert, using Stephanie’s words) He felt dazed, as if in a DREAM, as he stumbled across the sand straddling the SHORE.  He remembered that he had been a FLIER in a commercial jet and that the plane had gone down in the water.  He NEVER thought he would make it out of the crash alive.  His mind turned to the CYBER world because it felt like he was in a game.  He had to figure out a survival plan and how to gain the UPPER hand or there would be

Albert’s Words Micro Tale (Written by Stephanie, using Albert’s words) The serving PLATE was piled to overflowing with a mountain of roasted meats and veggies - she was barely able to carry it to serve the table, given her ELFIN stature. She was grateful, and didn’t think about his possible motives, when the CLERK from the hotel lobby came over to help her out. Stephanie’s Words Micro Tale (Written by Albert, using Stephanie’s words) He made his way to the SHIRE north of the lake country to LEARN about his British ancestors.  But sadly he had to deal with a BLERT who was the only CLERK in the Shire’s main town office.

  Albert’s Words Micro Tale (Written by Stephanie, using Albert’s words) In the meantime I will try to craft a story to SHARE in-spite of having no CLOUT within the literary world. Looking over to the table I can see the lace DOILY passed down by my Oma. The story goes that she received it as a PILON after a particularly large purchase one winter while visiting the southern states. It may be true, or it may be as likely as seeing an IGLOO down there.  Stephanie’s Words                                                             Micro Tale (Written by Albert, using Stephanie’s words) The SHORE of this northern lake was a TOPIC of much discussion and debate between my kid sister, affectionately known as KIDDO, (a name my AMIGO from high school gave her) and myself.  I maintained that we could build an IGLOO there in the winter, but she thought global warming  had made that next to impossible.

  Albert’s Words Micro Tale (Written by Stephanie, using Albert’s words) She resisted her urge to thrown some SHADE his way, after he FLASHed his cheesy smile. In spite of his being quite BRASH he did have a certain charm. Stephanie’s Words                                                             Micro Tale (Written by Albert, using Stephanie’s words) The SHAPE of the UFO was like a  long cigar and it shot across the night sky with a bright FLASH.  Then it disappeared from sight and I heard a loud CRASH.  I thought that the alien pilot must either be TRASH or just a BRASH speed demon.

  Albert’s Words Micro Tale (Written by Stephanie, using Albert's words) She felt badly about having to DOUSE his advances. She held the CLASP to her cloak tightly, protecting herself from his anticipated BLAST. She was relieved when it didn’t happen and he walked away. Only when she thought no one was watching did she dare retrieve her FLASK from her pocket, and drink deeply.   Stephanie’s Words Micro Tale (Written by Albert, using Stephanie's words) The teacher thought it would be a GREAT idea to do a field trip to a SWAMP with his science CLASS. But he had not anticipated so many problems such as quick sand, spider bites, extreme heat, and whining students.  Stopping for a moment to catch his breath he took a big swig of whiskey from his FLASK.

Image
  Albert’s Words Micro Tale (Written by Stephanie, using Albert's words) The foreman was concerned about what he saw as a  CHEAT on the SLOPE of the new tunnel they’d had the MINERs start using. He worried that after a long shift, when they were all FRIED that it would lead to a small error that would end, inevitably, in GRIEF. Stephanie’s Words Micro Tale (Written by Albert, using Stephanie's words) He SHIED away from giving her GRIEF about her Wordle score.   (Ha ha.)

Image
  Albert’s Words Micro Tale (Written by Stephanie, using Albert's words) He had never thought  it was a CURSE to be SHORT. on hair follicles - it meant it wasn't a stretch to wear it SHORN when he started balding. Stephanie’s Words   Micro Tale (Written by Albert, using Stephanie's words) She went to a MICRO STORE, where they had tiny little people and tiny little buildings. They even had a medieval scene with a knight on a horse with a long SWORD riding through a field where there were sheep that had just been SHORN.

Wordle #695 (May 15, 2023)

Image
  Albert’s Words Micro Tale (Written by Stephanie, using Albert’s words) The CHART was like a work of art when it came to navigating the waterways they were exploring. Sadly the points of interest for the land were sketchy, at best, making it a challenge to find the CABIN they were to stay at.  They were relieved when they finally were able to pull their CANOE up onto the island having recognized their shelter for the night from the photos online. Stephanie’s Words Micro Tale (Written by Stephanie, using Albert’s words) They made their way up river quietly in the dead of night, passing beaches, forest, and SHALE outcroppings and ridges. The CADRE of revolutionaries used hand signals to communicate to avoid detection.  They had also decided to CANOE rather than take power boats.  Their entry into enemy territory was almost silent and so far undetected.

  Albert’s Words Micro Tale (W ritten by Stephanie, using Albert’s words) The PLEAT that he carefully pressed into his pants every morning, belied how STALE he found his life and routine. He missed when his life had purpose and meaning - working with a piece of wood on his LATHE, creating a beautiful and functional vessel based on what the wood told him. He missed coming home to her perfect LATKEs, that he’d top with sour cream and her homemade applesauce. His gnarled, arthritic hands made it impossible to continue to create, and her applesauce was long gone, even though he had been careful and judicious with the last jars. Sighing, he stepped out of his house and walked to the coffee shop, as he did every morning, as much to watch the “baristas” create a LATTE or fancy coffee-based drink, as it was for the simple, rich black coffee and breakfast sandwich he ordered. Maybe he’d be adventurous  and try something new one of these days, he thought…  Stephanie’s Words Micro Tale (Written b

Albert's Words Micro Tale (Written by Stephanie, using Albert’s words) The yoga class was far more challenging that either of them had anticipated, including the LEAST BLAND PLANK either of them had ever attempted. Stephanie's Words Micro Tale (Written by Albert, using Stephanie's words) Besides the sermon there was a responsory and a REPLY and then the reading of the PSALM. The sermon used the metaphor of a PLANT to describe the relationship between God and the human race, but to the atheist’s ears it was just another PLANK in the platform of church indoctrination.    (Sorry.)
