Lateral Thoughts on Life.

1. Caught In the Act.

Theo Adams was dusty and tired. Work on the construction site, was never easy but today had been more tiring than most. The site boss had been like a maniac, driving them to complete the project. Unlike most of the other workers Theo had left immediately after work, even before the Friday Domino game, always played to celebrate the week’s end. He’d left so quick that his friends never even got to share the drinking of a Guiness or two as was customary.

He was eager to see his wife Lily, that’s why he hurried home. He bought her a box of Barbecue Ribs on his way home and rushed,  on foot, to the small house in which they lived. He opened the gate quietly which was unusual because the old gate normally made a loud creaking noise when anyone opened it. It was also unusual because normally Theo Adams would arrive home much later on a Friday and he’d be drunk and either be singing loudly or cursing some unseen entities at the top of his voice.

Perhaps it was these unusual facts that made him surprise his wife when he opened the door. It’s hard to say who was more surprised, Theo or Lily, but when Theo opened the door his heart sank. Lily for her part tried to remain calm, almost like it was nothing out the norm, but the truth was hard, so hard to ignore. Lily had been caught in the act.

  7. Glad you are all enjoying the suspense. Only problem is I wrote it and I’m in suspense too. You see, although the next two or three parts are already written, I have no idea how it will all end either.

    Posted part 2. continue to enjoy it.

  11. You are blogging perfection. The very first post of a new blog and you are already placing demands on your readership.

    Sorry, but I feel no suspense. You needed to give much more. Paint a more appealing picture. Something to really draw the reader in before the cliff hanger.

    I jumped ahead to part two and I’m now wondering if you aren’t a writer for the TV show Lost.

    I gone.

  12. ok I think he caught her doing one of (1) breaking her diet, (2) in a compromising position with another man/woman/beast (3) tiefing money from his pants pocket (4) counting the drug money, prostitution money that she was making on the side (5) dancing around the house like a madwoman when usually these days when he try a ting she would complain how the back an ting hurting and she aint up for it and she used to limp around the house 🙂

  13. Some very nice ideas there jdid. Look forward to more of your comments as the story progresses. I’ll post less frequently, but the posts should be longer, as the story goes on. Still not sure how it all ends myself.

    I liked the “needle in the arm” idea by mad bull too.
