Writers Workshop Thursday: A Glassy Tale

Now this is different.

After someone partakes of my fluid, I am usually placed on a circular, stone object. Today I seem to be next to a foot, overlooking what appears to be a deep crevice. I cannot see very far. I am not sure whether it is the scent emanating from the foot or just my poor depth perception (I am curved you know) as to why I cannot see the next level. I wonder if the foot is aware of the state of affairs or if it remembers I am here. If it doesn’t remember I am here, there may be a problem.

Usually, I sit awaiting orders in that enclosed cabinet thingy. While there I hear the rumors of others like me who have never returned to the home base. I hear strange tales of having ‘extras’ on hand in the event of a tragedy on the stone patio. Then there is a frightening tale of a long whip like object that comes out of nowhere, slapping us to the floor with ferocious might. Some have returned to tell the tale but refuse to give commentary on those who didn’t make it. They say, recycling was in their future. They say the word ‘recycling’ with such a shuddering horror that I don’t dare ask more questions.

Ack! The foot touched me! I am slightly closer to that drop. Also, that nasty thing touched the rim. Who is going to partake of me now? Ooof! What was that clinking noise? Oh, ice melting. it sounds so loud at times, echoing in here the way it does. Wait, the sound seems to have stirred the foot and a hand appears, pushing me away from the drop. Whew! I was beginning to seriously condensate. If I am not on the round stone the female with the pretty painted toes will start making loud noises and…

whaaaat…IS…that? There is a jingling sound, like the olive picks in the cocktail shaker.



It has taken everything in it’s path and I am next, oh smelly foot SAVE ME, SAVE ME!!

    Dogs knock everything over! I think that’s why I might be part dog … If something’s on the table, I have a decent chance of knocking it off …
