Once Upon a Time…

These are what I would include at the end of my personal journal entries. Some of them are good, others maybe missed their mark. I would make myself write them so at least I would come up with something unique!

Once upon a time, a freckled orphan stubbed his toe on a dresser. He cursed and the whole planet caved in.

Once upon a time, a frog hopped into the woods and kissed a prince. The prince turned into a toad and the two croaked a sad chorus that made all the trees weep.

Once upon a time, Sally went to the store to pick up tampons. Then she remembered she was a man once and didn’t have the proper equipment. She bought them anyway because she could. The end.

Once upon a time, a girl stopped feeling so self-conscious about creating things. Tonight was not that time. But she felt a little braver.

Once upon a time, a child-rain-godlet tried to push aside his curtains. They tore and frightened everything away.

Once upon a time, a lizard crawled into my brain. It was hunting brain mites and accidentally ate my memories. Who are you?

Once upon a time, a sigh of relief met a body of stress and the two danced. They walked away with a little piece of each other.

Once upon a time, a sinus stuffed itself so full, it died.

Once upon a time, a slump broke his fingers trying to scrape by. All he could do was lie there and cry.

Once upon a time, a slug was jealous of a snail for all it had. The snail was jealous of the slug because it was free.

Once upon a time, a kid drank a battery. A man pulled weeds from the yard saying, “eat your medicine.” The kid did and didn’t die.

Once upon a time, Finny was lost. It looked and looked in hopes it would find itself. Finny was lonely. And then…

Once upon a time, a nap took a person and killed her. The nap was fed up with the neglect.
