Plane

Joe loved planes. Every weekend and holiday would find him at the airfield. He thought the world of the Blue Angels.  They were the ultimate pilots in Joe’s opinion. One Saturday Joe arrived at the airfield and was greeting all his pilot friends. Even the mechanics thought dearly of Old Joe, as everyone fondly called him. According to some he had been at the airfield forever. Today was a special day. The Blue Angels were going to land to refuel. Old Joe was so excited. After they had landed he was running around talking to each of them. To hear him talk, that was the most excitement he had ever had. The next day Old Joe never showed up, but his son did. Old Joe had died during the night. After his cremation the Blue Angels came back and took Old Joe for his first plane ride ever.

Blocks

“Ouch,” I exclaimed as I walked to the kitchen. “One of the days I’m going to throw every lego in this house into the garbage.” Still mumbling to myself, I made a pot of coffee. Turning to empty the dishwasher I found three wooden blocks in the silverware tray. “I wonder which of the boys did this,” I muttered. On the table were blocks resembling a train. In the refrigerator I found yellow legos in  the butter dish. There were other blocks in the egg tray. In a glass on the counter were white legos. I supposed it was milk. At least one of the boys has my imagination I thought. At this point, my anger was subsiding and pride was setting in. Hearing the patter of little feet, I turned. My only daughter, Lucy, stood there with a pout on her face. “Mommy, why you mess my blocks up?”

Models

Jacob has spent many hours working on his models. He has cars and trucks sitting everywhere and planes suspended from the ceiling. His room is his sanctuary. As the only boy in the family he is allowed his own room. He laughs when his sisters start fighting over things in their room. The older sister likes to put together jigsaw puzzles, the younger sister tears them up.

At age 13 everything changes for Jacob. His brother George is born. Jacob is not worried. His models look so great and George is going to love looking at them also. So he thought. At age two it was discovered that George liked to take things apart. Jacob just moved his models higher. Problem solved for a bit. George started climbing and none of the models were safe from that day on. Jacob realized what his sister had been complaining about for years.

Radio

It was Saturday evening and I was restless. Jerry and I thought that a ride in the mountains would be nice. It had been a hot day but was cooling some so we decided to take the convertible. We were having a nice relaxing drive and it was great to have some time to talk. We have only owned the car a few days having bought it at a police drug auction. Jerry was still learning about the controls and both of us are geeks about radios. Turning on the radio was a big mistake. This convertible was pimped out with speakers from front to back and the volume was loud. We were so flustered by the words and the volume, we were unable to turn it down, off or change the station. We both vowed not to ride in the convertible again if we wanted music.

Lunatic

An inmate had escaped from the nearby prison’s mental ward. He was serving a life sentence in the murder and mutilation of three women. While I was watching the news someone knocked at the door. The man standing there was very slovenly and dirty. I should not have opened the door. As he shoved in the door he grabbed me. In my room he found electric cords to tie me with. Finding scarves in my dresser, he grabbed some. He tied the scarves around my breast and pulled them as tight as possible. As he left the room I knew he was getting a knife. As he was looking at me, he said that I was different. Instead of boiling my breasts like the others, he thought he would try baking them this time.  As he lifted the knife I screamed and awoke. What a lunatic.

Deranged

I’ve lost my mind, at least I think so. Why else would I have shot him, then chopped him into many pieces. I’m glad he bought that bone saw last year to use on deer. I had told him to stop, to shut up, to leave me alone, but he just had to continue. You’re a dud, a failure, you can’t have babies. All I seem to remember hearing after that is it’s husband hunting season. They say I’m deranged. I still have his nose in my pocket. He should have kept it out of my business.

Erratic

Susie’s heartbeat was erratic and her skin was flushed. She could only lay there as he fondled and suckled her body. Susie had thought she was satiated, but Roger was showing her that he was far from depleted. His body was heated and the length of him pressed against her. Susie stretched and opened her eyes. Roger was gone and had laid the baby next to her to nurse. His leg was pressing into her.

Crazed

The man at the other end of the bar had been watching me. He had a slightly crazed look in his eyes, but since he had bought me a few drinks I let it slide. Around midnight the bartender asked me to leave. I was making his boyfriend nervous.

Obsessed

Angie could feel the eyes watching her. She tried to hurry along the crowded sidewalk but kept running into people. They looked at her like she was crazy. No matter how hard she tried she could never see anyone watching. It was always a feeling and she was becoming obsessed. The only place she felt safe from the eyes was in the bathroom. Last night, after two weeks of trying to sleep, she made her bed in the bathtub. What had she done? Why was someone watching her? What did they want? Later that day, she went to see a psychiatrist. She talked to him for four sessions. He told her that his opinion was that her stalker was the devil. He was waiting for her to mess up. She started laughing. Who would have thought that the devil would have enough decency to not follow into the bathroom.
