So, for a while anyway, on Wednesdays I'm going to post a short prompt, something zany and somewhat ridiculous because there needs to be more laughter in the world.
For today's prompt I'm going to tell you a little story first (if you see me irl a lot you've probably heard this one already). My parents love to watch British mysteries, and we do a lot of that when I visit them because the weather in Kansas is pretty rarely "porch weather" and it's something I enjoy too. Anyway, on my last trip we watched this show Vera that really really needs to get on Netflix because I need my fix. And in one of the episodes we watched had a suspect who was super jumpy and uncomfortable and the detectives got all excited that they were going to have an early suspect, and then he cracked.
"The planning council said he couldn't build his yurt, but I couldn't tell him."
"I'm sorry, what?"
"His yurt. It was illegal. I couldn't tell him though, so I let him put it up anyway."
And then I looked at my father, and I said "Please. Please, let this be the show that has the balls to kill someone over an illegal yurt."
It wasn't, but that's your prompt for today. Write me the most ridiculous murder confession you can manage.
"I did it. I confess. I'm sorry officer, but he stepped in my begonias again today. Last week it was the roses! How am I ever supposed to win the village garden competition if that man keeps killing my plants!"
"Ma'am, we don't have a village garden competition."
"But we might, someday."
