The Black Cats Swing Orchestra was on fire that night.
A blonde bombshell in a tight red dress was dancing on the floor between the tables with a thick glassed mongrel, evidently with a wallet fatter than his belly.
A tall man in a pinstripe suit and Borsalino stood up from a chair and put a huge ringed hand to the chest of the ugly moneybag.
"You're not worthy of this beauty" said, blowing cigar smoke in the face of the terrorized man and pushing him away.
" Sugar, if you want to really enjoy this swing, you have to dance with Tony Cappone" said then, grabbing tightly the chick to the wasp waist.
She tried weakly to resist, but the man opened wide his eyes and fell to the floor like an empty sack. A dart was stuck in the middle of his broad shoulders.
The music stopped, everybody screamed.
The musicians turned to the new trumpet player. He was loading the trumpet with another dart.
"Johnny Contralto sends his best regards, motherfuckers!"

Marco!!! This is great!! And the picture with it!!! Love it!

https://steemit.com/freewrite/@improv/swing-5minutefreewrite

Ooo, tricky! Your freewrite post link, @mariannewest, sends us to yesterday's post.

·

I updated it - you are too fast :) Did the prompt post first and this one took me a while....

But you smart 🤓

🤪

·
·

Ha!

·

Very clever!!

·
·

@brisby Thanks

My Freewrite:

Full throttle, down the hill.
The forest is thick, but we know every inch;
barefeet don't feel a thing.
Monkeys in a tree,
the bravest go higher.
Daddy-o was the king,
shimmy shimmy to the top.
Then there was The Swing.
40 foot drop,
Perfect lake water.

·

How cool is that!!! Is that an exercise machine you are hanging from? Very creative!!!

·

I love it!

·

I love the photo and poem! Surely

the bravest go higher.
Nice writing!

Hey guys my entry 😊 👑 . Thank you guys for praying for my exam. It was okay because of your prayers.

Hurray for a passed exam!

·
·

I still donno yet sis ❤️ , but I'm hoping for good results.

·

Love your smile!! 😍

·

that is the cutest picture of you!! You look like a little girl!!!

·

That is adorable! I will have to come back and upvote I ran mine down since this contest started!!!

Can you believe the local children's play area doesn't even have a swing? Had to improvise...

https://steemit.com/freewrite/@felt.buzz/just-don-t-do-it-a-five-minute-freewrite-big-bird-12

·

I am laughing out loud while being shocked at the same time that French children are deprived of a swing set!!! You are so funny!!!

·

Ha ha. I love it!!!! Mine was supposed to be a monkey, but it turned out to be visibly male :D

·

i think what i like most is that all your photos have your mouth wide open ... this is super cool too!

thus i have dubbed you "Man With Wide Open Mouth" :p

·
·

It's my "look how excited I am!" Face! Thanks for the name, I hope I will do it justice! :)

·
·
·

yeah you are seriously excited about this game! LOLzzz
I think you will do it great justice ... that's why naming has to be fitting. Hehe

·

That made me laugh!!! You are a happy baseball player!!! And both, you and @improv used a version of swing I didn't think of. I love the freewrites - just never know what all can be said with one prompt!

·

Tryin to reach the big U?

·
·

Nope, the Y. Wanted to turn it into an N. LOL

·

Wow!! That is dedication. Climbing and swinging from a mountain for us!!!!

·

Why do we keep outgrowing things, anyway?!

·
·

They should make adult-baby seats. 😂

·
·
·

Oh my gosh, yes! Haha

·

At least you tried!!! hahaha. what did the babies in the park think about you in their seat? 🤪

·
·

There were none around at the time. It was all mine! Hahaha

·

That's Great!!!

lol

Is the post it note swinging on your chin? 😄

·
·

I actually tried to find a swing set on my way to Debbie's and couldn't find one I could lean up against, cuz there was no way I was gonna sit in one.

Here's my entry for swigging. It seems like a strange prompt, but who the hell am I to argue.
What, Jose, but you told me it said swiggin!?
No man, I think it said swingin...swing.
But that's not what you said. Now look, I just finished that whole bottle and I haven't even written the post yet.
No worries. We just have to find a swing.
How are we gonna find a swing in the middle of the city?
Well, you're swingin now man, I mean, that guy from Uber thought we were wild, man, wild.
I don't think that's the kind of swingin they meant. We need something going, you know, back and forth.
Hey, we have some rope in the truck.
Yeah, and there's a balcony railing right here.
Excellent thinking my man.
Cool, huh?. I mean, what could go wrong?

·

Don't!!!! Do!!!! It!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

·

youve made a hammock for your nose. cool.

·

I think I figured out the photos.

·

This is really cool!!!

·
·

It turned out better than I'd expected!

·

Clever solution!!!

·

Swing that hammer, girl!!!

I was so worry that I could not make it. So, I draw a simple swing instead in the control room of a convention hall during lunch time.
Here is my selfie and entry link

Nice meeting you, daughter of the woman that hides lol. We hope your wrists will get better soon!!! Is it carpal tunnel? If yes, I can show you some yoga stretches which have helped me enormously.

The kids kept trying to make this squirrel dizzy on the tire swing.


https://steemit.com/freewrite/@brisby/shiro-s-ninth-summer-part-ii

·

Poor squirrel!! 😂 I hope your kids are helping you with finding just the right situation for squirrel selfies lol

·

Barely!!! But I am running late today too :)

·

It is almost eerie to watch the swing go back and forth.... I would love to use this as a writing prompt someday...

·
·

It would be my honoured if you used this as your prompt. 🤗

·

awesome selfie!!!!

·
·

Thank you!

This was interesting... I guess I saw swinging feet rather than a swing, so...here ya go!

·

That is great!

·
·

Swinging pendulums over the sanitarium marked dolorous bells in the wintertime. We ate mushrooms in unison and shuffled our feet. Aces high and jokers low, I thought to myself this must be it. Blue swans in striped pajamas cackled at the frost. What are you laughing at? There’s nothing funny here; how can anything be funny right now? In wintertime everything is dead; everything around is only death. Constance shook her head, no no, this is rebirth. We’re just stripping down to the basics so we can start anew. But maybe that’s death after all; it’s a metaphor, isn’t it? Cycles of old and new, no ends and no beginnings. Maybe I heard that in a movie somewhere, or in a self help manual that I got at a discount in a new age bookstore. I think it told me that doing more yoga can help me cope with seasonal depression by reminding me of those birth and rebirth cycles we speak of. Or is it death and redeath? It’s all semantics, and not the sort of semantics that really change meaning. Meaninglessness is the only form of death that really matters anyway.

·

Wowy zowy!!! Your writing is very poetic. And love your drawing!! So, you don't feel this is up to snuff for your page?

·
·

Haha I appreciate the kind words but that's really just my mind stringing together words in ways that may or may not make sense. In the ones I posted on my page, I came up with the first sentence and as soon as I wrote it an idea started to materialize as I went along even though I wasn't really planning anything. This one never really went anywhere. But hey, it's a freewrite, so it doesn't need to, right?

·
·
·

Exactly!! I think you have a poet sitting in your brain spouting out her poems for you to write down lol

·

I really like this freewrite of yours! I think the freer the better and your drawing is really nice too :) Definitely feels like mushrooms when someone is laughing and another wonders what is so funny.
I particularly like, "blue swans in striped pajamas cackled in the frost."

·

I love the way this meanders around!! It is loaded with fun phrases. I love the line about the blue swans.

·

That's DEEP!!

MomentCam_20180519_104848.jpg

The above was designed using Moment cam apps, you took a selfie and the apps changed the filter for you. Hope this counts 😘

It is you, it has a swing, it counts :)

Your selfie is good. And it is Friday night LOL
You are missing a few names. Yesterday's post reveals it all

·
·

We are way ahead and I’ll do better with names tomorrow 😊

·

It looks lovely there now. It seems that it was ice and snow just yesterday!

·
·

I know! It was nice and sunny yesterday, but in Erie at work it was only 54. I live an hour south of Erie and it was 63! Today a rain storm is on the way, I'm praying to dodge a migraine.

It is really difficult to get a selfie while swinging something.
