Day 61: 5 Minute Freewrite: Tuesday - Prompt: phone

in freewrite •  2 years ago 

You let the phone vibrate on the table. You avoid looking at it because you don't want to have to deal with who might be calling. The phone is face down so you can't see the screen. You look for other things to distract your attention.

Your foot starts to itch. You scratch it. The glare of the sun hits your eye so you look outside where you see a bird perched on the tree right outside of your window.

The phone vibrates again. You really don't want to see who is calling. The night is going so well. It is better to remain distracted by the smell of food being cooked in the oven. You check the clock hanging on the wall and see that five minutes has past. It is almost time to pull out the cookies.

The phone goes off again. This person is being persistent. It must be the person you don't want to speak with. Your night is going to end with you in a higher state of mind if you can ignore the vibrating phone.

I love this freewrite (and I hate it when someone calls when I'm not in the mood for it!) You really described the whole mental picture very well!

Sometimes I'm just not in the mood to answer the phone, even if I know who is calling!

I here you on that.

In the old days, of course, we used to have to actually answer the phone before we knew who it was.
It's the promptest of prompt delivery teams here with your challenge for today:

I was at the tail-end of those days. I can still remember using a round dial punch in numbers. What long phone cords they had back then too.
