Here I sit, hanging by a wire.
I am waiting for my time to come. No one noticed as I wait above for my moment.
I see the young pop star, fresh out of the factory. Ah, I remember them well. Stock Aitken Waterman-types, now they’re all coming out of the Disney machine.
I’ve been up here for nearly 45 years. Same lights, same everything.
Oh, my time is just about here! I get my chance to do something awesome!
If I can just wiggle a little more, then I’ll be front page news!
Oh yeah, I am evil.
Inanimate object as narrator. Always a thumbs up in my book.
Sometimes, you gotta let your evil inanimate narrator out to play.
Great story, really made me laugh.
Now this. THIS…was different. (In the best of ways). I only kind of wish you stopped the story at “BONK!” because that would have been a hell of a punchy ending. I agree with Helena though—an inanimate object as narrator almost never fails. Nice work!!
Front page news? Seems a bit self focused for a narrator. But who can blame him after hanging around for 45 years 😉 Nice job.
Please confirm you pictured Bieber in your head like I did when I read this. Awesome.
I also had Miley Cyrus in mind, too.
Put both together, strike with meteorite. Froth until foamy and the mix peaks. Bake at infinity degrees.
Nothing worse than an evil light that’s also big and in a place where it can do damage.
I nearly had one fall on me before…so I know all abouts it. 😀
I absolutely love the light as narrator! Well done. And he waited so long!
He was just hanging around for his moment.
I can think of more than a few who would benefit from a sound bonk on the noggin. “Disney machine” is good.
I was with him all the way. And I loved it! BONK!!!
Interesting take on the prompt. That’s light with a mind of its own and clearly this wasn’t his taste in music. Cute.
Miles, this seems like quite a bright guy. He has all his plans laid out, and he’s patient too. Maybe he respected singers and actors back in the day too much to bonk them. That’ll definitely make some news. Nice story. 🙂
He wished he was at the Grand Ole Opry, and was once on top at the old Ed Sullivan studios.
I also enjoyed the inanimate object as narrator. Nice take on the prompt.
It seemed to be the only way that it could work out for me. 😀
Brilliant! I love it when inanimate objects can be so wise and insightful. It’s about time he claims his fame!
I really liked the Bieber comment earlier on. I’m sure he was selective in who he bonked.
Loved your take on the prompt – a light hanging around, waiting for his moment, excellent.
PS Chuckling about the Miley Cyrus comment…
We can always hope it’s Bieber that takes the hit but for my luck this malicious light would take out a truly great artist, you know, like Britney Spears…. Oh wait? Great story.
Funny. A selective light that plans. It would be scary if it was a person, but it probably thinks of itself that way. It seems to think a good bonk would benefit that star. Their head will be swollen for real now. Well done. 🙂
Swollen? Nah. A light of that weight and age…crushed. 😀
i love your take 😉 sometimes the things we trip over or that fall on us may not be so innocent
