I was nominated by Sandmanjazz to participate in this challenge. The rules of this challenge are: 1) write something in response to the photo you are given, and 2) pick a picture of your own and nominate three people.
Is she serious? I thought, annoyed and frustrated that no one was noticing the lady feeding the animals. Doesn’t anyone see the sign that read, “Do NOT feed the animals!”? Is anyone gonna do anything?
Why don’t you do something? Another voice said in my head. Why don’t you report to the authorities? Why don’t you put a stop to these rule-breakers? Why don’t you…
“Oh shut up!” I muttered, made a face, and rolled my eyes. Maybe that voice does have a point. I should do something.
A few minutes later, I arrived at the security booth and knocked. The security guard gave me a look of annoyance, as if my knocking disturbed the reading of his magazine. He opened a slit of the window, “Yes?”
“Um, there’s a lady feeding the animals.” I spoke with an air of uncertainty. Maybe I should’ve spoke more authoritatively, I would later chide at myself.
“Thanks for reporting, lady. I’ll take care of it. Now, if you’ll just run along.” The guard shut the window, shook his head, rolled his eyes like I wasn’t there, and returned to his magazine.
Sighing, I thought I guess I just don’t have the look to be taken seriously.
Now my three nominees:
Barbara from teleportingweena
Emily from Zombie Flamingos
Elsie from Rambling of a Writer
