CheersFest 2.0 is being hosted by Mark Koopmans, Morgan Shamy, David Powers King, Stephen Tremp, and Alex J. Cavanaugh.
We've been asked to answer four questions:
Why did Lee come up with the A-to-Z Challenge?
There's an issue sweeping the globe wherein people are losing the ability to alphabetize. Lee realized the issue and stepped forward to do his civic duty to educate the masses.
If someone dreams about being a juggler, what does it mean?
Straight up, it means they've got too much going on in life, that they feel like they're juggling important things. On the other hand, it could mean your brain is doing gymnastics.
Is a post by Mr. Bird worth two in the bush?
No jesting here, of course it is!
Who could play Lee in a documentary?
Paul Newman. Come on, tell me you don't see it...
Write a flash fiction piece, 100 words, with the required words:
The challenge was on, the room full of jugglers sweating in their intricate outfits. (One wore a suit of feathers.) They eyeballed each other, sneering and snarling, and then they began tossing jibes at each other.
"You couldn't juggle two oranges if they had strings attached!"
"Oh yeah, well you couldn't catch a bowling pin if it had super glue painted all over it!"
Just as it looked about to come to blows, he walked in, the Man in the Brown Coat. He was a legend, a man they'd all heard of, one they all respected. The Bird. And he didn't need a feather suit to prove it.
"What's up fella's? Ready for the show?"
Feathers fainted, one tiny yellow bit of down floating gently to the ground.
And that's when everyone else in the room knew they'd already lost the challenge.
Now for my caption:
|Carl looked at the pin with trepidation, knowing that it could only keep him upright for so long before it lost its balance.
May you find your Muse.
