These Words are here to assist you or confuse you in your efforts to compose a short story. These words must be used entirely within your own story. This is not an original Idea but evolves from other frequently visited blogs from which I find Interesting. VEST..
Later in the day I shall write my short story involving these words. And here it is..
This short story is of my own making and relates to something I recall from the past Mid Sixties?
At Charleston South Carolina, I went ashore as the ships 'Limey' representative of the US Navy shore patrol. During a discussion, an American officer asked why I pronounced the rank of lieutenant 'Leftenant' and not Lootenant. "Both spell Lieutenant" I replied, But my pronunciation does not infer they live in Lavatories.
Later we attended a domestic dispute at a trailer park housing married US Navy personnel. On our arrival, a very angry person with a shot gun fired at us shattering the windshield of our truck. The driver then backed up and the police were called to sort out the mess. A few minor incidents occurred later before I returned to my ship in the early hours. When I arrived I was asked " How did things go". I replied, "It was a very quiet evening according to the Yanks"
A general feeling of lethargy and boredom was always present on that ship,Anyone denying this was probably enjoying life at my expense.
While in Devonport England, I would go on weekend leave to Portsmouth where I lived , travelling in a friends car, Another passenger in the car was our Ist LT a LT/Cmdr Much senior to me, who during the trip would ask awkward questions regarding the ship, I could tell that he wasn't amused with some of my replies, especially when I told him I was writing a radio play about the funny goings on aboard our ship, hopefully for the 'Goon" show.'. He replied "with you as its major performer, I have no doubt that it will be a great success" he replied.
''No doubt at all, with you sir, being the major character' I answered. Our driver then uttered a remark - something about sailing close to the wind. Fini.
